trip Overview

Pisang Peak Climbing is considered the most desired trekking destination in the Annapurna region in Nepal. Pisang Peak locates just above the Pisang village and rises opposite Annapurna II (7937m). This Peak stands in the shape of a Pyramid on the northern border of the Manang valley. Pisang peak was the first ascent by the German Expedition Team in 1955 A.D. From Pisang village, it takes 3-4 days to summit Pisang peak then back to Pisang village.

Pisang Peak climbing with Nepal Dream Path Treks and Expedition starts after the wonderful drive from Kathmandu to Bhulbhule. From Bhulbhule, our trek starts with following the Marsyangdi River and walking through the charming villages. This trekking trail offers you an excellent taste of the wider variety of cultures, climates, and geography. We get the chance to see the great view of Mount Manaslu, Annapurna, and Gangapurna from Pisang Peak Summit. From Pisang village, it takes 3-4 days to summit Pisang peak then back to Pisang village. The wildlife here is the snow leopard, blue sheep, deer, monkeys, and many more.  Pisang Peak Climbing Expedition is the best alternative trekking of Mera Peak Climbing. The trails back on the way to Jomsom then drive to Pokhara and fly back to Kathmandu.
