Saribung Peak Expedition

Duration: 28 Days   |   PhotosDownload

We organize the Saribung peak expedition with full services that start in Jomsom and continues to Saribung peak via Upper Mustang (Lo-Manthang) and Lauri Gompa.

Saribung Expedition is a high demanding trip from Lo- Manthang through a very remote region to the ancient Kingdom of Upper Mustang near the Tibet border. After leaving the Jomsom we walk to the isolated land of Luri Gompa then from there walk up the Damodar Kunda Base camp. At the end head of this beautiful base camp, we cross the rarely trekked Saribung La pass (6,042m) to enter Phu village.  

Upper Mustang is arid and dry with colorful rock formations containing many cave dwellings high up in the cliffs. The first trekking parties were allowed into Upper Mustang in 1992 and it is one of the few places left where one can see undisturbed Tibetan culture.

Our itinerary has been carefully designed for gradual acclimatization to high altitude in order to maximize your chances of safely crossing Saribung La pass and making an ascent of Saribung peak. Acclimatization works much better by starting from Jomsom side and before our approach to Saribung we trek up to Damodar Kunda Base Camp. This trail is rarely visited by other trekkers and is a beautiful valley that is rarely visited with blue sheep often seen grazing near Base Camp.

Saribung Peak would be a suitable expedition if you have trekked to high altitude on previous trips and have basic mountaineering skills including the use of ice axe and crampons. If you are interested in joining our group and would like to check whether this trip is a suitable expedition for you please send in your pre-trip application through our website and we will reply with feedback and any further training required
