  • Saribung Pass is the fusion of rugged, ancient culture, cutting high into cliffsides and passing through Buddhist villages which are still untouched for ages. The trail will traverse you through Saribung Pass from where you can savor the majestic views of mountains like Annapurna II, Dhaulagiri, Cheo, Peri, Himlung, Ratnachuli, and many more.

  • You may have to go through many high passes with ice and ridges which makes this trek even extra challenging. If you are not a skilled trekker or are walking single a guide is a good idea.

An average level of physical fitness will make the journey less stressful. Start doing exercise at least a month before trekking in the Himalayas.

  • If you are healthy and willing to go on an adventure then there is no limit. There are children as young as 12 years who do Saribung Pass. If you are traveling with the kids, then we suggest that families schedule a private trek and put in extra days.

  • The routes are quite harsh compared to other trekking regions. But, this trek is suitable for both beginners as well as experienced trekkers. The routes can be more challenging and overwhelming for new trekkers so be prepared with physical and mental preparation.

However, we advise you to bring simple medicines like Ibuprofen, Codeine, Paracetamol, Strepsils, anti-diarrhea tablets, and Diamox (for altitude sickness). If you are having a package tour then the company will provide you such basic medicines.
