It can be a perfect way to add an adventure factor to your trekking activity! Pisang peak rises tall over an elevation of 6091 meters just above the Pisang village, a stopover on the route of Annapurna Circuit Trek. Located in the northern section of Nepal in Manang district, Pisang peak is a popular climbing peak that lies between two majestic peaks – Mt. Annapurna and Mt. Makalu. From the Pisang village, the peak shines like a pyramid of ice and snow. Moreover, the top of the peak offers some fantastic views of Annapurna panorama that includes the mountains like Mt. Himlung, Mt. Manaslu, Mt. Khangaru, Mt. Annapurna II, Mt. Annapurna IV, Lamjung Himal, Gangapurna, Annapurna III, Tilicho Peak, Glacier Dome and many more.
The route to Pisang Peak
It starts with a scenic drive along the highway route to Chamje. Then, we start trekking along the lush countryside landscape to Dharapani. Further, we ascent all the way up to Pisang village. It is a beautiful village that lies on the foot of the glorious Pisang peak. From the village, we walk up to Pisang Base Camp and acclimatize ourselves for the climb ahead. Using the climbing gear, we follow the lead of our climbing leader and make our way up to the summit of Pisang Peak. From the peak we descend down to Pisang and follow the trail of the Annapurna Circuit to Thorong La Phedi. We cross the Thorong La pass and trek to Muktinath for spiritual vibes in the temple with amazing views of mountains in the backdrop.
Why Pisang Peak climbing in Nepal is so popular?
Pisang peak climbing as a whole is a journey with diversity. With this trek, one can explore the diverse culture, diverse people, diverse flora and faunas in the Annapurna region of Nepal. During the journey, we pass through some stunning locations enriched with diverse ecosystems, cultures and amazing landscapes. Moreover, it offers some diversified forms of gorgeous nature like mountains, rivers, valleys, forests, farmlands, waterfalls, etc.
Is Pisang Peak climbing difficult?
Though the Pisang peak in the Annapurna region is one of the lower altitude climbing peaks in Nepal, it is technically a bit challenging. From the Pisang Peak High Camp, we climb up a trail full of rocky fragments, sediments, pitches and rocky slabs covered with snow. Our leader and supporting crew will tie ropes on the route. We will follow the footsteps of the leader with the help of our climbing gear. The final ascent up the summit is steep and exposed to snow, therefore the climb can be a bit tough sometimes! However, a bit of practice, preparation and self-confidence is enough to accomplish our climb up to the Pisang peak.

Best Days of My Life
I and my colleagues visited Nepal back in the year 2017. I was not an experienced hiker but anyway chose Annapurna Base Camp Trek with a trekking agency in Nepal. It was like a challenge for me to trek to the 4000 m altitude, but Mr. Ram helped us in every way possible. He was there from the start of our trekking journey in Pokhara to our end days in Kathmandu. Ram kept pushing me forward and even waited for me to catch the other team. He guided me from choosing plain food to meditating. Although I was a victim of altitude sickness and couldn't enjoy the trek to the fullest, I am very grateful to have chosen him.
Annapurna Base Camp is a beautiful place in the Himalayas. The Gurung Village, Poonhill, Pokhara every place was just outstanding.
I have now developed a hiking attitude, and I have been training for the EBC trek now. I can't wait to visit the Himalayas again.
Perfectly Organized Upper Mustang Trek
All thanks to Mr. Ram for organizing the Upper Mustang, trekking perfectly from beginning to end. I, along with my bunch of friends, had a delightful experience with the Heaven Himalaya team. For us, it is the best trekking agency in Nepal. The guides and porters were very flexible and took care of everything around us.
I recommend everyone to try these young guys to go hiking in Nepal.
Wonderful Trekking Experience
My wife and I visited Upper Mustang and were lucky to have chosen Heaven Himalaya. We had a wonderful experience trekking in Upper Mustang. As soon as we landed in TIA, we were welcomed by Ram. He was very easy and responsive to work with. He explained all the queries we had and gave a brief description of the tour. As we were watching videos and reading blogs about Upper Mustang, we had a lot of expectations about the place and the trekking agency we were working with. We had a private 18-day tour with a porter. And to be honest, we found everything beyond our expectations. The hills, mountains, monasteries were all amazing, especially Lo Manthang is a great place to visit. Our guide was also equally supportive and friendly. The team made our trek more enjoyable. While writing this, it reminded me of the days we had on the trails. Thank You again for the wonderful experience. Best wishes to Jason and Esha. We will definitely love to return and probably do the Everest base camp Trek this time.
Trip of a lifetime- Annapurna Circuit Trek
Heaven Himalaya Team offers a magnificently arranged trekking involvement in Nepal. Ramhari answered instantly to all my messages. They make a solid effort to make your vacation in Nepal an extraordinary one and genuinely went well beyond my desires.
I couldn't remember the name of the guide but my boy, you were more than amazing. I wish you good luck in the days to come.
Everything from pickup to trekking in the mountains was very professional with excellent service.
So, I strongly suggest everyone and will trek with Heaven Himalaya again in the future.
Glorious Experience in EBC Trek
We did an EBC trek with Ram and his team back in April 2019, and it was a glorious experience. Ram is a very knowledgeable, resourceful, and very helpful guide. 2 of us got unwell during the trek, and he was very prompt and took care of us in any way that was available.
We enjoyed our chat and his sense of humor along the trail and at the teahouses. He even got us a special breakfast and pickle salad at Namche Bazaar and always fulfilled the strange request with our dietary needs. EBC trek is amazing. With Ram, it is even more spectacular. Thanks for the amazing trip. Looking forward to island peak climb in the future.
