Descending the same route concludes with a drive from Chame to Kathmandu.

Swayambhunath Stupa Swayambhunath Stupa - An ancient religious architecture located atop a hill west of Kathmandu kathmandu Valley

Kathmandu is noted for its architecturally beautiful monuments with religious and historical significance. Although Kathmandu Valley boasts seven UNESCO World Heritage sites, we will be able to visit only 2 to 3 of these sites on this day. 

Early in the morning, after having breakfast, you will be driven to Kathmandu Durbar Square, located in Basantapur. You can witness the former Royal Palace of the past monarchs, laden with elusive architecture. From thereon, you will be driven to Pashupatinath Temple, revered by pilgrims as the most popular Hindu Temple. 

Moving on, you can visit the spherical Buddhist Pilgrimage site, Swayambhunath Stupa/ Monkey Temple, sitting on a hilltop to the west of the city. You can choose to visit the Boudhanath Stupa, one of the biggest Stupa’s in the world, located in the northeastern skirt of the city, if time permits.

Additionally, you will also complete the necessary paperwork with the assistance of your guide. Furthermore, we will have pre-trip discussions where you can clear any doubts you might have about the climb. Check your packing list so that you do not miss out on anything. 

Overnight stay at a hotel in Kathmandu. 

Day 3: Drive from Kathmandu to Chamje (1,410m/4,625ft, 209km, 8 to 9 hours)


After having breakfast, we will catch a bus to Chamje. Driving through the Prithvi Highway along the Trishuli River will be lengthy. The road, at times, is bumpy and can get tiring. However, the views compensate for the difficulty, if any. 

Along the way, you will come across rolling hills and scattered settlements. The ride will proceed from the banks of the Marsyangdi River. Before the road construction, it was only possible to drive up to Besisahar, but now the motorable road leads to Chamje. 

Chamje is a small village in the Marsyangdi Valley, which is also the starting point of our trek. After the long drive, take some rest at the lodge and prepare for the next day’s trek. 

Overnight stay at Lodge in Chamje. 

Day 4: Trek from Chamje to Dharapani (1,860m/6,102ft, 9.25km, 5 to 6 hours)

After breakfast, begin your journey to Dharapani. The trail crosses many suspension bridges along the way. After crossing a bridge over the Marsyangdi River in the initial phase of your trek, pass through fields of corn, barley, and potatoes. Enter into a forest covered with rhododendron and bamboo. Rocky routes will eventually lead to Tal, then Karte. 

Cross a slopy landslide area and walk past a Buddhist prayer wheel. Navigating through grassy trails in the slim bamboo and terraced sugarcane fields, arrive at Dharapani. The ethnic Gurung community inhabits it. After the first trekking day, help yourself with a generous serving of rice, lentil soup, and curry to quench your hunger. 

Overnight stay at Lodge in Dharapani. 

Day 5: Trek from Dharapani to Chame (2,650m/8,694ft, 15.5km, 5 to 6 hours)

Walking along the side of the Marshyangdi river, you will reach Koto. The remote Nar Phu Valley Trek begins from the village of Koto. But we will enjoy some dried apples here, then head to the trail that leads to Chame. 

Chame is the administrative headquarter of Manage District. You will find relatively good lodges here. Enjoy a hot shower and other basic facilities before the following day's trek lead to remote areas where these facilities are difficult to find.

Day 6: Trek from Chame to Upper Pisang (3,300m/10,826ft, 13.7km, 5 to 6 hours)

Upper Pisang Upper Pisang

The trek for today takes you to Upper Pisang, further inside the Marsyangdi Valley. In the initial stage of the trek, it will take you around 2 hours to reach Bharathang village with the sun shining above your head and the crisp air around. The village is famous for sweet apples. 

Then you will follow a trail with Himalayan scenery in the backdrop towards Dhukur Pokhari. The trail has been carved on the side of the road, and beneath, you can see the turquoise river flowing swiftly. Be mesmerized with the views of the giant natural carved steep mountainside called Swarga Dwari, meaning ‘Gates to Heaven.’ It is unlike anything you will have ever seen. Following a zig-zag trail, you settle Dhukur Pokhari. 

From thereon, you begin your high route hike by crossing over three bridges and a football field towards Upper Pisang. The ancient village of Upper Pisang on the banks of the Marsyangdi River boasts amazing views of Annapurna II. 

Overnight stay at Lodge in Upper Pisang. 

