Overview

This is an attractive and the most technical climbing peak in the Annapurna region. German expedition team made the first ascent in 1955. This fascinating peak can be seen from the Pisang village, way to the regular classic Annapurna route while we go to the round Annapurna trek from Besisahar after driving from Kathmandu via Jagat-Dharapani-Chame. We turn right side and cross the Marshyangdi River to go in Pisang peak base camp 4700m through Upper Pisang village where we can visit the monastery of Tibetan Buddhists. We continue our trek vertically up to install tented camp in Pisang High Camp 5100m and next early morning, we have to climb up the black slippery rock parts where climbing techniques are essential. Then, we start to climb in snow parts at 45 degrees and reach the top. The climbers can see the panoramic views of Annapurna, Manaslu, Himlung, Kangaroo, and the hidden Nar Phu valley. Either trek can continue for Thorong Pass 5416m or Tilicho Mesokanto pass. Finally, fly back to Pokhara from Jomsom.
