Join this totally unique Saribung Peak Climbing experience in Nepal’s mysterious Upper Mustang region. The route first passes through the undisturbed land of the former Lo Kingdom. The caves, extraordinary rock formations, and desert-like landscape give this place a mystical vibe. It is truly like no other place on Earth. Some trekkers say they feel as if they have been transported to Mars. From desert caves to snowy peaks to pockets of a green oasis, this journey is quite surreal. Those who live in the area carry out traditional practices of Tibetan Buddhism and live in a way as if isolated from the forces of modernization. The Upper Mustang Saribung Peak Climbing gives us a feeling of peace and joy that fills our hearts and minds.
The highlight of the trek is summiting the breathtaking Saribung Peak Climbing(6346 meters/20,820 feet). As far as climbing expeditions go, it’s relatively easy. From the top, climbers are treated to stunning views of Gyajikang, Himlung, Bhrikuti, and more while Dhaulagiri can be seen on the way up. Head through the “Hidden Valley” of Phu, a place with its own magic, before connecting with the Annapurna Circuit towards the end of the trek.
The Upper Mustang Saribung Peak Climbing route is connected to the Tibetan terrain, just north of the Annapurna massif. The area, which used to be the caravan route to trade with Tibet, was opened to foreigners in 1992. This ‘off-the-beaten-path’ trek begins from Jomsom, which is considered the headquarters of the Mustang region. Heading north through the upper Kali Gandaki River Valley, we find ourselves in Kagbeni. After crossing various villages, we reach Lo-Monthang, the capital of Upper Mustang. Within the long stone walls, ancient monasteries and elegant palaces are preserved. Trekkers will find stupas, mani walls, Chortens, and other monuments to Tibetan Buddhism. This Upper Mustang trek and Saribung Peak climbing combination are unlike any other in the world, so come check it out!
Upper Mustang is a restricted area, meaning that you need a special permit, as well as a licensed guide to enter. The cost is $500 for the first 10 days and $50/day after that. The cost is included in the price of the package.
Saribung Peak Climbing is possible throughout the year, but Spring (March to May) and Autumn (September to November) provide the best weather. During the Spring, there is a bit more color along the trail, and in the Autumn months, the skies are generally clearer. Winter months are much colder and bring danger to the climb. The Upper Mustang Saribung Peak Climbing requires moderate fitness and acclimatization to avoid acute mountain sickness. Breeze Adventure arranges the climb with complete management.
