Thanks to Frank Verwijs for adding this peak.
Pisang Peak is one of the non-expedition peaks in Nepal;( permit 1998: 300$). Pisang Peak has less precipitation than the mountains south of the peak; in fact: the valleys to the north of the peak look very similar to those in Tibet. The mountain rises oposite of Annapurna 2 (7937), which rises 5000 meters of the Langtang valley floor. Pisang Peak lies roughly in between the giants Annapurna 1 and Manaslu; both eight-thousanders.
In November 1994 have eleven members of a german expedition been killed, by an avalanche of snow and ice.
