Best Time for Saribung Expedition
The Spring and Autumn seasons are good for speeding up Saribung Peak. During the Autumn season, the weather, scenery, and celerity is gorgeous. The bright peaks, colorful Himalayan rice, friendly and smiling Tibetan Buddhists, and yak caravans around the village are very interesting.
Due to the altitude, climate and remoteness of this area, it requires more training and preparation than other mountain peaks in Nepal. It most often straddled dry, rugged terrain and glacial motion modes, complete with climbing equipment. Required to set up a tall camping tent for mountaineering. From the summit of Saribung, you can cover parts of Peri Himal and Himlung Himal, parts of Mt. Tibet, and the arid landscape of the Kingdom of Mustang. After climbing the summit, you will enter another hidden valley called Nar Phu. A completely secret valley with ancient monasteries, colorful stupas and barley fields.
