Pisang Peak and Thorung La Pass

  • Pisang Peak and Thorung La Pass


Pisang Peak (6091 m) stands above the Pisang village in Annapurna Himalaya range and yak pastures in a uniform slope of ice and snow. 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. Higher Camp is set up at 5450 meters, climbing to a shoulder on the South-West Ridge. There will be snow at the higher 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.After the main adventure of Pisang Peak the trek leads to Thorung La pass (5416 meters), through Manang and Ledar, which are the main attraction of the whole Annapurna Circuit trek. Due to the difficulties of crossing the pass, the circuit is usually walked in a counter clockwise direction.

After you cross the Thorung La pass the trail takes you to Muktinath and then Jomsom from where we can take flights to Pokhara
