This Pisang Peak Trek is one of the classic and most rewarding treks in Nepal. The Southern slopes of Manaslu and, Annapurna ranges are heavily settled and farmed except the higher regions that support thick forests of Rhododendron and fir. Most of the tribes inhabiting this area are Gurungs, Magars, Chhettris and Newars. Thakali and Mustang tribes control the busy trading and pilgrimage trail along the Kali Gandaki. One of the most striking significance of this trek is that we have a spectacular view of most mountains range every day.
On this Pisang Peak Trek before reaching Mustang area one can see the changes in landscape and plants. After crossing a beautiful Pass popularly known as Thorang La pass (5416 m.) a trekker enters in to Mustang region from where the ranges of Dhaulagiri mountain is visible.
About the Pisang peak:- Seen from Pisang the peak rises from yak pastures above the village in a uniform slope to the final summit pyramid which is an undistinguished snow and ice slope. Looked at from above Ongre the peak is a little more interesting and can be seen as curved ridge, with the face above Pisang being the truncated southern end of the mountain. This is made up of steeply tilted rock, the dip slope of which faces the valley and is well seen in this peak and the great rock slabs further down the valley.
The Pisang Peak Trek obviously has a lot of scope for exploration and pioneering. The whole of the western flank, which is guarded by a hanging glacier, would appear to offer a considerable challenge, whilst a traverse of the whole summit ridge which connects to a more northern summit before curving back west looks a superb possibility. Access to the western end of the ridge, however, looks problematical as the ridge is guarded by huge rock slabs, a feature on this side of the valley.
