Description

Welcome to the most popular mountain climbing in Nepal. This 17-day expedition involves a warm up trek in the Annapurna region and then a summit attack to the Pisang Peak.

With its 6091 meters of height, this amazing summit offers one of the greatest landscapes of the Himalayas. The views of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges as well other Himalayan peaks from the top are really magnificent.

Our starting point will be in Kathmandu. The itinerary of this trip includes an acclimatization program. It is aimed to maximize the chances to get to the summit.

On the way back we will cross Muktinath via the Thorong Pass, which is an important pilgrimage site for Nepalese people. If you want more details of the day by day program please find it at the end of this description.

As for the difficulty level, this ascent is suitable for all those people with a good fitness condition. Some technical skills will be a plus but they’re not mandatory.

The best months to climb the Pisang Peak is from April till September. It is also a good season to do some trekking. Please check out this hiking program in Annapurna and Dhaulagiri I offer.

So if you find this climbing trip interesting get in touch with me now. I will guide you there, sharing with you all I know about my country and its culture!

About the guide

guide profile img

I have been climbing since 1996, starting on the 8000m mountains in the Himalaya. I'm one of the few IFMGA/NNMGA certified mountain guides (Instructor) from south Asia, gaining my qualification from the New Zealand Mountain Guides Association (NZMGA) & Nepal National Mountain Guide Association (NNMGA).
I have successfully guided on Mt Everest on multiple occasions, and other 8000m peaks such as Mt Cho-oyu (8,201m) (3 times), Sisha Pangma (8,013m), Mt. Manaslu (8,163m), Mt. Dhaulagiri (8,167m), Mt. Makalu (8,463m), Mt. Lhotse (8,515m) and many more.
I have have also a strong international climbing experience and extensive knowledge of the logistics, planning and group dynamic that are also very crucial to successfully lead adventures in the Himalaya and around the world. I guided in New Zealand, Norway, France, Scotland, Thailand, Bhutan, Pakistan, India and Tibet.
I'm also a rescue expert and a technical trainer for the mountain guides training.
I very much like guiding my clients in remote places, where no tourist goes. I like also discovering new routes and peaks. Please have a look to the different trekking and mountaineering expeditions I propose and contact me if you want to discuss about them. I can of course also guide you in more 'classic' routes, just get in touch with me and let's talk about your wishes!
