Crossing the Mustang to Phu is an incredible trip, one of the most beautiful treks in Nepal. today it stands out as a classic route. Its difficulty remains reasonable for a glacial course despite crossing a pass at 6042m and the optional ascent of Saribung Peak at 6328 m. mustang to phu is graded between a trek and a climbing expedition. The logistics are similar to do a trek, its organisation that of an expedition. Technically its a pleasant, easy walk, despite the glacial terrain. On the other hand, the cold and the high altitude, including a 6042m pass to cross, make the planning for more complex. The ascent of Saribung is easy. the effort required is relatively little, around 300m. UIAA Classification is level F in snow. Normally there is no risk of avalanche if you stay in the middle of the valley and avoid the steeper slopes on the left. The col is very with saribung(6328m) on one side and the two small summit of Sonam Himal and Karsang peak(6225m) on the other.
Mustang-phu is one of the most beautiful glacial traverses in Nepal. Its aesthetics and the fact that is not too difficult mean that it has become more and more popular over the last few years. the first traverse from Lo manthang to phu was done in autumn 2007 by a french group and Nepali staff Paulo Grobel team, Under the leadership of UIAGM mountain guide Paulo Grobel.
Sacred Lakes Damodar kund, The Damodar lakes are situated at around 4890m, above the bed of the Namta khola. there are several glacial lakes-Brahmakunda, Rudrakunda, Anantakunda, Damodarkunda,-whose outflows from the Damodari Ganga (another name of the Dhechyang khola). Damodar kunda is the largest of them.
Above the lake is a chorten endowed with numerous prayer flags. Buddhists venerate Avalokiteshvara/Chenresig here, one of the most important deities of Tibetan Buddhism. Note that the historic Buddha sakyamuni is considered by Hindu to be the ninth avatar of Vishnu. This is a very important pilgrimage side for hundu, who consider it to be one of the most spiritual place in the world. There are many religious texts describing this sacred lake. most notably the Puranas, hindu texts written between 400-1000AD. in the Barah Purana, Lard Krishna affirms that everyone who come on a pilgrimage to the Damodar lakes and takes a bath will be absolved of all their sins. It is also mentioned that the sons of Kuber, king of the Yakshas, the God of riches in the Hindu pantheon, suffered because of sins committed in a previous incarnation. Krishna suggested that they take a bath in this lake, and they were purified of all their sins.
The banks of the lake are strewn with rubbish left behind by pilgrims who have come here to venerate Vishnu. Numerous pilgrims come here for the August Full moon. A shelter has been built to accommodate them. A small temple with a metal roof contains a statue of Vishnu and several offerings.

In the Lama’s dream the building was saved which meant Guru Rinpoche could help them so he sent a request to him. Guru Rinpoche came to Tibet and destroyed the demons but told the monks that Samye could not be completed until the monastery was built in the Lo Gekar in Mustang. There was also a demon in Lo Gekar who Guru Rinpoche killed on whose blood spilled on the mountains. Therefore, Drakmar’s mountains are red.

We visit Tashi Kabum which is located in a cliff approximately 50meters above the Puyon Khola on the way to Luri Gumpa. It takes almost an hour to reach Tashi Kabum by foot from Yara village. It is little bit difficult to reach this cave and also we need to crawl down to enter into the cave but once inside we have enough space to stand approximately five-six meters high. In the center of Tashi Kabum cave there is a white chorten under the ceiling of eight suspicious symbols. The symbols painted on the ceiling are surrounded by Vajras and lotus petals as in a Mandala and contains Lokeshvara and a Buddhist Master. The mantra of compassion, “Om mani padme hum” is painted in a lot of places in Upper Mustang.

