Peak Climbing in Nepal

Pisang Peak Climbing - 6091 m

Pisang Peak ClimbingPisang Peak (6091m) has great scope for exploration. The western flank of the mountain, which is guarded by a hanging glacier, offers considerable challenge. However access to the western end of the ridge is more problematic yes it is guarded by huge rock slabs. The first ascent on Pisang was made in 1955 by a German Expedition. The same Expedition then went on to make an ascent on Chulu east. From above Hungre the peak looks much more interesting. It looks more like a curved ridge, with the face above Pisang being the truncated southern end on the valley. The route through the upper Pisang valley leads through sparse woods and pastures to a Kharka, which provide a good Base-camp site. The high trail here, which reaches upper Pisang (3300m) though longer, is panoramic. It offers truly splendid views of the Annapurna group including Tilicho Peak, Annapurna II and IV, Ghangapurna and the Glacier Dome. Pisang is indeed a "sightseeing peak."

Equipments checklists - climbing trips
In addition to the above list of suggested trekking equipment, you should take along with various items of mountaineering tools. For any trip which has crossed by steep, snow-covered ground, or which has included section of glacier travel, it might be necessary for the group roping up as a safety precaution. To facilitate this process of roping up, you will need to maintain a minimum requirement, a climbing harness, a climbing sling and two locking carabineers. Plastic mountaineering boots, a mountaineering ice axe and a pair of crampons with front points are the other items of equipment, which are required for our trekking peak trips. (Please note: Our recommendation that you take no more than 33 pounds of trekking equipment DOES NOT include your plastic boots, ice axe, crampons or harness/carabineers. During the trek, climbing hardware will be carried separately from your personal trek bag in-group bags until needed).

An explanation of the equipment that you will need

Daypacks for climbing trips
3000-4000 cubic inches. For climbing trips, you will be required to carry more warm clothing during the climbs and also your personal climbing gear. For this reason, you will need a slightly bigger daypack than for a trekking-only trip. If you have any questions about gear, please do not hesitate to call our office for advice.

Equipment Rental
In order to minimize your expense outlay for trekking and climbing equipment you may never use again, we offer a wide range of equipment available for rent for the duration of your trip. All rental equipment can be picked up from your trip leader upon arrival for your trip.
