Situated on the northeastern side of the Annapurna region in Nepal, Pisang Peak (6,091 m/19,984 ft), also known as Jong Ri, was first successfully summited by a German expedition team in 1955. Pisang Peak Climbing is a 21-day adventure that combines trekking and climbing to reach the pyramidal peak above the village of Pisang. With its symmetrical terrain, Pisang Peak is known as a 'trekkers peak' that provides one of the easiest and shortest climbing experiences in the Himalayas.
The journey commences with a drive from Kathmandu to Chamje, followed by a trek to Upper Pisang Village. From the base camp, the trek continues to the high camp before reaching the Pisang Peak summit, which marks the climax of the journey. The descent follows the same route, and the trip concludes with a drive from Chame back to Kathmandu.
On the way, you can see breathtaking views of many towering mountains, including Tilicho Peak (7,134 m), Dhaulagiri (8,167 m), Fishtail (6,993 m), Annapurna (8,091 m), Mt. Manaslu (8,163 m), Mt.

Pisang peak climbing route
Starting from the base camp, the Pisang Peak climb is a thrilling and demanding experience that requires a good level of physical fitness and basic climbing skills. As you begin your ascent, the trail gradually turns into a rocky terrain that will put your climbing abilities to the test. Following a well-marked path, you will reach the Pisang Peak High Camp.
The climb from the base camp to the High Camp is a strenuous endeavor, requiring a slow and steady pace to acclimatize to the high altitude. As you move higher, you will need to use fixed ropes to scale the steep and snowy slopes. The final stretch of the climb becomes extremely vertical, with minimal snow cover.
