Saribung Peak climbing which reaches the maximum altitude of 6387 m is a wholesome mountain experience with the incredible view of several snow capped giants in the Himalayas. The climb doesn’t require any pre-mountaineering experience but is physically demanding as you have to climb the steep snowy trails passing through the Saribung La pass at the height of 5600 m. The experience of conquering a summit of the Himalayas is accompanied by the visit to the various magnificent landscapes of the Land beyond the Mountains. The ancient Tibetan culture and the pristine lifestyles of the local communities in the Mustang and Nar Village, arid and rugged lands, turquoise Damodar Kunda and the fine view of Tibetan Plateau are all one of a kind experience.

The flight from Kathmandu takes you Pokhara, and from there to Jomsom, from where the trekking commences. Walking through the picturesque landscapes of arid land of Lo-Manthang we head to the base of Saribung Peak via Saribung La pass near to the Damodar Khunda. After conquering the summit, we descend through Nar Village via Dharapani-Jagat reaching Bulbule to return to Kathmandu. The journey to Saribung Peak incorporates the walk through the steep snowy trails, so ropes shall be fixed in the open and demanding sections. Our Sherpa guides will provide you the necessary mountaineering training on the use of ropes and crampons. You don’t need any of the previous mountaineering experience but physically fit health condition is the prerequisite of this climb.
