The room in these tea houses is less stylish with just a bed, a pillow, and a blanket. Accommodations on the way to Pisang Peak are always full, and in some cases, you may need to share a room with other hikers or sleep in the dining room. We strive to make your trek as comfortable as possible.

In some cases, however, it must be kept flexible. We will accommodate groups at the local hostel every day. We dispatched the porters in front of us to reserve the room in advance for the next day.

In Kathmandu, in addition to the 3-star Hotel, there is also some 4-5 star luxury accommodation. If you want to change the luxury accommodation plan, let us know so we can organize and reserve the Hotel for your stay in Kathmandu.

All Food and drinks included in the Pisang Peak Climbing package. We provide Food at tea houses or cabins along the way. You will have dinner and breakfast at the hostel where you will spend the night. During the daily walk, our guide decides the space available and takes a lunch break. We highly recommend that you bring water treatment pills to clean the water and drink during the walk. During the step, there are options to buy bottled water and boiled water.

When we talk about the porter, we provide a porter for two hikers each. Carriers carry 20 kg of total luggage (10 kg for each hiker).

A very experienced and courteous climbing guide will make the expedition trip smooth and easy. All members of the expedition team and the climbing director are carefully selected based on their leadership skills and personal talent. To preserve local communities, we only employ local people who have sufficient knowledge of the Culture, ecosystem, flora, fauna, geography, and history of your local region.

Acclimatization

Pisang peak climbing itinerary is planned with a high profile of Acute Mountain Sickness. Increasing too rapidly at higher altitudes leads to disease that is severe enough to cause death. As much higher altitude, the oxygen levels less in the air. For example, at an altitude of more than 5000 m, there is 50% less oxygen than at sea level. Therefore, our bodies need many days to adapt to an environment with less oxygen. During this trip, a separate day is provided for acclimatization. Visiting Everest base camp and Kalapathar will also help you get used to the altitude before heading out to Pisang Peak Climb.

Physical condition and experience requirements

The Pisang Peak is not technical, but you still need excellent resistance to reach it. Previous knowledge of climbing is not required. However, some experience of using climbing equipment is always an asset. There will also be pre-ascent training at Pisang Peak Base Camp participants. The practice focuses mainly on the use of climbing equipment such as ropes, ice axes, belts, and crampons.

On the summit day, you have to hike 10-12 hours. Therefore, we recommend you prepare yourself by jogging or walking daily for about three months before you travel. Understand that when choosing the Pisang Peak trip, consider hiking many days at high altitude and in remote areas. For your Pisang Peak climbs to be successful, you need to have a lot of willpower, the ability to tolerate adverse weather conditions, and adequate fitness and endurance. Participants with existing diseases such as heart, lung, and blood diseases must consult their doctor before starting their trip. Also, let us know your conditions at the time of booking.

Travel insurance

Travel insurance for every itinerary of our company is a prerequisite for booking a vacation. You must have at least emergency and repatriation insurance, which must include the cost of mountain rescue. Please read the general terms and conditions of your insurers carefully. In particular, you should make sure that the following is covered: 1) Activity (i.e., tourism, trekking or mountaineering) 2) Maximum altitude that can be reached on the trek 3) Helicopter evacuation in an emergency. You should understand that you are ultimately responsible for all costs associated with removal and return procedures and that it is your responsibility to bear the costs of evacuations or medical treatment. You should be fully aware of the effects of organizing your travel insurance and understand the limitations and exclusions of your policy. Please note that in certain circumstances, our company guide may initiate helicopter rescue in medical emergencies without first asking your insurance company for approval.

    Couple Traveller

    Pisang Peak Climbing

    We were two people from Germany who climbed Pisang Peak with the help of Nepal Tour & Trekking Service P. Ltd. The climate and surroundings were very good. The climb to the top was difficult with many loose rocks, but it was amazing. Our trekking guide, climbing guide, and other team members were also very helpful, energetic, and friendly. The food they prepared was fantastic. We plan to climb another similar summit next year. We will certainly choose this agency and recommend it to everyone for the best service and a successful trip.
