Nepal - Pisang peak (18 Days)

Pisang Peak is located in the Annapurna region and offers good scope for exploration. The western flank of the mountain is guarded by a hanging glacier and offers a considerable challenge. The western end of the ridge is guarded by huge rock slabs, which make it difficult to climb. A German Expedition made the first ascent of Pisang Peak in 1955.

Pisang Peak is one of the most popular trekking peaks in Nepal. Located in the Annapurna region, Pisang Peak lies roughly in between two gigantic peaks, Annapurna I and Manaslu, both of which are at the height of approximately eight thousand. The trekking path along this route offers great scope for exploration along with stunning scenic views.

Considered as an easy climbing peak, Pisang peak provides its climbers with an interesting journey passing along varied ecosystems, diverse cultures, and amazing landscapes. En route, you get to savor the beautiful nature’s treats such as the stunning waterfalls, lush green paddy fields, arid deserts, oak forests and the deepest gorge in the world. All these highlights contribute to making this trekking trip a popular one.

Pisang Peak rises above from Pisang village and yak pastures in a uniform slope of ice and snow to the final summit pyramid. The western flank of the mountain is guarded by a hanging glacier offering a considerable challenge. The western end of the ridge is guarded by huge rock slabs which add to your challenging climb. If you are looking for an interesting and adventurous expedition crammed with exquisite visual treats, then this is an ideal trip just for you.

After ensuring that everyone is in peak condition and has the necessary equipment, we will begin our Annapurna trekking. We will start with the drive along the Kathmandu-Pokhara Highway to Dumre and then follow the rough route by the Marshyangdi River, we will pass through the low-lying villages and rice fields. The landscape along with the lifestyle of the inhabitants changes radically as we drive leave Kathmandu behind. After 6 hours long drive by car, we will finally reach Besi Sahar. Besi Sahar is the capital of Lamjung district and from there we will hike up to Bhulbhule which is a short distance away.

From Besi Sahar, we will take a drive up to Syangey/Chamje (local buses are available). And then we will trek along the trail to the banks of the Marshyangdi Khola, passing through paddy fields and subtropical forests. Upon treading along a succession of rock-strewn trails, we will descend to a grassy riverbank. We will cross the suspension bridge below Chamje and climb two steep sections of the trail to reach the village of Tal. Tal is populated with Gurungs and Tibetans.

We will skirt through a narrow field from the village and come across the Dudh Khola, which originates from the south face of Manaslu and then veers to the left. Sinuous trails of the Annapurna II become visible as we arrive at Bagarchhap, a Bhotia village with colorful prayer flags fluttering in the breeze. As we continue ascending through forests of pine and oak, we will pass through Dhanakyu before coming to a thundering waterfall. 

Further on, the Marshyangdi River enters a gorge and the trails follow a rock-strewn path. We can pause for a while and take in the splendor of the picturesque Manaslu. When the steep incline ends, we will follow a path amid magnificent rhododendrons and continue on a gently rising path. We will cross a stream before entering a pine forest. As we enter the pristine hamlet of Kotho, we will be treated to an enchanting view of Annapurna II. Treading further, the route reaches a large white gate with a corrugated iron roof, which is the entrance of Chame. Chame is the administrative headquarter of the Manang district.

After a mesmerizing sight of the glowing Lamjung Himal [6893 m] in the morning, we will be heading off for Pisang. En route, we will cross a large suspension bridge along Marshyangdi and approach houses and lodges on the northern side of the river. Our trekking trail meanders through barley field leading to Teleku at 2775 meters. As we leave undulating mountain passes, we will enter into a fascinating apple orchard which is near a bridge at 2840 meters. On crossing the bridge, the pristine hamlet of Bratang appears. History has it that Bratang used to be a Khampa settlement. A stone memorial of a Japanese climber has been built in this place. After leaving the forested village, the valley changes from a V-shape to a gentle U-shape.

Before us, the Annapurna mountain range rears up. Further on, continuing with our steep rock-strewn trails to the south side and cross a long suspension bridge at 3040 meters. From this vantage point on the bridge, we can get to view the Paungda Danda rock towering majestically more than 1500 meters above the river. En route, we will be able to capture splendid views of Annapurna II rearing up on the east and Pisang Peak on the north-east. We will cross a bridge and enter the village of Pisang.

We will kick start our trek early in the morning by crossing the Thorung La [5416 m]. As the trail progresses further, it will become steep though well-defined. After steadily climbing for 4 hours, the steep trail eases and soon we will encounter chortens and prayer flags along the mountain pass. We will reach an altitude beneath which lie spectacular views of Kali Gandaki valley and pristine hills of Mustang. Amid the ambience of Himalayan beauty, we will descend to Muktinath. From Muktinath, we can capture excellent views of Dhaulagiri. Eventually, the moraines give way to grassy slopes before a pleasant walk along the Jhong Khola Valley to Muktinath.
