PRLog - Oct. 22, 2012 - ASPEN, Colo. -- Adventure-seekers can look no further. One World Trekking has the cure for your wanderlust. There are not many recently-opened and little-traveled regions remaining in the Himalayas, but the remote Damodar Himal in northwestern Nepal is certainly among them. From September 8 to October 2, 2013, One World Trekking’s new Saribung La Trekking Expedition Trek will be run as a true Himalayan exploratory journey. During this challenging itinerary, the One World Trekking group will attempt to complete a unique traverse and remote route on the off-the-beaten paths of the Upper Mustang and Damodar Himal located a stone’s throw from the border of China (Tibet). The trails here are rugged, cutting high into cliffsides and passing through small Buddhist villages that have changed little over the centuries.
Saribung La Pass Exploratory Trek
In order to allow for as much acclimatization as possible before crossing the 18,000-foot Saribung La Pass, One World Trekking we will run this exciting new itinerary as a research trek in a clockwise direction beginning the trek from the culturally-rich Buddhist region of Upper Mustang, around the Annapurna Mountains and descend through the remote, Tibetan NarPhu Valley before ending in the village of Syange along the Annapurna Circuit trail. The crossing of the Saribung La Pass is not a technical endeavor but, taken as a whole, this trek offers the adventuous soul the opportinity to cross many high mountains passes often covered with snow and spending many consecutive days trekking and camping in remote valleys situated between the isloated Damodar Kunda and NarPhu Valley regions.
The diversity in scenery, interaction with locals, ability to immerse ourselves in pure Tibetan culture and opportunity to walk where few previously have, will surely make this a truly incredible Himalayan walking experience. Run as an exploratory trek, the first One World Trekking group will literally be writing the itinerary as they go!