Day 7: Rest and Acclimatization Day at Upper Pisang

Today has been set aside as your first day for rest and acclimatization. As there will be a drastic rise in altitude, your body needs to adjust to the climatic change to prevent altitude sickness. 

After having breakfast, you will leave your gears and heavy backpack in the lodge and head for a hike to nearby viewpoints. First, you can explore the village of Upper Pisang that is inhabited by Gurung, Ghale, and Tibetan Immigrant communities. There are no more than a handful of lodges in the area.

In the scattered settlements around the area, you will find old brick houses. There is a school, moreover a football ground in the area where you can interact with the joyful kids. You can head to the nearby monastery for vistas of mountains like Mt. Gangapurna and Annapurna. Head back to your lodge and try some authentic dishes made from rare Himalayan herbs.

After having breakfast, early in the morning, you will head on to the base of Pisang Peak. In the initial phase of the trek, walk through thick forests until Kharka. Kharka is a wide grassland where locals graze their cattle in summer.  

The Kharka, located near a ridge, offers stunning views of mountains; this is the best place to set up your camp for the day. It is your first day sleeping at a campsite. The excitement of the entire trip begins from this point onwards as you get a step closer to reaching the Pisang Peak summit.

Day 9: Hike to Pisang Peak High Camp (5,400m/17,716ft, 3 to 4 hours) and pre-climbing training

You get closer to the summit on this day as you navigate the Pisang Peak High Camp. You will witness a sudden change in the altitude with over 1000m on this day alone within just a few hours. Commence by taking an ascend and follow narrow paths. The trail gets even more snowy with no traces of greenery around. Before you reach the destination, your camps will have been set by the crew. Once you reach the High Camp, keep your belongings in the camp, get refreshed, then join in for pre-climbing training. 

The climbing guide will demonstrate the proper usage of climbing equipment like Harness, Ice axe, Ascender, Crampons, Karabiner, and others, essential while climbing on the next day. You will also be offered tips and technics from our experienced guide on successful and easy climbing. The guide will teach climbing skills like rappelling and belaying. It is a great confidence booster and skill enhancer before the actual climb. Feel free to ask queries if you have doubts regarding the process. 

After the training, head to your camp and make necessary arrangements for tomorrow as you will have to wake up early in the morning.

Day 10: Pisang Peak Summit (6,091m/19,983ft, 8 to 10 hours) and Descend Back to Base Camp

Pisang Peak Pisang Peak Summit Day

This day is the highlight of your entire trip as you will finally reach the Pisang Peak summit after days of the trek. With enthusiasm and excitement, wake up early in the morning to avoid the unpredictable mountain winds in the daytime. 

The trail begins with a steep climb to a rocky ridgeline. Not much technicality is required during the climb; however, mind each step in the snowy slopes. The climbing guide will have fixed the ropes along the trail where necessary. The peak itself is very steep so, there won’t be much snow. 

You will be overwhelmed as you take your final step at the summit of Pisang Peak. The rewarding feeling is unlike another you have had. After the tough climb, you are graced with majestic views of the Chulu range, Annapurna Range, Damodar peaks, Manaslu, Glacier Dome, and Tilicho Peak. 

It will take a moment for you to grasp the victorious moment fully. After fulfilling your dream of reaching the Pisang Peak summit, take a descend to the Base Camp. Have some hot soup and warm drinks to cope with the cold weather at night. 

Overnight stay at Tented Camp in Pisang Peak Base Camp. 

Day 11: Contingency day

A day has been set aside for any unforeseen events that might happen during the trip. There might be slight shifts in the plan due to unpredictable bad weather in the summit, major injuries, altitude sickness, or other incidents. 

If everything goes as planned, you can effectively use this extra day to traverse to the nearby viewpoints that fall on the route or anytime during the trip afterward.

Overnight stay at Tented Camp in Pisang Peak Base Camp.

Day 12: Trek from Pisang Peak Basecamp to Chame (7 to 8 hours)

Chame Manang Chame Manang

The descend is generally easier than the ascend. Hence, although a long day’s trek, it will be an easier one today. You will pass through the remote Upper Pisang village, then head on to Dharapani village while bidding farewell to the warm locals and beautiful views. From Dharapani hike up to Chame. 

Chame is the first point of lodge service after many camping days. Hence, you can fully utilize a hot shower, internet, and other facilities. 

Overnight stay at Lodge in Chame. 

