overview

Pisang Peak (Jong Ri) 6,091m is located in the northern part of Nepal in Manang valley, which the famous Annapurna Circuit passes through. Our journey to Pisang Peak starts from Besishahar in the Valley of Marshyangdi River. We continue to Dharapani followed by a climb leading to Pisang village, resting at the foot of the mountain. To reach the base camp from Pisang village, the path ascends through sparse wood and pasture to a Kharka at (4,380m) considered as the best place for setting up the base camp. Pisang Peak expedition offers us the magnificent Himalaya views of Mt. Dhaulagiri 8167m, Mt. Manaslu 8163m, Mt. Annapurna 8091m & more than two dozen of the snow-capped mountains of Annapurna region trekking trails. On our way back, the route leads us towards the Muktinath, which is an important pilgrimage site for Nepalese people. We cross Thorong La Pass, the highest mountain pass across the world from where we reach Muktinath. The final part of the trek takes you to the Jomsom, from where we fly to Pokhara and drive to Kathmandu.

Good to know

Insurance

It is mandatory to have good travel insurance or emergency evacuation insurance which will cover evacuation by any means of transportation from high altitude. It is also highly recommended that all member have cancellation insurance in case of an accident prior to departure, or if the trip is canceled due to unforeseen circumstances.

Fitness & Experiences

Prior to the trek, we suggest physical activities such as running, swimming and cycling combined with climbs to smaller peaks which includes climbs that involve travel on crampons under all sorts of conditions. Be sure you are comfortable with extreme exposure and steep drop-offs for long periods of time and capable of carrying the heavy pack of an average of 30lbs. Be familiar with jumars, ascenders, crampons, all your gear, and knot.

Food

The more food you eat at altitude the better you´ll perform. Considering the loss of appetite on a higher altitude, Sherpa Shepherds guide will help you to choose food items that have quality and easiest to digest at higher-altitude during the trekking and accommodation in the lodges. However, at base camp, our expedition cook will be set the best menu. We suggest you bring your own food if you so desire such as chocolate bars, dry foods, etc. We cater to different dietary requirements and full vegetarian menus can be provided on request.

Accommodation

In Kathmandu, you will stay at star deluxe hotels and while you’re on trek your accommodation will be in local lodges/guesthouses. You should therefore not expect the standards that can be achieved in luxury accommodation in the city. All accommodation is arranged on a twin sharing basis during the trekking and local lodges won’t be of course as like in hotels in Kathmandu.

Emergency Rescue

In case of any high altitude sickness problems normally as a primary precaution first it is advised to come down immediately to a lower altitude for some rest and in the inferior condition, you have to further come down either by airplane or by land transportation.

Weather Forecast

For the climbing weather report, we advise you to use from Meteo Swiss or from Austria or we can help you to get in contact with them. For the prompt weather, Forecast sends to you by SMS or email or on phone to prepare your summit.
