Pisang Peak Climbing

Trip Introduction

Pisang Peak (6091m) is in the Annapurna region and is the most popular in the region. It is situated above the village of Pisang itself and the climb itself although it is technical it is achievable for people with little or no experience in peak climbing. As the village is in the Annapurna region you will get to enjoy the views the region has to offer and trekking to the village and up to the base camp will allow you to see Nepal in all its beauty. The Annapurna region is home to a ring of impressive mountains with ten peaks over 6000m and Mt Annapurna 1 is just over 8000m. It is a perfect trek and takes you through many different types of landscapes, through farmland and the rural Gurung villages. The trek to the base camp follows the Modi River and with the river, the mountains and the terraced farmland, it feels that with every turn is a new photo opportunity. All of the Annapurna sanctuary is now a conservation area project, this came into effect in 1986.