Day 13: Drive from Chame to Kathmandu

After having breakfast, we will catch a bus to Kathmandu. As you leave the Marsyangdi Valley beside the swiftly flowing river, you will already miss the Himalayan scenery. Pass through rugged, dusty roads on the first part of the ride; then, the road conditions get better eventually. 

Upon reaching Kathmandu, you will be transferred to your hotel. After having refreshment, you can choose to take a rest at your hotel or head out to the evening market of Thamel. Stroll around the market for souvenir shopping. You can even head to a local pub with your newfound friends during the trip and your climbing crew to enjoy your final day in Nepal. End with a farewell dinner. 

Overnight stay at a hotel in Kathmandu. 

Day 14: Final departure from Nepal

The final day of your stay in Nepal has come. In the morning, you will be driven to the Tribhuvan International Airport by our team. We will drop you at the terminal and bid farewell. As you board your flight homewards, you will remember the wonderful time you had in the Annapurna region of Nepal. You are bound to remember the vivid memories of the Pisang Peak Summit and the views of all the surrounding mountains. 

For similar climbing experiences or variant trekking adventures in the Annapurna region, remember Third Rock Adventures again.

Pisang Peak Climbing Difficulty

Pisang Peak Climbing difficulty marks moderate level. Long-hour trek/climb in a remote and isolated area can be challenging for first-timers and novice climbers. Though alpine climbing experiences may be advantageous, it is not a requirement to climb this peak. It entails trekking and climbing to 5,400m and 6,091m, respectively. One should be physically fit and have prior trekking experience, though the climb may not involve technical maneuvers. Besides, our experienced and friendly guide will help you with tips and techniques to climb and proper usage of climbing equipment on pre-climbing training day. If you are physically fit, have high-altitude trekking experience, and are determined to climb your first Himalayan peak, then this is the mountain for you.

Climbing Season

Spring (March to May) and Autumn (mid-September to November) are considered the best seasons to climb Pisang Peak. Novice climbers and elite climbers alike prefer these two seasons to climb Pisang Peak. The weather remains balmy throughout the day and allows for a successful ascent to the top. Climbing during monsoon and winter is not recommended due to poor visibility and unpredictable weather.

Meals

During the Pisang Peak Climbing trip, all meals, including breakfast, lunch, and dinner, will be served to you. You will be staying at a local teahouse in the mountains during trekking. The teahouse offers a wide array of western and local food delicacies. You will stay overnight at a tented camp at a higher altitude (above Pisang Peak Base Camp). Your climbing cook will prepare food for you.

Accommodations

During the Pisang Peak Climbing, you will have three types of accommodations. In Kathmandu, we recommend you to stay at a 3-star hotel - Oasis Kathmandu Hotel or Thamel Boutique Hotel in Thamel. During your trek, you will stay overnight at the best available local teahouses. Teahouses offer basic rooms with twin beds. You can opt for a single room, but it will incur extra cost. During climbing, we offer tent accommodation and assign a single tent to you with foam mattresses.

Gears and Equipment for Pisang Peak Climbing

How to Book Manaslu Trek?

Third Rock Adventures provided all group climbing equipment, such as base camp tents, room accessories, climbing rope, ice screws, snow bar, ice hammer, etc. All the personal climbing gear you can bring your own, or you can buy or rent in Kathmandu.

We have prepared a list of the right equipment and appropriate gear for peak climbing in Nepal. Check the packing list for Peak Climbing Equipment.

Insurance for Climbing

It is imperative for you to possess your travel insurance for Pisang Peak Climbing. Make sure that your travel insurance covers all activities and altitudes included in your itinerary. You will reach a height of 6,019 meters, and your travel insurance should offer you suitable coverage up to this elevation, especially the cost of helicopter evacuation and hospitalization in case of an accident or medical emergency. Check for vaccination requirements as some travel insurance policies makes it mandatory to immunize yourself before you leave your country. Your safety is our utmost priority.

Altitude Sickness

For a successful ascent, you as a climber need to acclimatize while walking at high altitudes. Our Pisang Peak Climbing itinerary is well-crafted by travel experts and veteran guides, entails rest and acclimatization day and pre-climbing training before the final push to the top of Pisang Peak. To prevent Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS), we advise you to keep your body hydrated and abstain from consuming alcoholic beverages and smoke.

