 Pisang peak is one of the popular peaks which lies in the Northern part of Nepal, within the Annapurna region in the Manang district. Pisang peak stands steadily at the height of 6091m and looks like a pyramid of ice and snow. The peak was first climbed by the German expedition in 1955. The trail to Pisang Peak is beautifully decorated with cultural villages, holy sites including Muktinath, and one of the highest mountain pass called Thorang La pass. Besides this, the route also passes through green vegetation, and forest allowing us to see the amazing wildlife of Annapurna Conservation Area. Many rare animals and plants are found here like snow leopard, red pandas, Himalayan Tahr, etc. However, the stunning view of Lamjung Himal, and Mount Manaslu remains the main attraction of this trek.

Temperature and weather- 

The best seasons to climb this peak is in autumn and spring. The temperature is cold but bearable, the days are less windy, the clear atmosphere makes this peak more appealing. During the spring season, you can see the flower blooming everywhere along with green vegetation. Autumn provides a spectacular view of snow-capped mountains with crystal blue skies. Moreover, these seasons come with few challenges which make the climb relatively easier. The winter season has harsh weather and is covered with snow, sometimes blocking the way. The monsoon is warmer but the trails are muddy and slippery due to heavy rainfall. 

Food and accommodation 

In lower altitudes, there are enough teahouses available for you to spend your nights. They have a small room with a twin-sharing bed, blankets, and pillows. The room and toilets have to be shared. However, once you arrive at the base camp, there are no such facilities available and the only solution is to camp. You need to prepare tents, camping sites, and food by yourself. Or, if you choose to travel through any agencies they will be the ones to manage all these things and also hire a cook. If you are traveling solo, tents, sleeping bags, mats, liners, cooking gas, utensils are highly recommended. 


The gateway for your trek is Syangje or Besishahar, to which a bus is available from Kathmandu. It takes almost 6-7 hours to reach Syangje from Kathmandu. Once you reach Syangje, you need to start trekking to Dharapani, Chame and further.
