Tour Details

Pisang Peak is considered as a technical peak to climb in Nepal from 6000m-6500m. Pisang Peak (6091m) rises from yak pastures above the village in a uniform slope to the final summit pyramid, which is an undistinguished snow and ice slope. 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, would appear to offer a considerable challenge. Its a long snow slog above Pisang village, steep snow at the top. The mountaineering school at Manang uses Pisang Peak for (advance) training to the climbers. Alpine Asian Treks has a well experienced climbing guide to climb the Pisang Peak and a climbing permit.

After breakfast, we will take a long and scenic drive from Kathmandu towards Chamje. Our drive goes along the banks of Trishuli river for few hours and then along the banks of Marsyangdi River. Before it was only possible to drive to Besisahar, but recent construction of the motor road has made it possible to drive further to Chamje – the starting point of the trek. During our drive journey, we will have the opportunity to observe the daily activities of local people for survival while our drive passes through small roadside towns and villages.

Day 4Trek from Chamje to Dharapani

From Chamje we will start our trek following the trail that passes through dense rhododendron filled forest and beautifully terraced farmlands as we enter Manang region. During spring season the hills are filled with red rhododendron flowers which makes our trek truly incredible journey. We will pass along the villages of Tal and Karte before crossing the landslide affected area. Our trek continues as we head towards the village of Dharapani for our overnight stay.

Day 5Trek from Dharapani to Chame [2710m/8891ft]

Leaving Dharapani, we continue our trek by following the trail that goes through landslide affected areas. We should watch out for rock falls while our trek goes along the landslide affected areas. Before reaching Chame we will pass along villages that are influenced by Tibetan culture and tradition. Chame is the main administrative center and headquarters of Manang district. From Chame, we can enjoy magnificent views of Lamjung Himal and Annapurna II.

Day 6Trek from Chame to Upper Pisang [3700m/12136ft]

After having breakfast at Chame, we will follow a steep trail that goes through dense pine forest as we enter into higher altitudes. We continue our trek gradually ascending, our trail widens and we will find ourselves surrounded by magnificent peaks all the way to Pisang. From Pisang, we continue our trek with an additional climb of about thirty minutes which will lead us over to the top of a big hill to reach Upper Pisang for our overnight stay.

Day 7Rest/Acclimatization day at Upper Pisang

We have reached over 3,500 meters above the sea level. So acclimatization is essential to avoid mental and physical illness. Thus, today we will take a rest day at Upper Pisang for acclimatization and exploration. Besides, Upper Pisang offers several good hikes options for best acclimatization. Moreover, we will have magnificent views of several snow-capped high mountains including Annapurna, Gangapurna and Tilicho Peak from Upper Pisang.

Day 8Trek to Pisang Peak Base Camp [4380m/14370ft]

After spending a good rest day at Upper Pisang we continue on our trek following the trail that gently ascends passing through alpine vegetation to reach open summer grazing pastures, Kharka at 4,380 meters. Here, we will set up our base camp and our Sherpa crew will quickly set up the camps and make necessary preparations for shifting the camp to higher altitudes before attempting the main summit climb of Pisang Peak. Enjoy the magnificent views of surrounding high peaks during our trek today. It’s best to rest which helps in restoring energy much needed for further climbing.

Day 9Climbing to Pisang Peak High Camp [5400m/17712ft]

From the base camp, we continue to follow the trail that climbs higher to the shoulder on the south-west ridge. Our trail steepens as we head higher to reach a good camping site at 5,400 meters. It is a short day trek but can be very tiring as our trail comprises of steep climbing sections. Hurrying in high altitudes is no good idea, so resting every now and then we head towards a good campsite for setting up our High Camp. Once we arrive at the campsite, our Sherpa crew will quickly set up the camps and make final checks on climbing gears that includes ropes, ice axes, harness, crampons and other essential climbing equipment required for the main summit climb of Pisang Peak, the following day.

