Saribung peak (6328m/20,761ft) is one of the newly popular expedition locations in mid Western Nepal. Saribung Peak lies North east from Lo-Manthang near the Nepal, Tibet boarder at a precise location of 28°53’04’’N/84°10'26''E. This expedition will provide you with a great opportunity to explore the unique Tibetan plateau of the Himalaya and the villages behind Lo-Mangtang mountain. Saribung peak climbing and Upper Mustang trekking was a newly discovered trekking route in 2006. The government of Nepal opened the area which is still considered a restricted area on special terms that visitors can only stay for a short duration of time. It is a challenging and very popular trekking trail now with beaten tracks and demanding passes. Saribung is situated in an isolated part of the Mustang region known as Damodar Himal.
Saribung peak is an easy climb for those who have already summited a 6000m or above peak. The approach to Saribung peak climbing has a few high passes between the Lomangthang- Damodar Kunda. The caravan route begins with a 6 hour drive from Kathmandu to Pokhara, from Pokhara you fly 20 minutes to the Annapurna region and into the village of Jomsom. The trail goes up to Lo-Manthang via Kagbeni, Chele, Charang. After you explore around the Lo-manthang and Luri cave monastery you will continue to visit a region that offers great scenery, culture, religion and geographical variations. During the trekking, trekkers meet different villages, monasteries, cultures and religions of the Tibetan people.

Satori Adventures and Expedition aims at giving proper information to many travelers, trekkers and climbers who have some confusion regarding the booking process of the trip in Nepal.Satori Adventures therefore desires to provide guideline for the first-time visitors or travelers so that they can comfortably start the process to book the selected package legally. Before starting the booking process we always advise our trekkers, travelers and climbers to intelligently check whether the company is genuine and whether they are fully safe to travel in the company’s guidance. We ask them to be acquainted with the company they want book their holiday trip with. Is the company genuine and authorized from Government of Nepal, Office of the Company Registrar, Department of Tourism and Civil Aviation, Nepal Rastra Bank ‒Central Bank of Nepal (authorized for foreign currency), Permanent Account Number (PAN), and the Department of Cottage & Small Industries). Are they financially secured and environmentally conscious? We advise them to make sure about these formalities because there are some companies in Nepal that have been running business without abiding by the rules and regulation of the Government. Some companies were once registered but by now their licenses have already been expired and yet they have providing the services illegally.
On many occasions, Government of Nepal and Trekking Agency Association of Nepal have found that many foreigners’ tour operators, NGOs and INGOs have been involved in directly operating tours, trekking, and mountaineering holiday adventures without having government license and abiding by the Government rules. It has been also found that many individuals, freelance guides and porters have been arranging trips illegally by creating their own personal website. We have observed that many trekkers and climbers face a host of problems once they arrive in Kathmandu as they lack adequate information. Many of them file complaints to Government of Nepal and Trekking Agency Association of Nepal for legal action such as the refund of the advanced payment. There is hardly any justice given to the cheated clients. Thus, so as to prevent all these probable problems we request our travelers to check the company before booking any trip to the Himalayas.
