Pisang 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.

    It is not easy. I was 17. We started off at about 3am with 22 in the first ascent team. By the time we reached the summit after an endless slog up the snow white cone, we were down to 13.
