Pisang Peak rises above from
Pisang village and yak pastures in a uniform slope of ice and
snow to the final summit pyramid. Pisang peak is considered
one of the easy climbing peaks among the trekking peaks in Nepal.
To reach the base camp from Pisang village, the path ascends
through sparse wood and pasture to a Kharka at 4,380 meters
(14,366ft) which is considered the best place for setting up
the base camp. High Camp is set up at 5,400 meters (17,715ft)
climbing to a shoulder on the South-West Ridge. There will be
snow at the high camp from the end of November to the end of
March. The well defined ridge leads to the final snow slop which
is quite steep but not difficult to reach the summit. Descent
is made on the same route.
