max Climbing Altitude:
6 (moderate to challenging)
Saribung Peak is located in the Upper Mustang massif, alongside the Annapurna Conservation Area in Damodar Himal. In the foothills of these superb Ranges, flaws Kali Gandaki River which springs from Nhubine Glacier near to Tibet-Nepal borders. The Saribung Peak is only recently open to the trekkers and climbers and is included in the restricted areas of Annapurna-Mustang Trails.

The Saribung Peak trail has been entered in the trails’ maps of the country only recently, thus it still remains quite unexplored and very attractive to the experienced climbers. The point of entry can be Kagbeni village in Upper Mustang region -clockwise- following the Lo Montang Pass, heading from the Namta Khola Valley and descending in Nar Phu and ends in Besisahar or -anticlockwise- starting from Besisahar (Lamjung District) and heading to Kagbeni and Jomsom.

The Saribung Peak climbing has some difficulties, including the high altitude. The trail is harsh and the slope sides of the mountain are steep and slippery. The trail meets many remote villages and ancient temples.  The panorama is incredible.  One would say that time has left everything untouched.

The Saribung Peak climbing is a challenging trail and demands advanced skills to overcome but in nowadays, it is one of the few unspoiled and less explored ones.

Will you miss the opportunity to be one of the few pioneers who steps on it?