The domed ceiling is decorated with eight painted images of Mahasiddhas, circling above the chorten.
Day 16 Luri Gumba-Ghuma Thati(4760m). Go down the valley until you find a shortcut opposite the sheep pens. This joins the main path connecting Yara and the Damother lakes. it passes a large plateau which can be seen clearly from Luri, then climbs the hill to a ledge on the ridge that allows passage to the other side of the crest. A horizontal path then leads to some wide meadows and to a col(Lhetak). Continue along a path on the ridge then a ravine to a high col at 4932m. and descend the other side(sheep pens) and quickly reach the at Ghuma Thati.
Day 17 Ghuma Thati- Kyumu La(5300m) -Batsyak Khola(4880m). follow the vally of the Kyumupani khola up the riverbed, crossing to its right bank. the ravine makes a sharp bend then a final rocky slop leads to the Kyumu La (5300m) if you went a short detour to the summit of kyumupani(5565m) offers a superb view over the Damother Himal. The descent is no problem. Batsyak khola camp is not a nice place, but there’s no option. because it’s too far to cross both the Kyumu la and the Batsyak La. it’s difficalt for our staff, porters and clients need to be very well acclimatised and and fit.
Day 18 Batsyak Khola(4880m)-Batsyak La(5505m)- French Camp(4950m). Go back up the river for around 500m. the with path climbs on the right in a series of hairpins up the steep slopes. it then traverses gradually upwards towards the south to the Batsyak la (5505m) The landscapes are still just as spectacular, although at time snow brings additional difficulties.
The descent is equally well marked, and wade across a small stream then climb gradually to a little col(4988m) french Camp is just beyond. It’s a wide plain of grass, with water an ideal campsite. Damodar Kunda is just half an hour walk further on, across a small col (5014m). French camp it is possible to climb to a small summit (5140m) by going round it to the right. Numerous shaligrams can be seen, along with a beautiful view.
Day 19 French Camp- Damothar kunda (4890m)- Japanese Base Camp(5300m) from french Camp, cross the small col at the end of the gorge and descend gently towards the Damodar lakes. and the pilgrims’ shelter. Reach a large chorten opposite the main lake and follow the path, it clearly visible,still on the right bank. It passes several animal pens used in summer by herds of goats. Continue on the flank. The ravine gets narrower and the path becomes steeper and exposed. The roate rejoins the river course,encumbered by blocks and boulders, until Japanese Base Camp.
Day 20 Japanese Bese Camp(5300m)-Thulo Dunga Camp (5750m) April 25-2015 was a black day for Nepal. when an earthquake struck the country with devastating consequences. Here a huge landlide has totally blacked the path on the left bank of the Khumjungar glacier. slowly a new route will evolve on the east side of the moraine of the right bank. Not so easy initiaally, the route will go directly to thulo Dunga Camp, avoiding all the glacier part, but with a lot of ascent and descent.
Day 21 Thulo Dunga Camp-Saribung pass(6042m)-Saribung Peak clinbing(6328m)-Saribung phedi(5600m). Continue to follow the moraine in an arc then leave it soon to join the glacier. Don’t be tempted by the first col on the left. That is De Hults pass (6050m) It’s Mustang side is very easy but the glacier on the other side is much more complex and full of crevasses. Join the flat of the glacier opposite the Saribung pass and climb it’s wide slopes as best as possible. Normally there is no risk of avalanche if you stay in the middle of the valley and avoid the steeper slopes on the left. The col is very wide, with saribung(6328m) on one side and the two small summit of Sonam Himal and Karsang peak (6225m) on the other.
To establish a camp on the col is a good way to immerse oneself in the altitude and make the most of the variety of summits and you can enjoy the panoramic views of mountains. It is of course also possible to climb saribung the same day as the traverse of the col, but it requires much more effort.
The ascent of Saribung is easy. The effort required is relatively little, around 300m. Its UIAA classification is level F in snow. It is in any case optional. To return from the summit, descent in the axis of the col to the large ledge. cross it to the left and rejoin the edge of the glacier to avoid a steeper slope with crevasses. watch your feet on the pebbles and descent until you reach the lower, flatter part of the glacier. will certainly prefer to stay on the scree. follow this glacier, which curves to the left, then after a short descent climb again on the central moraine to set up camp. To get your bearings, saribung phedi is situated just opposite the cliffs an angle with the De Hults glacier.
Day 22 Saribung Phedi-Nguru(4450m) This is the most disagreeable day of the whole crossing. The descent of the black glacier of Batchauk is laborious, on terrain littered with large blocks and scree. A path marked with a few cairns now allow an easier descent. at the exit of the glacier, stay on the left bank so as not to miss Bhrikuti shail base Camp, a great place to make camp side. Continue to descend, wade cross a little river then follow the main river, probably the khumjungar khola. Its necessary to cross a second steam before climbing again to the top of the old lateral moraine. At the top of the climb, you will discover a wide trail from phu, which in a few years will reach Tibet via the Kongyur La. This new path, on the side of the valley and mainly descending, leads directly to Nguru, an abandoned village with a phantom like ambience. Its a comfortable camp in the old fields, next to water.
Day 23 Nguru-Phu(4080m) The day is not so far, you can be in Phu for lunch and you can explore Phu village. Cross the river, then climb up to a big chorten seen on the arete. The trail continues to traverse, passing a new chorten and a surprising red monolith, before descending straight into Phu. Phu is a restricted area, and trekkers can only enter with a special permit, which must be issued through an accredited trekking Agency. This village is a very old and traditional village with a historical monastery. so you devoted the time to exploring the village, a stack of Tibetan style mud and stone houses, bedecked with prayer flags and crowned by stacks of firewood.
Day 24 Phu vallage-Meta(3560m) Phu to Meta, you will have little long day, way is gradual, along the river side. We can see nice rock cliff, Though out this day, and Chyakhu you can have lunch. It can explore few village Kyang and Chyakhu. In winter time, Phu village people move to Kyang to live, and after lunch, you continue trek to Meta.
Day 25, Meta-Koto(2600m) you should have to walk steep jigjag down hill around 1 hour. We walk through Juniper and pine forests and reach Koto.
