This is one of the classic and most rewarding treks in Nepal. The
Southern slopes of Manaslu and, Annapurna ranges are heavily sett l ed
and farmed except the higher regions that support thick forests of
Rhododendron and fir. Most of the tribes inhabiting this area are
Gurungs, Magars, Chhettris and Newars. Thakali and Mustang tribes
control the busy trading and pilgrimage trail along the Kali Gandaki.
One of the most striking significance of this trek is that we have a
spectacular view of most mountains range every day.
On this trek before reaching Mustang area one can see the changes in
landscape and plants. After crossing a beautiful Pass popularly known
as Thorang La pass (5416 m.) a trekker enters in to Mustang region
from where the ranges of Dhaulagiri mountain is visible.
About the Pisang peak: Seen from Pisang the peak rises from yak
pastures above the village in a uniform slope to the final summit
pyramid which is an undistinguished snow and ice slope. Looked at from
above Ongre the peak is a little more interesting and can be seen as
curved ridge, with the face above Pisang being the truncated southern
end of the mountain. This is made up of steeply tilted rock, the dip
slope of which faces the valley and is well seen in this peak and the
great rock slabs further down the valley.
The peak obviously has a lot of scope for exploration and pioneering.
The whole of the western flank, which is guarded by a hanging glacier
would appear to offer a considerable challenge, whilst a traverse of
the whole summit ridge which connects to a more northern summit before
curving back west looks a superb possibility. Access to the western
end of the ridge, however, looks problematical as the ridge is guarded
by huge rock slabs, a feature on this side of the valley.
