Pisang Peak is the most popular Peak peaks in Annapurna region of Nepal. It is located on North of the Town of Pisang and Annapurna II. Trekkers with little experience in climbing can combine the Annapurna circuit trek with Pisang Peak climbing to experience and taste of climbing in the Himalayas in Nepal along with Thorong la Pass. The peak has rises above from Pisang village and yak meadows in a uniform slope of snow to the final summit pyramid. Pisang Peak Climbing with Thorong Pass is also considered as one of the easy climbing peaks among the trekking peaks in Nepal. 

The trail to Pisang Peak leads through vastly distinct flora & fauna towards the majestic peak of Mt. Manaslu and Lamjung Himal. To reach the base camp from Pisang village, the path climbs through light wood and pasture to a Kharka, which is considered the best place for setting up the base camp. A major intersection of the path meets at Dharapani while trekking through Larkya La. The ridge of Manang valley is really rich in unique culture and landscapes. In fact, Annapurna and Damodar peaks dominate the valley. Our trek from here follows a demanding walk.The trial takes you to a place from where you can see the entire panorama of the Annapurna Range. The trail then climbs up from the Manang valley to reach the top of the Thorong Pass at 5416m. Then will get a chance to visit the famous temple of Muktinath (3802m). Then the final part of the trek takes us to Jomsom from where we will catch a flight back to Pokhara across the great Himalayas. 

Pisang PeakClimbing with Thorong Pass is a great introduction to Himalayan mountain climbing. You will surely enjoy this 3-day expedition from the pretty Upper Pisang Village. At base camps, the amazing mountain views will simply take your breath away.

Conquering the summit is going to be the most challenging part of our expedition. We will fix the cables wherever we feel it necessary and cut our way through pike axe and thus prepare for the climbing. We will reach the summit through perilous trekking.

Reviews
Heavenly Himalayas and Everest base camp Trek
Trip Date: 04/10/2016

That was my dream to be there once in my life. Everest base camp trek was my dream. But.. last month I was there. it was an unforgettable experience and beautiful achievement of my life. Amazing views of a mountain just in front of my eyes, beautiful views of Khumbu icefall, glacier and glacial lake. Wow ! Heaven on earth.
While I reached in Kalapatthar 5,555 m, I thought I was in the top of the world. I found myself surrounding the beautiful Himalayas such as Mt. Everest, Pumori, Nuptse, Lhotse and so on. By the stunning views of the Himalayas and Himalayan range, I felt nervous and neither I am able to speak nor express my happiness.
Everest base camp trek is adventurous. there is a lot of difficulties. it is also one of the dangerous trekking in the world. I want to recommend all of you to choose good trekking partner. Your smart choice will make your travel successful. I found #Himalayan Recreation is a good one and that was my perfect choice.
I can't forget one kind, helpful and smart person in my lifetime. He is Bharat, my friend, my guide. He made my trekking more beautiful than my expectation.

Thank you so much, Bharat and Team Himalayan recreation.

Great company, Wonderful Everest base camp