Our guides always carry a first-aid kit and pulse oximeter (to measure the oxygen level in your blood) with them. The mountain leaders assigned to you have more than two decades of experience, have led several climbers to the top of Pisang Peak, and are well-trained in wilderness first aid and crisis management. If a client shows AMS symptoms and needs to descend to a lower elevation, an assistant guide will escort him/her and follow the safety protocol. He will closely monitor the client's condition and take the required steps for the client's well-being.

Adventure journey to the top of Pisang Peak
I did Pisang Peak climbing with them. I researched a lot before making my choice with Third Rock Adventures. I mean A LOT! There seems to be a lot of similarities between all the companies but this company stuck out because of its great reputation and attention to safety. They did not disappoint. From our arrival to camp and training to reaching the summit and getting back down the team looked after our group so well. I even ask loads of questions to Nabin before arriving in Nepal and about the area that they were happy to answer and really helped me to prepare. Due to strong stomach cramps, I was in a lot of pain about half way down the climb. The guides(Lakpa and other Sherpas) really helped me in some spots and were so mindful and careful on various parts of this challenging climb. From that talk around base camp, I found out we also had an exceptionally experienced leader in comparison to many other companies. My plan is to get back to Nepal for other mountaineering and I will certainly be in contact with this company. Highly recommended.

To the top of Pisang
I'm writing review for my recent adventure to Pisang Peak. I spent 2 weeks in Nepal and did a lot, really lot. I trekked and climbed the peak, and city tour as well. Everything was great, smooth and exciting. My guide was just fantastic. We had good time and talk. He shared his story as a guide and adventure to the peak for multiple times. Mountains are home to them! The itinerary was just practical as it included pre-climb training and acclimatization day at higher altitude. Every task was smooth and successful. And now I am bragging about the climb to above 6000m.

Climbing Pisang Peak
Lakpa and the lads were a credit to their profession in organising our trip to the Himalayas. Everything was made easy including transport, accommodation and all the relevant permits and paperwork required for climbing Pisang peaks. Even with delays to flights and problems with missing luggage, Lakpa was there to help and provided unconditional support. I cannot recommend Third Rock Adventures enough if you're contemplating organising a trip to Nepal. They make life easy in what can be an intense environment and have excellent relationships with talented sherpas and porters adapted to your requirements. Thanks again Lakpa!

Lotta Experience
Breath-taking view from the summit of Pisang Peak, I almost cried seeing the incredible views. My guide congratulated me for being able to stand atop the peak, although had a bit tough time at the base camp. My guide was really helpful, asked me to rest for few hours and the next day I climbed! The trekking part was great, got to explore the beautiful remote-villages and interact with local people. The places are magical, far away from the city and the modern world. The isolation from the modern world has let this place serene and extremely beautiful. The local food was different and delicious. The people were friendly and like a family member. The tent facility was good, the food cooked was good, as promised and the training was handy. I learned as many as I learned in my entire life. Thanks for this expedition.
Good Value,I like itinerary

I wanted to trek for few days and climb to the top of the peak I could. Naba suggested me this climbing.

Best adventure experience climbing Pisang Peak
This was an amazing experience with Third Rock Adventures going for a trip to Pisang peak climbing. Everything was excellent prepared. Guides were very friendly and experienced. When you climb with the man who has summitted Mt Everest you feel safe. Pisang was not easy but our guides before summit day fixed 600 meters ropes and thanks to that we reach the summit. Very hard work from their side. Thank you very much Naba and Chhewang. Hope that we will see you soon for another adventure trip.

I Summitted the peak!!!
After 2 years of preparation and precise planning, with the help of Third Rock Adventures, I did the climbing; I climbed to the top of peak, above 6000m. I requested them to allow me to customize the itinerary, and they openly accepted it. I wanted to spend a few more days in the mountains, to fully enjoy my time, isolation from my daily life. It was a great time, I had time for myself! Thanks to Third Rock for this great opportunity and service.

Everything was perfectly fine. The cost, the itinerary, and the service was beyond my expectation. My mountainneering pal-and-guide was really great guy. Although he was older than me, he was experienced and not to mention stronger. He would teach me how to tackle the altitude. Also we had good time training. The food was great. Back in Kathmandu, I explored Thamel in my leisure. Loved my time in Nepal!

Did Pisang Peak without any problem
Summited Pisang Peak without any serious issues and all this was made possible by the expert team at Third Rock Adventures. The overall leadership, logistics and services were excellent during the entire trek & climb. The itinerary includes acclimatization treks and rests which really made my trip more convenient. Compared to other companies we had extra rest days and easy days which I feel helped me complete this trip with out any issues. Our climbing guide Lhakpa Sherpa and other supporting Sherpas were nothing short of excellent. They were such good people to guide you all the way to the summit of Pisang peak and back. Wonderful experience, highly recommended trip and the service from this company.

