Pisang Peak is stands at elevation of 6091 meters up above from Pisang village in Annapurna Himalaya range and yak pastures in a uniform slope of ice and snow to the final summit pyramid. Pisang peak is considered one of the busy 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 4420meters, which is considered the best place for setting up the base camp. High Camp is set up at 5450meters, 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.

After crossing the Thorung La pass the trail take you to the Muktinath then Jomsom from where we can take flights to Pokhara.
