PISANG PEAK CLIMBING

Do you have the urge to go higher and test your endurance?  Take a 6091m detour off the beaten track to a pyramid-shaped peak north of Pisang and Annapurna II on the Annapurna Circuit trail. 

Pisang Peak, also known as Jong Ri, is on the northern border in the Manang Valley in Manang District in the north of Nepal. From here Tilicho Peak (7134m), Mt. Manaslu (8163m), Mt. Annapurna II (7555m) and Mt. Annapurna IV (7525m) and Gangapurna (7455m) are visibly breathtaking.  This is truly an eye-popping smorgasbord of white snow-capped peaks right before your eyes! 

The trek begins at the predominantly Gurung village of Syange, situated alongside the Marsyangdi River and a deafening waterfall. The trail passes through Dharapani (1860m), Chame (2715m), Upper Pisang (3700m), to Pisang Peak Base Camp (4380), Pisang Peak High Camp (5400), to the Summit of Pisang Peak (6091m), Manang Valley (3450), Yak Kharka (4110m), Thorong Pedi (4,600m), Muktinath (3800m), Jomsom (2800m), Thorong Pedi (4600m), Thorong La Pass ( 5416m), Muktinath (3800m)  and then down to Jomsom (2800m) and a flight to Pokhara followed the next day with a road trip to Kathmandu.

This is a trek offering immense natural beauty with unique fauna and an opportunity to discover the various ethnic groups living in this remote region. The highlight, of course, is climbing to Pisang Peak (6091m) and trekking through Thorong La Pass (5416m). There will be stops along the trail where you will have the opportunity to acclimatize before ascending Pisang Peak and Thorong La Pass.

