Although it is not mandatory to have prior training for Pisang Peak climbing, we strongly believe that some training experience will boost your confidence and climbing skills to increase the chances of scaling the summit as well as to fully enjoy the experience.

Around the summit is around 70 degree of slope which will require the usage of around 200m rope. Both fixed rope and main rope will be used. The views of the Annapurna ranges and others are extraordinary from the summit. We return to the base camp for an overnight stay.Included meals:Breakfast Lunch Dinner

As we walk near Manang the climate becomes more cold and dry. However, a short visit to Barge Monastery, the biggest monastery in the Manang District should cheer us up.

The trail follows this valley northward, passing a few pastures, a scrub of juniper trees, as it steadily gains elevation. The trail further passes near the small village of Ghunsa, a cluster of flat mud roofs just below the trailhead. Now the trail goes through meadows where horses and yaks graze. After crossing a small river on a wooden bridge, the trail passes an ancient old Mani wall in a pleasant meadow and then reaches another small village of Yak Kharka. Small but gradual ascent is the key to avoiding altitude problems.Included meals:Breakfast Lunch Dinner
