PISANG PEAK CLIMBING

The Pisang Peak was first ascended by a German Expedition team in 1955 and at present it is one of the most popular ‘trekking peaks’ in Nepal. The Pisang peak is located in the Annapurna Sanctuary. The Annapurna Sanctuary is a high glacial plateau which is surrounded by a circle of mountains, especially the Annapurna mountain ranges.

A hanging glacier in the western face of the Pisang Peak makes it quite challenging for inexperienced trekkers to make it to the summit. However, for someone with some trekking experience, climbing this peak is not very difficult.