Day 10Summit Pisang Peak [6091m/19983ft] and back to Base Camp

Today is the day we all have been waiting for. Fully acclimatized and properly equipped with all the climbing gears we start early with the aim to reach the summit before noon as the strong winds after midday can generate obstacles in reaching the summit. Following the footsteps and guidance of our experienced climbing experts, we begin to climb a well-defined ridge. We will overcome several technical sections and head towards the summit of Pisang Peak. Our tiring climb to the summit is rewarded with magnificent views of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri Himalayan Ranges including Glacier Dome and Tilicho Peak. We will spend short quality time at the Pisang Peak summit and then descend following the same route to reach back to the base camp.

Day 11Trek from Pisang Peak Base Camp to Manang Valley [3450m/11316ft]

After successfully accomplishing the summit of Pisang Peak, we start our return journey by leaving the base camp and following the trail that goes across the riverside.

We will have the opportunity to experience the traditional lifestyle of the local Manangi people while exploring the village of Manang.

Day 12Trek from Manang to Yak Kharka [4110m/13484ft]

From Manang, our trail heads north and climbs a stone wall that stops domestic animals from leaving the grazing grounds of high pastures. Soon we begin to descend to reach a suspension bridge over Ghyanchang river. We will cross the suspension bridge and pass through a couple of tea shops. Our trek from there is a moderate walk for about an hour before arriving at Yak Kharka.

Day 13Trek from Yak Kharka to Thorong Phedi [4600m/15092ft]

Leaving Yak Kharka, we will follow the trail that climbs fairly on an easy gradient towards Ledar. From Ledar our trek continues on a leveled path for about an hour before descending down to cross a wooden bridge over Kone river. We will cross the bridge, climb for a while and then follow a rather easy trail to arrive at Thorong Phedi for our overnight stay.

Day 14Cross Thorong La [5416m/17764ft] to Muktinath [3800/12467ft]

From Thorong Phedi our trail climbs steeply towards a watercourse before climbing over another large gully that is structured by the melt of Thorong Peak. Our climbing trek continues as we head towards the top of Thorong La Pass at 5,416 meters. From the top of Thorong La Pass we can enjoy magnificent views of Annapurna Mountain Ranges to the south and Mukut Himal to the west bordering Dolpo. Our trail from the top of the pass descends towards fine grassy meadows. We continue our trek until we arrive at a highly acknowledged pilgrimage site of Muktinath.

Day 15Trek from Muktinath to Jomsom [2670m/8757ft]

From Muktinath, we will avoid the motor road and trek passing through Jharkot. Our trek goes along the small irrigation stream to arrive at Khingar.

Day 16Morning flight from Jomsom to Pokhara and Sightseeing at Pokhara

Today we take an early morning scenic flight from Jomsom to Pokhara. After landing at Pokhara, you will be transferred to the hotel. We will spend rest of the day sightseeing around Pokhara. Pokhara is home to thick forest, emerald lakes and a place of remarkable natural beauty. The reflection of the Machhapuchre (Fish-Tail) over the serene Fewa Lake makes this place truly magical. Besides, visiting sacred places and sightseeing around the city of Pokhara is a good way to spend your day.

Day 17Drive from Pokhara back to Kathmandu

After breakfast, we will take a drive from Pokhara back to Kathmandu. It takes approximately four to five hours drive to reach Kathmandu from Pokhara. Our drive journey goes through the scenic hilly zigzag roads and along the banks of Trishuli River. We will have the opportunity to observe the daily activities of the local people for survival, while our drive journey passes through several roadside market towns and villages. After arriving at Kathmandu, you can either have rest at the hotel or take a walk around the busy shopping streets of Kathmandu.

Day 18Leisure day at Kathmandu

You would surely like to see as much of Kathmandu as possible. An early start is practical to visit the temples of Kathmandu. The world heritage sites of UNESCO that weren’t possible to visit on the second day of the trip can be visited on this day.
