About Pisang Peak Climbing with Annapurna Trek

The trek after the wonderful climb of Pisang peak finally leads to the top of Thorungla reaching the highest point of this trek. From here the trail descends most of the way to Pokhara passing through the holy site of Muktinath. Muktinath holy water spouts is one of the sources of the Kali Gandaki River as well. This grand trek follows the world’s deepest gorge of Kali Gandaki River valley and passing the villages of Jharkot and Kagbeni to Jomsom for the sweeping scenic flight to Pokhara and then to Kathmandu. The dramatic deep valleys, Buddhist Culture and mountain scenery is the reason for this wonderful trek, and the experience is truly mind blowing.

PISANG PEAK 6,091m /19,983ft
Pisang peak rises from yak pastures above the village of Pisang, in a uniform slope to the final summit Pyramid which is an undistinguished snow and ice slope. Looking from above Humdre the peak is more interesting and can be seen as a curved ridge, with the face above Pisang being the truncated southern end of the mountain. This is made up of steeply tilted rock, the dip slope of which faces the valley and is well seen in this peak and the great rock slabs further down the valley.

The peak obviously has a lot of scope for exploration and pioneering, the whole of the western flank, which is guarded by a hanging glacier which might appear to offer a considerable challenge, whilst a traverse of the whole summit ridge which connects to a more northern summit before curving back west looks a superb possibility, towards the western end of the ridge, however looks problematical as the ridge is guarded by a huge rock slabs, a feature on this side of the valley.
The Climb
South-West Face and Ridge.
The first ascent was made solo by J.Wellenkamp in 1955 during a German expedition to Annapurna. This same expedition also made an ascent of Chulu East. From upper Pisang village ascend a path through sparse wood and pastures to a kharka (sherpard shelter) at 4,380 meteres (14,370ft). which provides a good site for base camp. A faint trail continues onn open hillside,following a ridge and climbing to a shoulder on the south-west ridge at 5,400m/17,716ft a suitable site for high camp.
Under some conditions this may be under snow. Above, a well defined ridge leads to the final snow slope which leads quite steeply although without difficulty to the summit. Descent is made by the same route.
