Saribung Peak

Saribung Peak situates in the Damodar Himalayan range in the western part of Nepal close to the Nepal Tibet border in a corner of the upper Mustang region. Nepal government has opened this peak for climbing expeditions only in 2006. Wongchhu Peak Promtion has designed  this Saribung Expedition including the exploration of the restricted region of upper Mustang, the walled city of Lomanthang and the Nar Phu valleys – both of them are well-known, inspiring destinations for trekkers.

This is the long version to climbing Saribung with trekking in the hidden valley of Naar and Phu. The Saribung in Upper Mustang is a true climbing peak adventure. The peak is located in the remote and desolate region of Upper Mustang. Up to Lo Manthang you will have a relatively easy hike with nice and comfortable teahouses along the trail. After a visit of the inspiring capital you will head for the lonesome aribung. The peak is challenging peak, but not too technical. The challenge for Saribung lies in the remote and barren landscape of the beautiful Upper Mustang.
