Pisang Peak Climbing

Pisang Peak also known as Jong Ri, is a great pyramid of a mountain located along the Annapurna Circuit within the Manang district, many trekkers combine the circuit and peak for an extraordinary journey. It was first climbed by a German expedition in 1955 and has since become one of the most popular peaks to summit in all of Nepal. Pisang village has a wide open landscape with many pastures and sparse patches of woods but as you go ever higher the terrain becomes quite steep and rocky, it is considered to be a more technical climb. The western face of Pisang is fastened to an awe inspiring glacier with immense rocks jutting out of the ridgeline; base camp lays at 4,380m and high camp at 5,400m, banked upon the south western ridge. Usually from November to March, high camp all the way to the summit has a blanket of snow covering its rocky landscape. The summit is of medium difficulty but very rewarding; upon this giant can be seen immemorable views of almost all the Annapurna group. When sitting upon these great heights beholding the colossal masses of snow and ice, silence and inspiration quickly descend and sweep us away in a torrent of freedom that is truly empowering, which is why I believe so many mountain enthusiasts are driven to these uninhabitable extremes.

Trekking to the peak takes 4-5 days leaving a very nice build up to the apex of our journey. All the people of Manang are very kind and generous, always more ready to give than receive and the land has a wealth of beauty that sets itself on constant display for the entire world to see. The rivers will quench your thirst, the forests will set your heart asoar and the people are bound to give you joy and will be sure to send you off with an belly full of homemade local cuisine.
