Accommodations and Meals for Pisang Peak Climbing

Pisang Peak Climbing located on the northern border of Manang valley which happens to be a pristine and remote location away from the touch of modernization. As a result, the accommodations found in the trekking trail of this tour are pretty basic except in some places like Jomsom and Muktinath. There are generally basic lodges and teahouses hosted by the locals in the region. The meals generally include a Dal-Bhat set. In some places there are no lodges, so trekkers have to set or establish camp (pretty safe and sound)  for the night stay as the altitude increases.
