Is Saribung Peak Climb Right For You?

  • The weather conditions in the mountain region can be unpredictable. It can affect the itinerary in terms of the number of days. Customer safety is our top priority, so the Saribung peak climbing package may lengthen in harsh weather conditions. So make sure you plan the time of the year carefully. The scenery and conditions may vary depending on the season you choose to go on this expedition.
  • For about a week, you will have to walk continuously for 5 to 7 hours per day, excluding the climb. So it is a must that you prepare yourself physically and mentally for taking on the mountain’s challenge. Engage in exercises to increase your stamina and strength before you come to Nepal for this climb. Also, it will be advantageous if you engage yourself in climbing exercises prior to this expedition.
  • Saribung Peak stands at 6328 meters / 20,761 feet. This climb is technically easy, but it will challenge your stamina, endurance, and strength. The adventure may be tasking for those with low fitness levels or no previous summiting experience. So make sure to improve your stamina and strength. We recommend that you engage in climbing exercises as well.
  • The trekking lodges or tea houses that you stay throughout the trekking period are very simple, with only the necessary facilities. Access to electricity for charging electronic devices will cost you extra. Wi-Fi is available at a few locations, but connections may be weak.
  • This journey includes 16 overnight stays over the height of 3000 meters. The thinning air pressure may increase the risk of developing AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness). You may experience shortness of breath and mild headaches during your stay and on the trail. Your guide will make sure to lead you at your natural pace. Walk slowly to let your body adjust to the thinning air.
  • Our guides and Sherpas are well-trained and experienced in handling emergencies. They also carry first aid, including some emergency medicines, to help you in time of difficulty. In extreme cases where you need emergency evacuation from any spot of the trail, we will rescue you via helicopter.
  • We recommend that you keep yourself active and fit to decrease the risk of fatality. Make sure that you are physically fit and mentally prepared for the climb before booking the trip. If you are unsure about your conditions, you should seek medical advice.
