Saribung Pass Trekking

 

Upper Mustang is quite simply the most gorgeous scenery in Nepal, comparable with the best in the world and is worth every bit of the special permits required. The Saribung 6000m pass section is tricky with many expeditions failing with bad acclimatization planning and/or losing the way, however our crew have been there multiple times now and we know the region better than anyone else. We aim to summit the 6328m/20,750ft peak too.

We start with a full Upper Mustang trek to the fabled city of Lo Manthang then head east over a once elusive high pass to the Nar-Phu valley system, one of those special places that was only relatively recently opened up to trekkers.

Dolpo Rara Trekking

Trekking in Rara Lake offers the best scenery on the north-western most side of Nepal. Within its confines lie the Rara national park, the smallest park in Nepal, where in turn the country's largest lake, the Rara Lake can be found (10.8 sq. km. At 2,990 meters). Considered one of the finest parks in the world, Rara National Park abounds in coniferous forest and is the ideal habitat for the musk deer, Himalayan black bear and other faunae. The Danfe (Impeyan Pheasant) the national bird of Nepal, flies above while a variety of fish, the snow trout, inhabit the Rara lake. Adding charm to the region are its generally open-hearted and friendly people. The trek can begin in Jumla (over an hours flight from Kathmandu) or from the nearer Nepalgunj.

Rara is a good destination point for trekking in the west. The trail is very much "off the beaten path" and affords glimpses of culture and scenery very different from those in the rest of the country. The centerpiece of the park is the biggest lake of Nepal. Along mountain paths and a series of picturesque villages, one reaches the magnificent banks of Rara lake. The park includes Trans- Himalayan valley with high ridges covered with forest and alpine pastures.
