Located in Manang district of Annapurna region, Pisang peak is perhaps the most popular ‘trekking peak’ among both experienced and beginner climbers.
Also called Zong Ri, Pisang peak appears to rear its head among the three giants, namely Annapurna I, Annapurna II and Manaslu. The first record of climbing the peak was in 1955 and since then scores of mountaineers as well as trekkers have successfully attempted to climb the peak. The peak offers impressive and stunning views of Annapurna and Manaslu ranges.
It is a fairly straight forward path to the summit from the base camp. You will have to follow a rocky path initially and then through snow to the summit. The base camp of Mera peak is installed at 4800m and the High camp at 5500m.
Pisang peak is regarded as a non-technical mountain, meaning there is no need to acquire hard mountaineering skills to climb it. However it is necessary on the part of interested climbers to have great physical fitness and endurance and adequate acclimatization period.
Pisang peak climbing combines with Annapurna Circuit trekking route which includes trek along Marshyangdi and Kali Gandaki valley, make crossing of Thorong La pass (5416m) and visit to Muktinath temple (Chumig Gyatsa), Jomsom and Kagbeni.

All accommodations for the Pisang Peak Climbing are on a twin-sharing basis. The lodges and tea houses have been selected by the Asia Buddhist Tours & Treks after personal inspection. We look at the conditions of the inns, local hygiene, quality of food, type of service and more.
We offer two types of accommodations on this peak climbing. In Kathmandu you will stay three nights at a 3-Star Hotel( could be changed as per your requirement) and,during the trekking trail you will stay in standard tea houses and camp. These places have pleasant, unheated rooms and wooden beds with foam mattresses.
All rooms are double occupancy, but you can request a single occupancy room for an additional fee, which will be available only during the trekking. However, sometimes single rooms are not available in some places, depending upon local conditions. We do work to provide the best possible options when trekking in the High Himalayas.
Food will vary between typical Nepali in the mountains. In Kathmandu there are far more choices, which include Indian, Continental, Italian, Tibetan and more. The city areas offer everything from good steaks and burgers to apple pie and pizza.
Nepali food is nutritious, and ranges from our traditional Daal/Bhat and Momo to fantastic breads, fruits and more. The cooking is wholesome and the food is tasty during the trek trail too.
For the Pisang Peak climbing there will be a license holder sherpa climbing guide and porters for carrying luggage. This arrangement ensures that if anyone in the group is sick the trip can still go on as planned. However, Asia Buddhist Tours & Treks can run this peak climbing for groups of any size. Usually, we have found that the maximum number of trekkers in any group is 12 people.
