Pisang Peak, standing at an elevation of 6091m is a cone-shaped trekking peak in the western part of Nepal. Rising above the upper Pisang village and yak pastures in a constant slope of ice and snow to the final summit pyramid, it is one of the busiest peaks in the whole Annapurna region. Pisang Peak approximately lies in between the giants’ Annapurna I (8091m) and Manaslu (8163m). This package encompasses trekking in the glorious Annapurna region and ultimately summiting the marvelous Pisang Peak. 

Climbing Pisang Peak is slightly easy in comparision to other peaks of the region. Any passionate peak climber with a good physical condition and proper knowledge of using climbing gears can easily scale the peak. Thus this peak is suitable for both novice climbers and experienced climbers. The joy and pleasure of reaching to summit of the peak is simply overwhelming and cant just be described in words. To add to it, the view of Annapurna ranges, Mt. Dhaulagiri and other surrounding peaks as seen from the summit is purely superlative.

The trail to the Pisang Base Camp is equally mesmerising as the trek starts from the small hill town of Besisahar. From here, we basically follow the main trail of Annapurna circuit. En route to the base camp, we will be crossing the rivers, walking past the rocky trails and exploring the culturally loaded villages. After the successful climbing of Pisang Peak, we will ascend downhill to the mystical valley of Manang. Crossing Thorung La Pass (5416m) and exploring the sacred temple of Muktinath are the major highlights of the trek. The long yet wondeful trip ends with a scenic flight from Jomsom to Pokhara, followed by a drive back to Kathmandu.

4. Altitude Sickness

Altitude sickness, also known as Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS), is a pathological effect of high altitude on humans, caused by acute exposure to low partial pressure of oxygen at high altitude. It commonly occurs above 3000 meters. It presents as a collection of nonspecific symptoms, acquired at high altitude or in low air pressure, resembling a case of "flu, carbon monoxide poisoning, or a hangover". However, most people can ascend to 3000 meters without difficulty.

Primary Symptoms of Altitude Sickness:

  • Lack of appetite, nausea, or vomiting
  • Fatigue or weakness
  • Dizziness or lightheadedness
  • Swelling of hands, feet, and face
  • Insomnia
  • Shortness of breath upon exertion
  • Nosebleed
  • Persistent rapid pulse
  • Drowsiness
  • General malaise

Prevention:

Ascending slowly is the best way to avoid altitude sickness. Avoiding strenuous activity such as skiing, hiking, etc. in the first 24 hours at high altitude reduces the symptoms of AMS. Alcohol and sleeping pills are respiratory depressants, and thus slow down the acclimatization process and should be avoided. Alcohol also tends to cause dehydration and exacerbates AMS. Thus, Marvel Adventure strictly suggests avoiding alcohol consumption in the first 24–48 hours at a higher altitude.

Guides and porters from Marvel Adventure are very much familiar with this problem due to their experience. All of them are trained with basic medical trainings and hence they definitely can help you.
