Pisang Peak Climbing is one of the strenuous yet thrilling trekking routes that exist in the Annapurna region of Nepal. The trip is a fabulous combination of an adventurous road trip, challenging trek and fascinating flight over the Himalayas. Pisang Peak, also known as Jong Ri, is an exquisite peak with an altitude of 6,091m. This climbing trek will take you to the peak of this mountain, which is also the highest elevation of the trip, and bless your eyes with the majestic landscapes around the Annapurna Circuit trek route.
This mountain was first climbed in 1995 by a German expedition team. Since then, scores of climbers and trekkers have already been at its peak. The trip begins with a drive from Kathmandu to the Lamjung district. The place where you start walking differs and can be chosen for your interest. We join the Annapurna Circuit trek route and trek along. After passing Chame, our path diverts from the circuit trek and heads north towards Upper Pisang, Pisang Peak Base Camp, High Camp, and finally the top of the mountain. After ascending to the summit, we then start climbing down and head towards Muktinath. On the way, we cross Thorong La, which is the highest pass in the world. Then we reach Jomson and take a flight back to Pokhara from where we again fly to Kathmandu.
The views of the Annapurna Ranges, Dhaulagiri, Gangapurna, Tilicho, and many other mountain peaks and landscapes will let you speechless with the beauty they unfurl. Visiting Jomson and Muktinath adds to the religious and spiritual experience on the trip. You will also be able to learn more about the lifestyles in upper Himalayan regions of the country and see how the facilities and services differ from those areas which are situated in the southern part of the country, and easily accessible.
Similar to any other high altitude trek route in Nepal, the perfect season to do this trek route is spring (Feb-May) and autumn (Sept.-Dec). Because winter causes heavy snowfall, it blocks our trail and even causing life-threatening problems and summer causing unpredictable weather situations.