Pisang Peak
During April 2019 I embarked on a trip to Pisang Peak. This trip was one of many mountains I have climbed in the world. I found Third Rock Adventures on web; I have never been with them and trust could be the issue. But once they emailed me and Mr. Naba whatsapp-ed me, we had wonderful talk and I could trust them. We exchanged many emails and they were prompt and extra-attentive to all my questions. The meeting in Kathmandu was great, we had discussion for the climb before we head to Chame. The route to the mountain was implemented to allow for better acclimatization . It was tough at times , but I expected a challenge. Our team of 3 were excellent although I hadn't met any of them before. Finally the Summit ! What an achievement and I was blessed to make it, never a guarantee on any mountain .Thanks to Naba and his team of guides and porters .

Pisang peak climbing
I’ve had an excellent time with Third Rock, the professional behavior before the trip even started helped get all my questions answered and they made sure all applicable paperwork was done in a timely manner. Any changes I had they easily accommodated without hassle. During the trek/climb, I got altitude sickness and they were patient in going slow with me cause I wasn’t moving so well. I enjoyed the accommodations that were set up during the trip and the food was great. Once I became sick they attended to me to make sure I was eating the best possible foods to give me energy and offer rehydration salt mix, pretty much doing whatever they could to get me through the trip and up to the summit of Pisang Peak. My plan is to continue doing climbing trips with this company and only these guys since they were so perfect this past trip. My guide Chhewang Palden Sherpa did everything to make sure you have the best trip. Highly recommended.

Unforgettable expedtion
Two of us climbed Pisang Peak with Third Rock Adventures. Climbing to the top was difficult with many complexities, but our mountaineering guide handled all and it was pleasure doing climb with him. The food, the rooms at tea houses were as expected (please don't expect luxury as tea houses in the mountains offer basic facilities. The toilet may not live to up to your expectation, and you got to forget the toilet facilities you have at your home) and the camping experience at high altitude was amazing. Every one was great, and it was obvious that they have years and years of experience. Everything went smooth, and definitely it was not my expectation. I had rather anticipated that I would be facing problems at times, but they did it great. I must say, the acclimatization day at Upper Pisang helped me alot for the summit push. I recommend them from my heart.

Great Experience
This is the second time I have booked with them and it was an amazing adventure, best adventure, at least for me. From the warm welcome in Kathmandu, the excellent city tour, the exhilarating drive through beautiful Chame and Dharapani and the superb trek itself the whole experience is one to treasure. The culture, scenery, and most of all the friendliness of the Nepalese people is second to none. The accommodation in Kathmandu is excellent, which can be enjoyed at the start and end of your trip. The tea houses on the trek are comfortable and very friendly and there is a good range of available tasty food. The facility at higher altitude in camp are great. The food prepared by the climbing cook is good. They are hard-working staff. And the mountaineering leader with his 2 decades of experience is expert at climbing. I was more than satisfied with his service. He was attentive and caring throughout the climbing at higher altitude. it was great climbing experience. The mountaineering leader has promised me to offer service beyond expectation for my second climbing, either to Mera Peak, and Island Peak, and I think I will be climbing soon.

Climbed Pisang peak with great team
I had a great experience climbing Pisang Peak with Third Rock Adventure's team. Everybody was very profesional and friendly. I felt very safe climbing with the guide Chhewang who already summitted Mt. Everest for several times and who was always very caring for his customers. In the base camp we had lots of food. And the organitzation of the climb from Kathmandu with Naba was exellent. I would totally recomend this company and I will use their services for my mountaineering purpose in future.

Trusted company for Peak Climbing
This is 3rd time that Third Rock Adventures has organized trekking trips and peak climbing for me and all of them have been of a very high standard at very reasonable prices. The personal service provided is first class, communication is quick and efficient with no language barriers and the whole team go out of their way to meet our needs. Our mountaineering leaders (and guides) have always been capable and professional with no major incidents on any of our climbing and treks. They have well-crafted itineraries that I shouldn't be thinking of changing, but nevertheless, they are always ready to customize it as per my need. The Pisang Peak climbing is a great adventure, and you should definitely try it. Not to mention, they do provide you pre-climbing training which is really helpful.
