Pisang Peak Climbing with Nepal Guide Treks starts with a scenic drive from Kathmandu to Chamje - the starting point of the trek. From Chamje we begin our trek following the Marsyangdi River all the way to its source at Manang glacial lake. Passing through the desert like arctic zone at west of Manang, we make a rest for acclimatization and preparation at Upper Pisang. We continue further up towards High Camp where we quickly set up our tents. Before the climb we check our health conditions and the necessary climbing equipments such as crampons, harness, tying knots, ropes and ice axes. Once we make sure everything is perfect, we head off for climbing the summit of Pisang Peak. The climb is a uniform slope to the final summit pyramid which is snow covered and icy. Thus, following our experienced climbing experts is very crucial for overcoming the technical sections and achieving the considerable challenge to summit Pisang Peak. After accomplishing the summit, our return journey leads to Jomsom via Thorong La Pass. Our wonderful experience at Pisang Peak Climbing with Nepal Guide Treks ends with a scenic flight from Jomsom to Pokhara, and drive back to Kathmandu.
