Annapurna Trail from Besisahar to Jomsom across Thorung Là m. 5416

These images relate the famous and very satisfactory Annapurna Trail from Besisahar mt. 823 in Marysandi Valley to Jomosom mt. 2760 in Kali Gandaki Valley, a fine trek leading across the Thorung Là, a pass at 5416 m., one of the highest point in the world where a well skilled hiker can rise without climbing neither scrambling. This trek-permit allows also the ascent of some peaks situated along the trail - as Pisang Peak and Chulu Peaks - without paying an additional fee.

The cross trail requests a minimum of 10 days trail – you must forecast 13 days if you want to spend at least two or three resting days - without planning any peak's ascent.
Notwithstanding a very severe train during the previous spring and summer, we were not able to climb Pisang Peak, a 6094 meters high steep mountain situated over the homonymous small village, because of the weather’s condition. The fortune didn’t help us, so our ascent to Pisang Peak stopped at about 5800 mt., at the late mountain’s shoulder .
