How Difficult is Pisang Peak Climbing

Previous high altitude trekking or climbing will make it easier to summit Pisang Peak. However, our Sherpa and guide professionals will always be there to escort and provide expert guidelines on climbing. Our professional will also prepare you to use the climbing gears before summiting the peak. An excellent physical condition with passion and a positive attitude will help you to succeed the climbing.

Before climbing, we recommend you to have some physical training for 2 to 3 months to enhance your stamina. It also helps you to walk ups and down easily with a weighted backpack at high altitudes. If you have not done any exercise before, then you have to train yourself a bit harder.

Best Season to Summit Pisang Peak

Visiting Pisang Peak is suitable any time of the year, but the best time will be the spring and autumn season. Out of four-season tourists prefer spring and autumn because it’s the best time to see the beautiful mountains and enjoy the crystal clear sky.

Spring and autumn are peak seasons in Nepal. These are the season when nature starts to add its color with blooming wildflowers, greenery everywhere, dazzling mountain peaks, thundering waterfalls, and smooth air. There will be less chance of bad weather and a foggy sky. But some adventure seekers love to travel in the winter seasons. These tourists are fond of full adventure, and the trails will also be quiet as fewer tourists will visit during this season.

Monsoon is not so favorable for trekking as there will be a few obstacles that might face during this time. Because of rainfall, the trail will be slippery, and your trip will be thrilling and challenging. Yet, these are the times when the paths are less crowded, so it is excellent for adventure and peace lovers.
