Pisang Peak Climbing

Pisang Peak Climbing

Pisang peak is one of the popular peak in Annapurna area. The peak rises above the Pisang village located in Manang district, which comes under Annapurna Conservation Area Project (ACAP). This is one of the easy climbing peak but still gives an opportunity to discover the popular Annapurna circuit trek and two of the eight thousand meter mountain of the area. From top of Pisang Peak a stunning view of Mt Manaslu, Annapurna II, III, IV and Gangapurna is visible. The trail to reach the top passes through yak pastures and villages underneath. The peak is growing like a flat pyramid making easy for people to climb up. The trip normally starts from Beshisahar and end in Jomsom, a forbidden small town behind the Annapurna range or if you have some spare days, doing trekking further down through Kaligandaki valley takes another popular Mountain View point called Poonhill.
