Pisang and Chulu East Peak Climbing - 27 days

Not only is Pisang village known for its yak pastures, but it is also home to Pisang Peak.Pisang Peak is the most popular trekking peak among all trekking peaks in the Annapurna Region of Nepal. It is on the way to the highest pass of the world and offers good scope for exploration. Pisang Peak is also a non-expedition peaks in Nepal that rises opposite of Annapurna II (7937). Pisang Peak lays roughly in between the giants’ Annapurna I and Manaslu—which are eight thousand’smeters mountains. Trekkers with little experience in climbing can combine the popular classic Annapurna circuit trek with Pisang Peak Climbing.  In 1955 the German expedition made the first ascent to Pisang Peak. This trek departs from Kathmandu to Besisahar and starts trekking to Annapurna circuit trails, which typically takes 5 days to reach Pisang Base Camp after the summit. After summiting the Pisang peak you will trek to theChulu East base camp to climb Chulu east Peak.

Located on the southern slopes of Manaslu and Annapurna ranges, Chulu East is a classic and rewarding trekking peak in Nepal. It was first ascended in 1955 by a German expedition via the northeast ridge. The ethnic group inhabiting these areas is Gurungs, Magars, Chhetris, Manang, Thakali and the Newars. Chulu East is a difficult climb for beginners. Climbers must be familiar with the use of climbing activities like crampons, harness ice axe, tying knots and handling climbing ropes. After Chulu we make our way up to Throng La Pass at over 5000m; then down into the spectacular Muktinath, another part of the Annapurna Region.

Satori adventures provides you with great opportunities to climb two peaks at one time. After reaching Pisang summit, you can climb Chulu East Peak.  Even though these peaks can be climbed throughout the entire year, the most suitable times to climb are autumn and spring. In order to make your journey more comfortable, you will need to take climbing gear and equipment such as Ice Axe, Crampons, standard Carabineers, trekking poles, ropes etc.

How to Book?

How to book holiday trip in Nepal?

Satori Adventures and Expedition aims at giving proper information to many travelers, trekkers and climbers who have some confusion regarding the booking process of the trip in Nepal.  Satori Adventures therefore desires to provide guideline for the first-time visitors or travelers so that they can comfortably start the process to book the selected package legally. Before starting the booking process we always advise our trekkers, travelers and climbers to intelligently check whether the company is genuine and whether they are fully safe to travel in the company’s guidance. We ask them to be acquainted with the company they want book their holiday trip with. Is the company genuine and authorized from Government of Nepal, Office of the Company Registrar, Department of Tourism and Civil Aviation, Nepal Rastra Bank ‒Central Bank of Nepal (authorized for foreign currency), Permanent Account Number (PAN), and the Department of Cottage & Small Industries).  Are they financially secured and environmentally conscious? We advise them to make sure about these formalities because there are some companies in Nepal that have been running business without abiding by the rules and regulation of the Government. Some companies were once registered but by now their licenses have already been expired and yet they have providing the services illegally.

On many occasions, Government of Nepal and Trekking Agency Association of Nepal have found that many foreigners’ tour operators, NGOs and INGOs have been involved in directly operating tours, trekking, and mountaineering holiday adventures without having government license and abiding by the Government rules. It has been also found that many individuals, freelance guides and porters have been arranging trips illegally by creating their own personal website. We have observed that many trekkers and climbers face a host of problems once they arrive in Kathmandu as they lack adequate information.  Many of them file complaints to Government of Nepal and Trekking Agency Association of Nepal for legal action such as the refund of the advanced payment. There is hardly any justice given to the cheated clients. Thus, so as to prevent all these probable problems we request our travelers to check the company before booking any trip to the Himalayas.

To conform and process your trip booking please follow these suggestions:

Please kindly submit Trip Booking Form when you confirm the trip with us. It will be easy for us to process for your trip conformation and prepare all legal processes and permit for the trip. If you have any query, always feel free to contact us at any time.  We always want to make sure our clients are well informed before conforming the trip. You are always advised to visit our website and related package for further information.
