About Trip

Saribung Pass Trek is challenging, physical demanding and very popular trekking trail with beaten track and difficult pass (6346m). Saribung pass is situated to the north of Mustang region of Damodar Himal, the last frontiers close to the border of China (Tibet).

The trails are rugged, ancient culture merge in a very unique interpretation of lands forgotten by time, cutting high into cliff sides and pass villages that have changed little over the centuries. The trails here are rugged, cutting high into cliffsides and passing through small Buddhist villages that have changed little over the centuries On this stunning traverse from Mustang, we cross numerous high passes including the De Hults Pass (6225m) and emerge to the Annapurna region. In order to allow for as much acclimatization as possible before crossing the 18,000-foot Saribung La Pass, we will run our research trek in a clockwise direction beginning our approach from the culturally-rich Buddhist region of Upper Mustang and descend through the remote NarPhu Valley before joining the Annapurna Circuit trail.

 On this trek Tibetan culture thrives in the small villages and monasteries we pass. It is a must for keen photographers who will appreciate the scale and grandeur of the high plateaus and solitude this region has to offer. Saribung Trek can be done in anti-clockwise for which the trek start from Phu and then ascend to Saribung pass and enter in the Mustang "Hidden Kingdom" and return to Jomsom or clockwise for which the trek start from Jomsom and follow Upper Mustang trail and descend to Nar-Phu valley and end at Besisahar.

For mountaineering, it is easy to do Expedition but there are many passes with ice and creases in between the Damodar Kunda region and Nar-Phu valley.
