Among the peaks of the Annapurna region, Pisang Peak is the most popular among peak climbers. The hanging glaciers in the western part of the mountains are very challenging. The huge rock slabs at the western end make the trip difficult for climbers.

A German Expedition team was the first to reach the peak in 1955. It is a comparatively technical peak to climb. The view of Annapurna ll and lV, Ghangapurna, and Tilicho Peak from the summit of Pisang is really mesmerizing.

Nepal is always remembered whenever and wherever a talk about peak climbing comes, as eight out of 14 summits above 8,000 m of the world are situated here with its gracious beauty.

The peaks of Nepal came to the attention of the people of the world in 1953 when Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa climbed Mount Everest (8,848 m), the highest peak in the world, for the first time. Since then, the harmonious ranges of the Himalayas in Nepal are the prime destinations for any adventurer who dare to challenge peaks.

The geographical variation of this relatively small South Asian country is a mark of excellence in itself. The country borders the tropical lowlands of the 'Terai' which is around 300 ft above sea level to the summit of Mt. Everest at 29,035.

Mountaineering in Nepal is one of the most attractive and courageous adventures. This beautiful Himalayan country is undoubtedly paradise for those who wish to conquer peaks on their own foot. Eight of the world's 14 peaks of over 8000m namely, Mt. Everest (8850m), Kanchenjunga (8586m), Lhotse (8516m), Makalu (8463m), Cho Oyu (8201m), Dhaulagiri (8167m), Manaslu (8163m) Annapurna (8091m), are only located in Nepal.

For the heavenly experience of peak climbing, Nepal Trek Adventure & Expedition provides its best service with experienced climbing Sherpa at a negotiable price excluding Royalty and other government-liable charges.

                                              The cultural experience at Pisang Peak was amazing

                                              The journey to Pisang Peak is not just about the stunning natural beauty, but also about the incredible cultural experience. Along the way, we had the pleasure of passing through charming villages like Pisang, where we were able to fully immerse ourselves in the traditions and hospitality of the Gurung and Manangi people.

                                              Interacting with the locals gave us a unique insight into their way of life, from their ancient customs to their deep connection with the land. Whether it was sharing stories over a cup of tea in a cozy teahouse or witnessing traditional ceremonies, each encounter offered a glimpse into the rich cultural tapestry of the region.

                                              We are truly grateful for the warmth and kindness shown by the local communities, which added a profound depth to our trekking adventure to Pisang Peak. Thank you, NTA, for providing exceptional packages and service.
