Pisang Peak Climbing (6,092m/19,987ft) rising above Pisang village of Annapurna Conservation Area is one of the most popular trekking peak in northern Nepal. The climb for Pisang Peak starts from Besishahar. The trail will pass through the dense forest and local villages, towards the majestic peak of Mt. Manasalu and Lamjung Himal. A major intersection of the trail meets at Dharapani after passing through Larkya La Pass (5,140m/16,863ft).
The path ascends to Kharka (4380m/14,370ft), Pisang valley, where one sets up a base camp. After climbing to a shoulder on the South-West Ridge, one set up a high camp at 5,400m. Afterwards, the trail follows a demanding walk to the Pisang Peak. You can catch the panorama of Annapurna mountain range from a point during the climb (One may encounter snow at the high camp from the end of November to March). The well-defined ridge leads to the final steep snow slope. The descent is made along the same route.
