Pisang peak climbing involves trekking in the world famous Annapurna region and sumitting the Pisang peak. The Pisang peak rises above the village of Pisang over Marshyangdi valley, and the altitude of the summit is 6091 m.
During the trek, we also get to visit the holy site of Muktinath and the Mustang/Manang valley behind the Annapurna Himalayan Range.
Considered as an easy climbing peak, Pisang peak provides its climbers an interesting journey passing along varied ecosystems, diverse cultures, and amazing landscapes. Although this climb is considered to be among the easier ones of the Himalayan region, a reasonably high level of physical fitness and health is still strongly recommended.
