So this will be your next adventure into hidden pockets of Himalaya where walk leads you around Upper Mustang after reaching at Jomsom town with scenic flight from Pokhara.

Jomsom administrative town of Mustang district located North Mid West Nepal Himalaya on an ancient Trans-Himalaya Salt / Caravan Route of Nepal to Tibet through Upper Mustang and beyond Karo-la pass.

From Jomsom heading into picturesque country within wide and large terrain with eroded high cliffs and canyon of red-brown and grey colors as the walk enters Chele-Tsusang and Tsarang villages encountering many prayer wheels and stone walls of great interest.

On walk explore its old monasteries of both ancient Bon and Buddhist religion and crossing few high passes with views of Dhaulagiri and Mustang Himal to enter into a walled former kingdom at Lo Manthang.

With time at Lo Manthang visiting its traditional and cultural villages and monasteries then heading towards absolute wilderness to reach our main destination within Damodar Himal area for the climb of Saribung Peak.

Walking into one of most remote and isolated areas of Himalayan away from human settlement and villages leading at holy Damodar kund (pond) facing breath taking views of surrounding peaks and then towards a high pass of Saribung for the climb.

Climb is undertaken with much preparation and rest days for acclimatization, where the peak grade is of PD + ‘Per Difficule’ as per French / Swiss Alpine Climbing Classification.
