Tour Details

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.
