Pisang peak climbing overview
Pisang peak; charm and tone of climbing is so tempting and alluring that it is obvious for all the adventure fanatics to hurl themselves for it. But, not all can afford to embark in this enticing journey as Pisang peak climbing is sorely physical and wearing job. However, the Himalayas of Nepal are so distinctively settled that they offer antithetic range of climbing adventure.
Among the easier ones is Mt. Pisang peak climbing positioned in the most celebrated region of Nepal, Annapurna. Despite being technically straightforward, the trail to the summit (6091 m) is profusely challenging and fascinating. The geographical settlement of the peak makes it possible to delight-in this journey as an add-up package with Annapurna circuit trek.
The climb is not very difficult but requires a good level of physical fitness and endurance. The final ascent to the summit involves a steep climb through snow and ice, offering stunning views of the surrounding peaks and valleys. The best time to climb Pisang Peak is from March to May and September to November, when the weather is favorable and the skies are clear. During the peak climbing season, the trail can be crowded with other climbers, but the experience is worth it.
Habitually the trail initiates from beautiful Besisahar, from where we follow the naturally blessed trail of Annapurna circuit trekking. Exploring the exotic and rugged mountainous topography of Manang valley on the way, we head up to immerse into the dense and verdant forests of oak and rhododendron. Savoring the natural taste of deep gorges, swift rivers, aquamarine glaciers, yak pastures, and green meadows, we reach to the beautiful and bonny spread of Pisang valley Nepal.
Ascending up the valley we eventually reach the Mount Pisang base camp, where we set up our camp and rest for healthy acclimatization. About 1000 meters up the base camp is high camp which serves as second spot for camping. Finally, traversing up the snowy path above the high camp, we reach the summit where some of the finest and unbelievably close up views of mountains will be waiting to delight us.
To name these include Annapurna I, II, III, IV, Dhaulagiri, Manaslu, Nilgiri, Lamjung, Gangapurna, and Tilicho. As the climbing involves significant trekking, the climbers need to boast sound physical fitness.
