Saribung expedition – 6000 meter peak climbing in Nepal with hike to restricted region of upper Mustang and Nar Phu valleys.
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. Mountain Monarch 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.
Saribung Expedition routes in upper Mustang region
We follow the upper Mustang trek route to Lomantang in our expedition to Saribung peak climbing and visit the fascinating Lury Gompa before heading off into the wilds of Namta Khola valley. After the successful Saribung climbing, we trek out through the Nar and Phu valleys. The trails are rugged and exciting – cutting high into cliff sides and passing through villages that have changed little over the centuries.
The Saribung expedition itinerary enables you to view fantastic and unusual scenery, sample diverse cultures and religions and experience wide topographical variation. The Saribung peak climbing is a relatively easy one for experienced mountaineers but it is physically demanding with the crossing of high passes like Saribung La at over 5600 m and Kang La at over 5200 meter are challenging.
