Saribung is one of Nepal’s highest passes, which provides spectacular views of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri massifs, as well as close-up views of different Himalayan ranges in the Mustang region. Saribung Trek includes breathtaking scenery and the unique culture of the remotest parts of western Nepal as well as stunning views from the top of the pass.
