Trip Overview

Bless yourself with the fascinating views of mountains and Manang valley as you rise above the summit of Pisang Peak!

If you are looking forward to climbing a peak in Annapurna region of Nepal then Pisang peak climbing is the most opted expedition journey in that particular region of Nepal. Pisang peak is a pyramid shaped peak that spreads uniformly above the yak pastures and village of Pisang. The steeply sloped peak made up of ice rocks is quite technical to climb. However, it offers the best views of Annapurna panorama, Tilicho peak, Gangapurna and other glaciers in the region along with the isolated Manang valley. The climbing journey is spiritual in a sense we encounter various monasteries, stupas, chortens and above all pass Muktinath on our way.

If you want to experience the raw appeal of mountains by climbing up to its peak, then learn to handle ridges and fixed ropes as you traverse through the sloppy rock faces of Pisang peak. Though the climb is challenging and demanding, the spectacular views that your eyes perceive as you summit the peak is nothing less! It is a reward to your hard earned effort. Climbing up the peak is not just limited to peak climbing, it is an experience where you will enjoy staying on tent and eating the self-cooked food. It is an opportunity to tackle with what comes by. Your climbing journey depends on the weather condition and may vary from 8 to 12 hours. For climbing up the Pisang peak, you need to be physically fit and should be aware of few climbing techniques.

Reviews

Raymond Low, Singapore Nepal Hiking Team provide an excellent guide to me when I hiked Everest Base Camp. My guide, Mr. Prakesh Rai, is very professional and caring... He always gives me very informative replies whenever I have a question or two about the terrain which we are trekking, the history of certain towns or places we passed by or stayed...He is always asking how I am (my old right ankle injury came back)...and will help me carry my load.... We had a good time together especially when we take photographs of the awesome scenery.....He works tirelessly and would be a concern for my diet and always asked me if I had enough of food, hows my leg was, and whether feeling ok especially when we are going towards a higher altitude..... We had a wonderful acclimatization climb and he is always observing me how I am doing. Nepal Hiking Team rocks!.... And I would sincerely recommend my friends to this group..... It’s simply awesome!... Thank you Nepal Hiking team and it's truly a great experience traveling with your professional guide!
Yang, Singapore It was an awesome experience in Nepal, in which a big part of my trip was covered in the mountain, thank to NHT. Ganga, the company manager has been engaging since my enquiry and very efficient and patient with all my queries. They are flexible to customize to my needs due to my planned itinerary besides hiking. They also made arrangement for airport pick up and Ganga met me in person in my lodge to go through the procedures and discussion. 2 days prior to the trek it was raining heavily and many flights were cancelled. We were lucky to tag along a rescue helicopter to Lukla, also thank to Ganga's arrangement. When we arrived at the start point, we were welcome by the friendly guide and porters. My relationship with Gurung, the guide was very good, he took care of me every single bit of the trip, as I was a slow walker in the team. He would check our conditions from time to time to ensure our well beings. Gurung and I joked around in the tea houses and we made many friends and some exchange of cultural knowledge. I was not well when I returned from Base Camp. We discussed and we decided that an evacuation was needed. Gurung visited me in the hospital and sent me back to the hotel after discharge. I had a farewell lunch with him. Ganga and Hari, the 2 managers visited me on the 2 days and they even sent me to the hospital again for report collection. Hari also sent me to the airport on my departure day. I have total satisfaction and heart-felt appreciation for Nepal Hiking Team. There were other companies who tried to compromise prices and quality but not NHT, who insisted on quality and care above all. I'm back in Singapore safely. And they are keeping in contact with me on some follow-ups. I truly want to recommend you this company for their awesome service given the reasonable if not attractive price! This trip was so awesome although I had some hiccups on my decent. I miss Nepal alot, and the friendship shared.
Stephen, Australia I finished the ABC and Bhutan Tours with Nepal Hiking Team and had a very good time. It was a great pleasure dealing with Balaram and Ganga. They are extremely professional, flexible, and accommodating. prior to the trip, I had been constantly emailing Balaram with my questions, whether or not they are directly related to the trek. Balaram was always extremely responsive with detailed answers and he was always patient. When I first got to Kathmandu, both Ganga and Balaram met me at the hotel to greet me. Throughout the trip, they constantly checked up with the guide to make sure that everything went okay. Overall, the trek was well organized and I can say with confidence that the team has done their best to ensure that my needs were met. I am already thinking about coming back to Nepal for my next trek and I will certainly go with Nepal Hiking Team again.
Ian, Canada My wife and I did the Everest Base Camp Trek as organized by Nepal Hiking Team. We read guidebooks and numerous websites leading up to this trip, but nothing quite captured the awesomeness of just being there in person. Each day of our trek was physically and mentally exhausting, but our guide saw to it that we were looked after - be it on the trail, dining, or settling in at the lodge each night. Nepal Hiking Team did a fantastic job for us; I could not be happier with how this trip was organized, and how Balaram and Ganga took care of us.
Evelyn, Ireland Organised this trip from Australia with very limited trekking experience. Ganga and his team were extremely professional and approachable in answering our questions and providing guidance. The travel itinerary was tailor-made to suit our dates. The accommodation in Kathmandu was excellent, accommodation along the trek was the best available and our guide and porter were extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Our flight to Lukla was cancelled and our guide Mr Bim had organised a helicopter within a few moments. Felt very safe and secure with the local knowledge and expertise. The Nepal Hiking Team look after you from start to finish; meeting you at the airport with a garland of flowers and wishing you farewell with a Nepalese scarf. We were a party of three from Ireland and thoroughly enjoyed our trip. Couldn't recommend this company highly enough. I will be advising anyone from Ireland to use this local company for sheer value and professionalism!!
