About Trip

SaribungPeak Climbing traverses paths less trodden by outsiders;rugged topography and small ethnic villages through outstanding landscapes forming a photographer’s paradise. North of Mustang, Saribung(6343m) lies in Damodar, the last frontier from Tibet. Numerous high points during the journey, including the SaribungPass(6042m) challenge they mighty. Ancient culture and lifestyle that has thrived in these highlands gives a different meaning to the trek.

Saribung’s solitary location is attributed by the rugged plateaus and great views. Following the Upper Mustang Trekking route upto Lo Manthang, the route then turns on to NamtaKhola Valley. This wild area has no settlements, so we have to camp to Saribung and back until we reach Koto. After spending a day for acclimatization in the base camp, we head on to the high camp and then climb the Saribung peak. The trek to Saribung is considered challenging, due to the remote location and altitudinal variances. The peak climbing is considered technically easy, but at sections in the ascent, ropes and jumar is used for safety.Views of Tibetan mountains including the Peri, Himlung et cetera are magnificent from the least scaled summit. The return route passes through Koto and Dharapani to BesiShahar where we take a bus to Kathmandu.

Stunning views of the Annapurna & Dhaulagiri ranges provides inspiration to strenuous walks during the trek. Passes such as SaribungPass(6042m) and remote valleys in the trek are a rarity, so is the Tibetan culture thriving in this left out settlement.
