Pisang Peak Trek.

Pisang Peak stands at elevation of 6091 meters up above from Pisang village in Annapurna Himalaya range and yak pastures in a uniform slope of ice and snow to the final summit pyramid. Pisang peak is considered one of the busy climbing peaks among the trekking peaks in Nepal. To reach the base camp from Pisang village, the path ascends through sparse wood and pasture to a Kharka at 4420meters, which is considered the best place for setting up the base camp. High Camp is set up at 5450meters, climbing to a shoulder on the South-West Ridge. There will be snow at the high camp from the end of November to the end of March. The well-defined ridge leads to the final snow slop, which is quite steep but not difficult to reach the summit. Descent is made on the same route.

Leaving Pisang, we have a choice between trails heading north and south of the Marsyangdi River, meeting up again at Mungji. The southern route goes by Hongde (3325m) and involves less climbing than the northern route by way of Ghyaru. While containing a more rigorous path, the route along the northern bank of the river holds better mountain views than the southern.

Today holds a long trek beginning at 4 a.m., enabling us to reach the pass by 9 or 10 a.m. Otherwise weather conditions will greatly affect the journey. We cross over at an altitude of 5416 meters, and can be exposed to strong winds if the crossing is made too late. We start climbing up a steep path that is regularly used and easy to follow. Problems may arise, however, due to the high altitude and snow. Snow often makes the crossing for more difficult. About four hours’ climb we’ll reach the pass, marked by chortens and prayer flags. At the top we’ll be rewarded by the magnificent view, after which another four will take us to the holy town of Muktinath (3800m). Muktinath, meaning “place of Nirvana,” is home to the Muktinath temple as well as several monasteries. It is said that all sorrows are relieved when visiting the temple, a scared pilgrimage site to Hindus and Buddhists alike. The chief pilgrimage usually takes place in September.
