Trip Description

Our Pisang Peak Expedition is considered as one of the easier climbing peaks among the trekking peaks of Nepal.  Pisang Peak, 6,092 meters, (19,978 feet) has majestically stood above the village of Pisang and has the shape of a pyramid toward the summit.  The trekking starts from Besisahar in the Valley of the Marsyangdi River.  One can enjoy the diverse flora & fauna along the trail until reaching the majestic peak of Mt. Manaslu and Lamjung Himal.  When trekked from Larkya La, there is a major intersection of the trail at Dharapani.  The Manang Valley is rich in culture and it is dominated by Annapurna and Damodar peaks.  From this valley, we trek gently to the Pisang Peak.  A beautiful panoramic view of the Annapurna Range is in view from this section of the mountain.  The trail slowly ascends from Manang valley as we reach the top of the Thorong Pass (5,416 m.).  Crossing Thorong Pass, we visit the famous temple, Muktinath (3,802 m).
