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

Gabrielle, Australia A family trip was organized to the Everest Base Camp, a long-awaited adventure that was on our list for the longest time. We had wanted to organize the trip a year ago, but circumstances prevented us from doing so. Nevertheless, we finally did the trek this year and are ever so happy about it. With seven in our group, we had members ranging from 20 to 50 years old. Our guide was considerate and hiked with all of us while arranging the pacing. Logistically, everything went very smoothly. On our first day we were given a great tour of Kathmandu and also a briefing to pick up our gear and help on re-packing. Nepal Hiking Team had reservations made for the Lukla flight early in the morning and off we all went for the trek the next day. Staying at the lodges and guesthouses the higher up we went, we had the view of the mountains right from our windows! Our guide was always able and willing to make changes for us and overall, I feel like we stayed in the best available places. The itinerary of our trek was very reasonable and had enough acclimatization days to fit into the schedule. We spent two nights at Namche and Dingboche as well and had good tours of the villages. Our guide and our porters were very open and willing to help accommodate us in any way they could. Overall, the trek was beautiful and had many great and splendid moments. We are grateful to Nepal Hiking Team and their efforts. Arranging one of the best trips for our family, Nepal Hiking Team played a big part in making sure that we had a good time, and we most certainly had a grand old time in the mountains of the country with great people and beautiful landscape!
Jennifer Silva, Canada For our 12-year anniversary, I and my wife did the Everest Base Camp Trek with Nepal Hiking Team. A top-notch agency, Nepal Hiking Team was probably the best decision. With their spick-and-span record with reviews and happy customers, we were certain that we would not be disappointed. Beginning the trek, our conjecture was concreted as we were accompanied by one of the best people we had the pleasure of coming across- our guide, Bhim Adhikari. Adjusting the pace of the trek to match ours, carrying our bags, and making sure the accommodations were right and the food was good, Bhim was the one who carried all of the responsibility of the trek on his shoulders and succeeded marvelously. We had no worries nor any complaints. We were contending with our situation and happy that we were spending our time in one of the most beautiful places on the planet. The fact of the matter was that our team of guide and our porter, a 24-year-old Sherpa named Dorje, were the best people who certainly earned their share of the profit. We were treated with warmth and friendliness everywhere, making our trip thousand times more beautiful. The monastery at Tengboche, the view of the mountains while on the trail, the gorgeous landscape, and the courteous people throughout the trek were all utterly spectacular and amazing. We are thankful to Nepal Hiking Team and would definitely be using their company again for the next Nepal visit!
Astrid Reilly, Singapore Nepal Hiking Team is the best travel agencies that I had the fortune of being accompanied by. Everyone at the agency was kind and professional and I had a really good time doing the Everest Base Camp Trek. Arun was my guide and he was always amazing. He took care of all of my needs and made sure that I was comfortable. The breakfast, lunch and dinner that I was provided were all appetizing and content. It was the best trekking experience that I had and I would give Nepal Hiking Team two thumbs up!  
Ashley Rowe, Australia It was always my dream to be close to Mount Everest at some point in my life and being the enthusiastic trekker that I am, I finally had the opportunity to do so with Nepal Hiking Team! I couldn’t have chosen a better travel agency for my endeavor! First of all, let me start by saying that from the very first e-mail, I was made assured that I was in good hands. Mr. Ganga never missed any opportunity to inform me about my queries and answered all of my questions immediately and fast. Then when I arrived at the airport, I was greeted with a warm welcome and flower garlands by my soon-to-be guide for the trip, Arjun. He truly is a friendly guide who made me feel comfortable immediately. We had a very good run-in throughout the trip, he always showed great enthusiasm that matched my own and his energy was palpable! Aside from the friendly demeanor, Arjun was also extremely professional and showed the signs that he had done this thousands of time before. He never missed any beat when it came to my well-being and concern. If there was anything that I wanted, Arjun arranged it for me in a heartbeat! Back at the office as well, I was always getting calls from Mr. Ganga asking about my trip and if everything was going fine or not. Nepal Hiking Team is an agency that really cares about their customers and that was what made me so grateful for my experience with them. Not only did I fulfill my lifelong dream about being close to Everest, but I was lucky enough to choose the best agency as well. It was a parenting that truly was serendipitous! Nepal Hiking Team fully has my recommendation and I cannot emphasize enough how much I am grateful for NHT! It was an experience that will forever be engraved in my mind and bring a smile to my face whenever I remember back on it! Thank You Nepal Hiking Team, Arjun, Mr. Ganga and the whole staff for a beautiful experience!
Tanya Henderson, Australia

My husband and I did Annapurna and Everest Base Camp Treks Nepal Hiking Team. Ganga and his team members went out of their way to ensure we had a smooth and enjoyable trip and provided professional and excellent services (airport pickups, provision of city and mountain maps, goose-down trekking gear, relevant and useful advice, driver services, etc.).

We had regular contact with management throughout our time in Nepal (before, during and after trekking) and we always felt like we were in capable hands! We were even taken out for dinner and presented with EBC completion certificates upon arriving back in Kathmandu after trekking.

Our guide, Raj, was absolutely outstanding!! Not only was he great fun but he was also knowledgeable, kind and honest (this is very important as not all companies provide reliable guides - many will try to make a quick buck off tourists in the mountains whenever they can!) Our trek to Everest base Camp was incredible but the experience was made even better by having such a superb guide with us. Thoroughly recommend this company and requesting Raj if you can!
