Pisang Peak Climbing, Pisang Peak Base Camp, Pisang Peak Itinerary, Nepal Pisang Climb, Pisang Peak SummitPisang Peak (Jong Ri) is the most popular Peak among the trekking peaks above Pisang, a village on the Annapurna Circuit, within the Manang District, northern Nepal. It was first climbed by a German Expedition in 1955. It is on the way to the highest pass of the world and offers good scope for exploration. The western flank of the mountain is guarded by a hanging glacier and offers considerable challenge. The western end of the ridge has huge rock slabs, which make it difficult to climb. A German Expedition made the first ascent of Pisang Peak in 1955 and since then it has been something of considerable remark. Trekkers with little experience in climbing can combine the popular classic Annapurna circuit trek with Pisang Peak climbing to have the taste of climbing in Himalayas in Nepal. The peak rises above from Pisang village and yak pastures in a uniform slope of ice and snow to the final summit pyramid. Pisang peak is considered one of the technical climbing peaks among of the climbing peaks in Nepal.

To reach the base camp from Pisang village, the path ascends through sparse wood and pasture to a Kharka at (4,380m.) which is considered the best place for setting up the base camp. High Camp is set up at (5,400m.) 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 and little difficult to reach the summit. Summit of the peak offers truly splendid views of the Annapurna group including Tilicho Peak, Annapurna II and IV, Ghangapurna and the Glacier Dome. Pisang Peak is indeed a "sightseeing peak.
