The Pisang Peak or the Jong RI, rising above the village of Pisang situated on the Annapurna circuit in the Manang District, is one of the most popular climbing peaks in the Annapurna region of Nepal. Shaped like a pyramid, the peak rises 6,091m above sea level with a high camp at the altitude of 5,400m and the base camp at the altitude of 4,380m. Climbers can experience snow at the high camp from the end of November to the end of March. The peak is one of the smallest climbing peaks in Nepal. The summit offers some splendid views of the Annapurna group: Tilicho, Annapurna II & IV, and Gangapurna. The peak was first climbed by a German Expedition in the year 1955.

For mountaineers, the Pisang Peak climbing is one of the famous adventure activities in Nepal. We drive from Kathmandu to Besisahar - the starting point of the Annapurna circuit trekking. We follow the circuit trail up to the village of Pisang, climb the peak, get back to the circuit trail, and continue towards the Thorung La Pass (5,416m) – the highest pass of the Annapurna region, then walk down to Jomsom via Muktinath.

Pisang peak climbing, if combined with the Annapurna Circuit trek allows you to better experience the natural and the cultural beauty of most parts of the Annapurna region. Climbers can experience the variety in landscape, vegetation, climate, flora, fauna, birds and the settlement, lifestyle,  and centuries-old monasteries and culture of people living in the Lamjung, Manang, and Mustang districts, right below the  Annapurna massif, Dhaulagiri, Nilgiri, Tilicho, Gangapurna, Lamjung Himal and other towering peaks.

Climbing the Pisang peak requires a special permit, technical climbing knowledge, and a high level of physical fitness, sound health, and mental determination. If you have made up your mind, Amigo Treks and Expedition can help you with both the package and the permit. With our standard 18 days Pisang Peak Climbing package, you will be fully supported on 3 meals, tea/coffee (twice a day) and a tent on the climb, a tea-house on other days, and bed and breakfast in a deluxe hotel before and after the trek. The package also includes a guided sightseeing day tour to some of the world heritage sites in Kathmandu. Enjoy a free map as well. Or, you have an option! Fully customize the package to your requirements and budget. We guarantee flat rates, special group discounts, and 100% departure on each customized package. October & November (Autumn) and April & May (Spring) are the best seasons to climb Pisang peaks in terms of weather, temperature, and visibility. Enjoy!

Today is a great day as we ascend to the summit of the Pisang peak. We start early in the morning from the high camp. Initially, the trail passes through the rocky, icy and hanging glaciers, which makes climbing a little difficult. The middle part of the peak demands technical climbing skill in 45 degrees and the help of fixed rope in every step of the upward hike.

Muktinath is the destination of the day. It's going to be a tough day as we need to conquer the altitude of the highest pass (5,416m) in the Annapurna region of Nepal.
