Pisang Peak Climbing

To some, the journey towards the isolated valley of Manang serves a spiritual experience. You can immediately differentiate between the diverse landscapes. The semi-arid and dry landscape of Manang is a bit harsher environment, but it offers supreme views of the Himalayan peaks. The path during ascend can get steep and sloppier. We cross the rocky rides making our way through the challenging Thorong La Pass (5416 m.). We descend to Muktinath, an important pilgrimage site for Hindus and Buddhists. The territory abodes many ethnic Buddhists and Tibetans. Our journey takes us further to Jomsom and our final stop, Pokhara.

The Pisang Peak climbing is suitable to visit mostly all year round because it is considered as one of the most natural trekking peaks in Nepal. But trekkers generally prefer to visit the place during spring and autumn as there are lower chances of rainfall and snowfall. Also, the skies are clear and offer best views of the Majestic Mountain and landscapes at this time.
