Saribung Peak 6346m is one of the newly opened climbing Peaks, which lies in the remote Damodar Himal Range close to sacred Damodar Kunda bordering Tibet. Trekkers or climbers willing to experience the alpine challenge, which is more than the elevated trek and stretches on the off the beaten trials can undertake this climbing Expedition.

Climbing this peak is not at all a technical challenge; however, the extreme altitude variation and wilderness makes this climbing tough enough for the climbers who have a little bit know-how of climbing knowledge. Since many trekkers or climbers have not conquered the peak, the expedition of this climbing peak is based on Full Board Basis but the initial part of this adventure that goes to the forbidden kingdom of Mustang are all based on teahouse treks.
