Pisang Peak Climbing (6,091m)

Pisang Peak ClimbingPisang lies just north of the Manag valley which the popular Annapurna Circuit passes through. While sometimes offered as a three day excursion from the village of Pisang, this can only be done if properly acclimatized.

The climb since 2005 approaches via the west ridge. The upper part of the ridge, above he high camp at 5,200m is guarded by huge rocks slaps which make it difficult to climb, especially in wet or snowy conditions. Inexperienced climbers can feel more comfortable on Imja Tse or nearby Chulu Far East.

Naturally there are fabulous views to be seen from top over the Manang valley and the Annapurna range.German expedition has made the first ascent of Pisang peak in 1955.
