Located in the Annapurna region, Pisang Peak lies just north of the Manang Valley, standing between the two towering 8,000m peaks of Annapurna I and Manaslu. The peak rises from above the village of Pisang in a uniform slope of ice and snow to the final summit pyramid, from where there are superb views over the Annapurna range, Manaslu and the Manang Valley.
Climbing Pisang Peak offers climbers an interesting and adventurous journey that combines a mountain ascent with superb trekking through a variety of eco-systems, diverse cultures, and stunning landscapes.
A German expedition made the first ascent of Pisang in 1955. Unlike many of Nepal’s trekking peaks, this climb does require previous experience with crampons and ice-ax. The climbing route approaches via the West Ridge. The western flank of the mountain is guarded by a hanging glacier, presenting a significant challenge and the upper part of the ridge, above the high camp at 5,200 m, is guarded by huge rock slabs which make it difficult to climb, especially in wet or snowy conditions. Inexperienced climbers may feel more comfortable on Island Peak or nearby Chulu East.
