With out No doubt Pisang peak climbing is the most popular climbing peak in Annapurna region. Pisang Peak Climbing offers good scope for exploration. The western flank of the mountain is guarded by a hanging glacier and offers a considerable challenge. The western end of the ridge is guarded by huge rock slabs, which make it difficult to climb. A German Expedition made the first ascent of Pisang Peak in 1955. A duration of
3 weeks is highly recommended to complete Pisang peak climbing via Annapurna Throng pass.
