Trip Introduction

Pisang Peak is the most popular Peak among the trekking peaks in Annapurna region of Nepal. It is on the way to the highest pass of the world and offers good scope for exploration. The western flank of the mountain is guarded by a hanging glacier and offers considerable challenge. The western end of the ridge has huge rock slabs, which make it difficult to climb. A German Expedition made the first ascent of Pisang Peak in 1955 and since then it has been something of considerable remark. Trekkers with little experience in climbing can combine the popular classic Annapurna circuit trek with Pisang Peak climbing to have the taste of climbing in Himalayas in Nepal. The peak rises above from Pisang village and yak pastures in a uniform slope of ice and snow to the final summit pyramid. Pisang peak is considered one of the technical climbing peaks among of the climbing peaks in Nepal.

Firstly, we departure to Besisahar from Katmandu and start trek enroute common Annapurna Circuit trails and reach Pisang in a 5 days. To reach the base camp from Pisang village, the path ascends through sparse wood and pasture to a Kharka at (4,380m) which is considered the best place for setting up the base camp. High Camp is set up at (5,400m) climbing to a shoulder on the South-West Ridge. There will be snow at the high camp from the end of November to the end of March. The well defined ridge leads to the final snow slop which is quite steep and little difficult to reach the summit. Summit of the peak  offers truly splendid views of the Annapurna group including Tilicho Peak, Annapurna II and IV, Ghangapurna and the Glacier Dome. Pisang Peak is indeed a "sightseeing peak. Descent is made on the same route. After a successful summit, we continue our trek to Manang valley and continue further up to Thorong Pedi.

Acclimatization

Our Pisang Peak Trek & Climbing itinerary is planned with a high degree of minimization of awareness of AMS(Acute Mountain Sickness). Going up too fast causes a medical condition serious enough to kill. The higher the altitude the less oxygen there is in the air. On the surface of Pisang Peak High Camp for example, there is 50% less oxygen than at sea level. Your body needs many days to adapt to this so for a safe trek & Climbing it absolutely essential to allow for sufficient time for acclimatization. Sensible planning is therefore required to minimize the risk of AMS. We advise specially the guest(s) with known heart or lungs or blood diseases to consult their doctor before Planning for this climbing. Mild headaches, fever, loss of appetite or stomach disorder are symptoms of AMS. Check out "Altitude illness" by Dr Jim Duff HGT's itineraries are designed to try to prevent AMS but it is important to remember, some people can be more susceptible than others.

Leader(s) and Staff Arrangements

Himalayan Glacier only employs and train Nepalese leaders and local staff. By employing and training local people they put something back into their communities. HGT currently train all their Guides in the following courses and your Pisang Peak Climbing leader will be one of the fully train Trek Leader.

  • Intensive Wilderness First Aid - KEEP (Kathmandu Environmental Educational Project)
  • Trekking Guide Training - Nepal Government's Ministry of Tourism & Civil Aviation department of Hotel Management & Tourism Training Centre of Nepal.
  • Eco Trekking Workshop & Adventure Meet TAAN (Trekking Agents Association Of Nepal)
  • English Language - KEEP
  • Conservation & Biodiversity - KEEP
  • Rock & Ice Climbing & Mountaineering (optional) Nepal Mountaineering Association

Our Trek Leaders obviously speak the English language but consider this is not our mother language and this enables a HGT traveler to pick up and use a few of the local greetings and get first hand experience of the local culture. The guides and porters know the route direction like the back of their hand, they practice the local culture themselves and they are extremely passionate about their country and it shows.

Our operation is smooth as a safety concern; there will be one Leader, one assistance leader and one sherpa porter on each group of two. This ensure if in case one get sick, it would not disturb the itinerary, the trip still running as plan as in itinerary. And please understand that our group start from 2 and maximum it goes up to 10 which is good team to communicate and facilitate in every manner.

Porters Protection: Each trekker is allowed his/her gear bag weighted not exceeding 15kgs/33 pounds that Himalayan Glacier Trekking strongly stand on porters rights and solely against any exploitation on it's operation. And we are closely working with IPPG (International Porters Progress Group)

Responsible tourism practice: Trekking are gently in the Himalayas during the recent days, areas like Everest, Annapurna & Langtang. We therefore do our best to reduce minimal impact on each trip to the mountain and all Himalayan Glacier trips aim for zero footprint impact on the natural environment and the people who live off its resources. We enforce a number of do's and don'ts for our customers and staff when out in the wilderness.
