Pisang Peak Climbing (6091m/19,970ft) - 19 days

Climbing Pisang Peak: Set off on a journey of enlightenment in Himalayas

There are more than 414 peaks open for mountaineering in the mighty Himalayas. However, it is Pisang Peak that attracts the highest number of tourists each year. Its height equals 6091 meters (19,970 feet), and it is located in the Annapurna region of Nepal at 26°38’57’'N / 84°11’25''E. Pisang Peak climbing was rated at Peu Difficile which means it is a relatively moderate ascension that requires little belaying. However, the western flank of the mountain has a hanging crevassed glacier offering a more considerable challenge. The first ascent of Pisang Peak was made by a German expedition in 1955. Since then it has quickly become the most popular trekking destination in the Himalayas.

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.
