Pisang Peak (6,091 m)

17 Days

Pisang Peak is also known as Jong Ri in the Tibetan Language. It is the most popular pyramidal trekking peak located in the Annapurna Region, Nepal. Pisang Peak Climbing Trip is one of the most challenging trips, which leads you alongside hanging glacier. Western ridge of Pisang Peak is considered the most difficult for this peak because there are huge rock slabs. Pisang Peak was first climbed by a German Expedition Team in 1955. This peak is thought to be a technical climbing peak.

On the way to Bahundanda, we will enjoy the greenery of slope hilly lands. We have to pass Chamje, Dharapani, and Chame, and only then we will finally reach Pisang Base Camp.
