Saribung Trek and Expedition

Overview

Damodar Saribung is to the north east of Mustang region, where the rugged landscapes and ancient customs come together and are hardly ever visited by westerners. The trek starts from Jomsom and heads into Mustang towards the Damodar Saribung traverse crossing several high passes including the Saribung La 5600m. Eventually after some high altitude camping the trail drops down into Phu. From here there are various options for the latter stages of the trek.
