Saribung Peak Climbing is truly an off-the-beaten-path excursion, which adds to its new, untamed, allure, and mystique location, where few people go. This journey is newer and more interesting than many others with a climb up to the magnificent Saribung Peak (6346 m) that lies near the Damodar Mountain Range in a remote section of Mustang and a stone's throw from the Tibetan border. 

The part of the Annapurna Conservation Area, Nepal's largest protected area and home to Mt. Dhaulagiri (8167m), the world's seventh highest mountain. Tukuche Peak (6920m), Nilgiri South (6839m), Yakwakang Peak (6462m), and Damodar Himal (6004m) are among the 6000m+ peaks in the area. 

This is considered a challenging expedition that takes you over an otherworldly landscape of sculpted canyons, surreal rock formations, medieval villages, ruined fortresses, Tibetan Buddhist gompas, soaring snow peaks, and distinct Himalayan cultures. Upper Jomsom, the restricted region of Upper Mustang, strikingly beautiful Nar Phu Valley, and the lonely Hidden Valley are all included in one excellent adventure.

In addition, this newly discovered trekking route crosses challenging Saribung Pass (6042 m), which is one of the highest passes in Nepal. The trail to the pass is surely not easy, but the views you will get to see from the top of this pass are truly rewarding. You will be rewarded with breathtaking views of Himlung Himal (7126m), Nilgiri Himal (7061m), Lamjung Himal (6983m), Mt. Manaslu (8163m), and Annapurna II (7937m) from the summit of Saribung Peak.

From Giling the trail climbs gently through fields, up the center of the valley, passing above the settlement of Tama Gun and an imposing chorten. You then begin a taxing climb across the head of the valley to the Nyi La [3840m]. The right trail is the direct route to Charang, the left trail leads to Ghami. Ghami is a large white-washed village sheltered by overhanging cliffs. While Treking from Ghami to Tsarang, much of your energy will be spent negotiating loose, dry soil. However, the magnificent views of the countryside, from the gentle contours of the north to the rugged mountains in the east and west, are a source of inspiration. Finally, you come to Tsarang, a large spread-out village at the top of the Tsarang Chu canyon. At the eastern end of the village are a huge dzong [fortress] and a red gompa which houses an excellent collection of statues and thangkas.
