Mt. Saribung (6,346m) lies very close to the Tibetan border in a remote part of the Mustang district. The trek starts from Mustang’s District Headquarters Jomsom which is a 23 minute flight from Pokhara. From Jomsom you will follow the trail to upper Mustang and finally reach the base camp of Mt.Saribung.
Technically, this peak is not very difficult to climb but physical fitness of climbers is important, as there are some high ice passes. On returning from the summit of Mt. Saribung you will continue trekking to Nar Phu, make your way to Besisahar and finally come back to Kathmandu.
After your arrival in Kathmandu our representatives at the airport will transfer you to your hotel and help you in checking in.
Kathmandu is where we spend the day, strolling across the city streets and collecting the last pieces of equipments that our trek requires.
Today we drive to Pokhara, a seven hour ride or take a flight (optional at additional charge). As we reach Pokhara late in the afternoon we get to stroll around the lake city on foot or on a hired bicycle.
An early morning flight from Pokhara takes us to the airstrip in Jomsom. From Jomsom we head north to the village of Kagbeni where we camp over night.
A 7 hrs trek from Kagbeni takes us to Chaile through a trail with many ups and downs and steep climbs.
Today, we trek to the ancient settlement of Gelling passing through painted Chhortens, Mani walls and alpine meadows.
Today, an early morning start after breakfast takes us to the villages of Ghami and Tsrang, past the old Royal palace and Tsarang Gompa before we stop in Chharang.
