Pisang Peak is the most famous peak among the other trekking peaks in the Annapurna Region of Nepal.

The trip starts from Beshi Sahar and trek following Annapurna Circuit routes and approach Pisang in 4-5 days. The path passes through light wood and meadow to a Kharka (4380m). This is also said to be the best place for setting up the base camp. High camp is placed up at 5400m on the South-West point. The snow could make walking a bit difficult to reach the summit from the end of November to the end of March. The Summit of the peak presents truly amazing views of the Annapurna range along with Tilicho Peak, Annapurna II and IV, Glacier Arena, and Gangapurna. It can also be said as Sightseeing Peak because of truly splendid views. After the completion of the summit, we will trek further to Manang Valley and further up to Thorong Pedi crossing the highest pass of the world, the Thorong La Pass (5416m) in the morning, and descent to Muktinath Temple, the holiest temple of Nepal. You will trek down to the Kagbeni (Get way to Upper Mustang or Lo-Manthang) and further to Jomsom; the capital city of Mustang district; from where either you can fly to Pokhara or drive through the rough road via the Kaligandaki River.
