    Saribung peak is situated in an isolated part of the Mustang region of Damodar Himal, close to the border of Tibet. This Extreme Saribung Trekking and Peak Climbing is newly discovered trekking route in 2006.  Since then this trek has become a very popular trail with off beaten track and demanding high pass, in the Upper Mustang region.

    The trail is rugged, cutting high into cliff sides and passes villages that have changed little over the centuries. Saribung Trek can be done anti-clockwise for which the trek start from Nar-Phu Valley “a hidden valley” and then ascend to Saribung pass and enter in the Upper Mustang " known as little Tibet in Nepal" and down to Jomsom or clockwise for which the trek start from Jomsom and follow Upper Mustang trail and descend to Nar-Phu valley and Besisahar to end.

    For climbing Saribung peak, it is easy to do an expedition but there are many passes with ice and creases in between the Damodar Kunda region and Nar-Phu valley.  Saribang trekking and expedition will start from one region and end another trekking region by enjoying scenery, religions, geographic elevation and will cross the challenging pass near Saribung Peak (6346m). The trekkers and climbers really enjoy its fantastic and pleasing views of the Himalaya and beyond. During the trekking, you will meet different villages, monasteries, culture and religion of Tibetan style every day. The main important thing is the spectacular mountain scenery, which will see from the top of Mt. Saribung. This trek will be for 21 days if we don’t climb Saribung peak.

    We start our journey in Mustang, the legendary kingdom. It lies on the dry north side of the Annapurna massif in a fascinating landscape of deeply carved canyons, beautifully eroded sandstone formations in beautifully glowing pastel colours and mountain plateaus with a view of gleaming-white glaciers. This is the ideal area to acclimatise enjoying all this beauty for the high passes and the top climb during the trek to Phu, another hidden gem in Nepal.

    After 10 days of Mustang, we start the trek to the base camp of the Saribung. We walk through a totally deserted area and cross two 5000+ meter passes. After 16 days of trekking, we are well acclimatized and ready for the top attempt. The ascent of the Saribung runs over a glacier and is technically easy. After the climb, we walk close to the Tibetan border to Phu. The trek continues to the Annapurna trail and ends where we can take the bus back to Kathmandu.
