Pisang Peak in Nepal is one of the easier peak climbing in Nepal that lies in the Annapurna region. The Pisang Peak elevation lies at an altitude of 6,092m and lies above the village of Pisang and hence it's name. This peak in Annapurna region of Nepal is in the shape of pyramid which makes it quite an impressive figure of a mountain peak. However, because of its structure the climb can be a bit difficult and technical. The summit of this mountain peak in Nepal offers amazing views of the Annapurna ranges. Mt. Dhulagiri (8,167m), Nilgiri (7,061m), Annapurna I (8,091m), Annapurna II (7,937m), Tilicho Peak (7,135m), Annapurna III (7,555m), Ganggapurna (7,454m), Chulu (6,584m), Fishtail (6,997m), Mardi Himal (5,553m), and Mt. Manaslu (8,156m) are some of the mountain ranges that can be witnessed during this expedition in Nepal.

The Annapurna Circuit trek in Nepal has been liked by many and is very popular among trekkers in the world since its opening in 1977. The trek begins from Besishahar and goes along the trails of Marshyangdi River accompanied by the amazing views of the Himalayan ranges of Nepal. This trekking circuit in Nepal is famous for its beautiful landscapes, valleys and cultural diversities scattered all over the region. As we trek along we'll get to experience the diverse geography of lush valleys surrounded with forest and the desert albeit valley of the Tibetan plateau as we gradually move upwards.

The main highlight of this travel package in Nepal is reaching the summit of Pisang Peak. The climb might be demanding and challenging but overcoming this challenge and the fruit of your labor that you're get to see from the top of the summit is truly remarkable. Climbing Pisang Peak and reaching its is summit however is not what makes these mountain climbing in Nepal special but rather the whole process that one can experience. Staying on tent at high altitude, eating the self cooked food and sharing stories to each other underneath the starry skies enjoying the view of the milky way is what makes this trek in Nepal one to remember. The climb is long and hard which will take from 8 to 12 hours depending upon the situation. It is important that you need to be physically prepared and have some climbing techniques at hand. Prior climbing experience might make it even easier for you. The best season for Pisang Peak climbing is during the Spring (Mar-June) and Fall (Sept-Nov) season.
