PISANG PEAK

Pisang Peak was first summited by J.Wellenkamp in 1955 when he made a solo ascent as part of a German Expedition. The peak itself lies in the Manang district. The route to Manang and Pisang Peak goes up the valley of the Marshyangdi river. The trek takes you through the lush green Marshyangdi valley but the landscape slowly changes along the way. Higher up along the trail, the terrain gets progressively dryer until you reach the arid rain shadow area of Manang. Accordingly the life-style of the inhabitants changes due to their adaptation to the climate and conditions.

This gradual change along the route makes this trek highly interesting. Lower down near Pokhara you will find the Gurungs and a little higher, the Thakali people. Still further up, live the Manangay people who resemble the Tibetans in features as well as religious practices.

You can begin the trek to Pisang from Gorkha or Besisahar. These two starting points are reached by bus from Kathmandu. The ride to Gorkha is four hours and the settlement at Pisang is reached after an 8-day trek. Here you will come across the Ongre airstrip, a Climbing school and Himalayan Rescue Association Aid Post. En route to Pisang you will pass through Bulbule, Synage, tal and Chame(2,713m), which is the district headquarters of Manang.

It is possible for foreigners to undergo mountaineering training conducted here by the Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA). You will pass through lovely pastureland and sparsely wooded areas where the base camp can be set up. The popular route to the summit is via the southwest ridge. Pisang Peak is considered an easy climb with little difficulty encountered on the way.