ITINERARY

Expand All
Sherpa Expedition & Trekking staff will be there to greet you at Tribhuvan International Airport and take you to your hotel, followed by a briefing covering information, dos and don’ts of your trek. Your safety and comfort are paramount.
Today, we will spend the day sightseeing in Kathmandu Valley with our guide. We will visit Pashupatinath, which is regarded as the holiest Hindu temple in Nepal and where pilgrims worship Lord Shiva (situated on the banks of the holy Bagmati River), Bouddhanath, a Buddhist temple known as ‘Little Tibet’ and then on to Swayambhunath known as the Monkey Temple. From Swayambhunath we drive to Kathmandu’s famous Durbar Square, a UNESCO World Heritage-listed site and located in front of the old royal palace. Upon arriving back at your hotel you may have time to do some last-minute shopping around Thamel – the tourist hub of Kathmandu. Back at your hotel, your guide will help you prepare for your trek.
Today, after an early breakfast, we will drive for about 5 to 6 hours before reaching Besisahar - about 190 kilometers from Kathmandu. After reaching Besisahar we will head by jeep to Syange where you will have some incredible views of Mt. Annapurna II (7937m), Mt. Manaslu (8156m) and Mt Lamjung (6983m). Breakfast, lunch & dinner included.
The journey today takes us along a dirt road through a gorge with amazing waterfalls cascading down into it and with numerous views of snow-capped peaks along the way. The winding road takes us from Syange and via Jagat village (1410m), and then reaches Chamje Village. After crossing the bridge there is a steep climb before we reach the village of Tal (1700m), situated next to the Marsyangdi River. Leaving Tal we continue on before reaching today’s s destination, Dharapani village where we will stay the night. Breakfast, lunch & dinner included.
Today we begin trekking from Dharapani climbing higher and a noticeable change with cooler conditions. You will see a change in the landscape at this higher elevation as the trail passes through forests before reaching the Tibetan village of the Bagarchhap with its distinctive Tibetan architecture. Climbing higher we reach the apple-growing region and farms along with pine forests and views of Lamjung and Annapurna II peaks. The trail then follows the Marsyangdi River heading upstream and passes the villages of Manang and Koto before reaching Chame. It is a very easy walk from Koto to Chame where we spend the night. Chame is the district headquarters of the Manang region. Breakfast, lunch & dinner included.
After leaving Chame on our five to six hour trek we pass through Telekhu and along the trail have some breathtaking views of Annapurna and Pisang (6091m) until we have to re-cross on a suspension bridge to the south bank of the Marsyangdi River. After crossing the river we then head higher passing a pine-forest as we trek through the upper reaches of the Manang valley to Pisang. At the upper edge of Pisang village we can see Pisang and Chulu peaks. Tonight we stay at Pisang.
Medical professionals recommend that before heading to higher elevations that trekkers spend some time acclimatizing. They also recommend staying active. From here you have some very impressive views of the Annapurnas, Gangapurna and Tilicho. Tonight we will stay at the lodge. Breakfast, lunch & dinner are included.
Today we begin our three to four hour trek by ascending to Base Camp and to find a suitable place to set up camp for the night. There are several flat places to erect our tents at Yak Kharka where we stay overnight. Breakfast, lunch & dinner Included.
Today we ascend for three to four hours all the way to High Camp climbing across the south west ridge. We will set up our tents here tonight. Breakfast, lunch, & dinner Included.
We have a long day ahead of us as we set out on a seven to nine hour trek to Pisang Peak summit. We follow the ridge and then come to a more difficult section where we fix ropes until reaching the summit. From the summit there are some extraordinary panoramic views over the surrounding mountains. After taking in the views and regaining our breath we will descend back to Base Camp for the night. Breakfast, lunch & dinner included.
We will head to Pisang Village on the first leg of our trek today and then follow the trail on the banks of the river. The landscape at this lower altitude is greener and denser compared with the desolate landscape on Pisang Peak. Manang is situated in the valley of the Marsyangdi River. Tonight we will stay at a lodge. Breakfast, lunch & dinner included.
Today’s trek is of about three to four hours gradually ascending to Yak Kharka where we will stay the night. Breakfast, lunch & dinner included.
We make our way to the foot of the pass (Thorong Pedi) situated at the base of Thorong La Pass. This is a small village where we will stay the night. Breakfast, lunch & dinner included.
Today is most likely the toughest day of the trek, hiking for around 6 to 8 hours. The higher altitude contributes to the degree of difficulty and sometimes strong winds in these upper regions. Along the trail, we may pass sheep, yaks, and merchants transporting their goods. Once we reach Thorong La Pass we will be rewarded with breath-taking views of Annapurna, Gangapurna and the eye-catching peak of Khatungkang (6484m). Leaving the pass we descend around 1600 meters and the brilliant Dhaulagiri (Dhaula Giri, meaning “White Mountain”) is the highest mountain that is entirely in Nepal. The trail is more undulating and relatively easy before we reach Muktinath where we stay the night.
From Muktinath, we pass through lush meadows, fruit trees, and streams passing through Kagbeni before we reach Jomsom in the. Kali Gandaki valley. Jomsom is the headquarters of the Mustang District and home to the Thakali people. It is worth a visit to the Jomsom Eco-Museum. This should take us about five to six hours. Kagbeni has a well-deserved reputation for its horticulture industry. Breakfast, lunch & dinner.
We have an early 35 minute flight to catch to Pokhara today. The scenic flight takes us between Annapurna and Dhaulagiri peaks and offers fantastic views of other Himalayan mountains. We have the entire afternoon to explore Pokhara and can sit by Lakeside with a drink or maybe do some shopping along the shopping area alongside Phewa Tal (lake). If time is short you may wish to fly to Kathmandu today instead of waiting for tomorrow when we drive back. Breakfast, lunch & dinner included.
Today we head back on a 6 to 7-hour drive to Kathmandu with many fond memories of Nepal and its unique culture and geography. These memories will last a lifetime!
Sherpa Expeditions & Trekking staff will transfer you to the airport for your final departure from Nepal. We hope that this epic trek will be firmly ingrained in your memory and will be enough to prompt you to consider your next trek with us!

GOOD TO KNOW

It is obligatory to possess smart travel insurance or emergency evacuation insurance that covers evacuation from high altitudes. It is advisable that you have cancellation insurance - just in case of an accident or for some reason, due to unforeseen circumstances, the trip is canceled.

For your personal safety and success, we recommend physical activities like running, swimming and some smaller climbs to lower peaks which incorporate climbs that involve the use of crampons. Be prepared for extreme exposure and steep drop-offs and be capable of carrying around 30lbs/15 kilos. If possible, get some experience in technical rock and mountaineering climbing to prepare for your trek and climb to Island Peak. Be familiar with using other climbing equipment, such as jumar ascenders, crampons, and ropes.

Meals

A lot of food you have taken altitude the higher you´ll perform. Considering the loss of appetence on a better attitude, Sherpa guide can assist you to settle on food things that have quality and best to digest at higher-altitude throughout the trekking and accommodation within the lodges. However, at base camp, our expedition cook is set the most effective menu. we recommend you bring your own food if you, therefore, need like chocolate bars, dry foods, etc. we have a tendency to cater to completely different dietary necessities and full eater menus will be provided for the asking.

Accommodation

In Kathmandu, you will stay at deluxe hotels and while on the trek your accommodation is in native lodges/guesthouses. At base camp, your accommodation is in tented camps. All accommodation is based on a twin share basis.
