Saribung Peak (6328m) Climbing

Saribung Peak (6328m) is one of the most popular 6000 meter peaks in Nepal.  Saribung Peak (6328m) is the ideal expedition for those wishing to get off the beaten track and ascend a peak and it is located in remote Damodar Himal, close to the border with Tibet. Saribung Peak can be climbed without any special climbing gears as you need to climb other peaks. This is the long version to climbing Saribung with trekking in the hidden valley of Naar and Phu. During your trip to Saribung Peak you’ll see the magnificent views of snow-capped mountains, visit the mysterious Upper Mustang, trekking in the most popular Annapurna Conservation Area, several passes and remote Naar & Phu Valley at the end of the trip. Saribung Peak can be climbed anti-clockwise starting from Besi Sahar too. But considering acclimatization and more scenery during the trip, Trekking Experts offers Saribung Peak Climbing Expedition with clockwise starting from Jomsom.

 

Saribung Peak Climbing Expedition with Trekking Experts begins with scenic flight to Pokhara and then to Jomsom. In the beginning of the trip you’ll trekking mighty Upper Mustang region which is very famous for its unique landscapes, thousands of mysterious manmade caves, century old monasteries, amazing polyandry system and beautiful Lo Manthang. As you further continue your trip towards Saribung Peak, you’ll trek in the remote areas experiencing the wilderness, remoteness and adventure over the passes. You’ll visit Damodar Kunda at an elevation of 4890 meters from sea level. Following off-the beaten trail you’ll cross Saribung Peak (6328m) and trek into off-the-beaten trail to Naar & Phu Valley. You can see nnapurna, Gangapurna and Tilicho peak, Kang Guru, Pisang Peak etc during the trek and many other peaks. Only few tour operators in Nepal can successfully run this peak climbing as your trekking crew (guide, cook and porters) should be strong and experienced.
