Kathmandu-Besisahar-Chamje-Pisang Peak Summit--Muktinath via Thorang La-Jomsom-Pokhara-Kathmandu

Pisang Peak Climbing Overview

Pisang Peak is one of the most famous Peaks among Annapurna region of Nepal. Pisang peak lies towards opposite North of Annapurna II which is little north on the way to the highest pass of Annapurna (Thorang La). The western part of the summit offers considerable challenge where the western end of the ridge has huge rock slabs, which makes it difficult to climb especially for beginner climbers. Trekkers with little experience in climbing can combine the popular classic Annapurna circuit trek with Pisang Peak climbing to have the taste of climbing in Himalayas in Nepal. Pisang Peak was first climbed by a German team in 1955.
