Pisang Peak Climbing

Overview

 Pisang Peak Climbing is very famous among the visitor, Pisang 6091m Peak lies on the way to the highest pass of the world, which is very popular peak to client into this region. Pisang Peak ascends above from Pisang village and yak meadow in an unvarying slope of ice and snow to the final summit. Mountaineers with little experience in climbing can combine the popular classic Annapurna circuit trekking with Pisang Peak to have the experience of climbing on Himalayas in Nepal. To reach the base camp from Pisang village, the path ascends through sparse wood and pasture to a Kharka at 4,380 meters (14,366ft) which is regarded as the best place for setting up the base camp. Base camp is at 4200m in a flat alpine section along the well shabby trail. Pisang Peak climbing begins from Besisahar from the Valley of the Marsyangdi River. The path takes you through immensely distinct animals and vegetation and moves towards the magnificent peak of Mt. Manaslu and Lamjung Himal. The most important juncture of the track meets at Dharapani while trekking through Larkya La. The trail from here demands walk to the Pisang Peak. The trek will now take you to a place from where you can seize the view of entire vista of the Annapurna Himalaya Range. The trail then rises up from the Manang valley to reach the top of the Thorong Pass at 5416m. The edge takes you to the final snow slop, which is quite vertical but not difficult to reach the pinnacle. Pisang peak has been started intending for climbing for several mountaineers and adventure seekers.

Best Time to Travel


Autumn Seasons is consider as best time to visit the country. Starts from middle of September to November. You will usually finds clear blue skies and extraordinary mountain views.  

The year is divided into 4 different seasons in Nepal – winter, spring, monsoon and autumn. so another best period to visit the country for plant lovers is during spring from March to May when the flowers are in full bloom. The mountain slopes are covered with beautiful and colorful flowers.  From June the downpour begins. It continues till late August. People can still do the trips into few region. Winter begins from December and continues till late February, it will be bit cold to go into high Himalayan region however you can do the trips into low elevation below 3000m. We can find really clear weather this time of year as well. 

Nepal and its Himalayan range have a typical monsoonal two season a year. There’s the dry season from October to May and the wet season monsoon will starts from June to mid September. And the dry season starts which is best time to visit Nepal and around the Himalaya in many ways then in Monsoon. 

Acclimatization in the height


Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS): Depending upon the zone of trekking, AMS might occur if one does not acclimatize well while trekking in the high Himalayan region. Usually the symptom of AMS can be felt above 3,000 m with thin air, lack of oxygen from low air pressure. The Rapid Ascend, dehydration and Hypothermia are the cause of the symptom. We have rated three different level of the Altitude Sickness:

  1.  AMS – Acute Mountain Sickness: 
    The initial symptoms of Acute Mountain Sickness starts with headache, nausea, shortness of breath, fatigue / tiredness, Loss of appetite, disturbance in sleep which is mild a symptoms that will make like hangover / not feeling well.  You don’t need to worry much this will take time to heal after a good acclamatsation, this can be avoided after slow ascend or resting into the same elevation.
  2. HAPE – High Altitude Pulmonary Edema:
    This second level of the sickness may get water in the lungs with the symptoms of increasing Headache, wish to vomiting or vomiting, diarrhea, Dizziness’, Breathing hard, severe cough (dry or Productive), increasing tiredness/weakness, high pulse, Fatigue while walking, Blueness of the face, Lips, Fingers nails which means inability to circulate the Oxygen into the blood. If these symptoms occur, you shouldn’t ascend higher, take medicine & rest/stay into the same altitude for extra night, if it does not improves, you need to descend into lower elevation.
  3. Hace – High Altitude Cerebral Edema
    The final level is a extreme stage of altitude sickness with the symptoms of worsening headache & Vomiting, mental confusion, swelling hand & face, walking like drunk, irritable, unconsciousness or coma. If these serious symptoms appear, you need to get into the hospital as soon as possible either by heli-copter or by other possible arrangements.

Decision Making: All the decision is made by the victims and by leader or guide for 
evacuation by any means of quick transportation and in helicopter.

  1. Find out the main problem i.e. at altitude. Assume all problems are Altitude Sickness unless proven otherwise. 
  2. If it is an altitude problem with mild symptoms, stay at the same altitude until the symptoms are completely gone. Take an Aspirin tablet, try to go up but listen to your body. If symptoms are worsening, descend into the lower.

Prevention is better than cure. A proper acclimatization before heading higher elevation, not to make Rapid Ascent; not to walk faster and drink plenty of fluid like water.

  • Listen your body & Let them more comfortable & rest more than usual. 
  • Avoid alcohol, Narcotic Drugs, sleeping pills and smoking. 
    Drink more fluid 3-4ltrs a day… clean, boiled or treated water/tea/coffee/soup/juice etc. 
  • Do not carry heavy packs, 10 – 12 Kilograms is ok. 
  • Climb higher sleep lower.
    Above 3000m, a 300m ascent a day if possible and walk with someone.

Treatment: The main healer and treatment is Descent, Descent, Descent, the best way of recovering. However, there are few medicine which maybe helpful when suffering: Oxygen, Diamox (Acetomolide) for AMS 125 mg. Before dinner, for sleeping problem if feeling suffocated, Nafedipine for HAPE, Steroids/Dexamethasone for HACE, Hyperbolic Bag – Gamow Bag

Important: Go up slowly with take your own pace. Do not let your body get cold. Do not leave your team member behind unattended, either trekker or porter. Drink plenty of fluids (at least 3 liters per day). Get all information about Altitude Sickness before your trekking tour that will make you confident to make your tour successful.
