HIGHLIGHTS
  • Trekking to the Forbidden Kingdom Mustang.
  • Century Old Monasteries.
  • Dramatic Landscapes.
  • Crossing The Two High Passes Thorong La and Mesokanto La.
Hidden behind the giant peaks Dhaulagiri and Annapurna, Mustang lies in the southern border of the Tibetan highland and is one of the restricted areas which require a special trekking permit through a registered trekking company to visit.

Mustang trekking consists of treeless deserted scenery, vertical rocky tracks up and down and beautiful views of Mt. Dhaulagiri, Mt. Nilgiri, and Mt. Annapurna, including many other peaks such as Tukche peak, Mustang Himal, Tilicho peak, and Arniko Chuli.

The route to Mustang implies traveling through landscapes of arid regions, barren edges, deep gorges, and moraine valleys and eroded rock faces. Also, barley fields and grazing land where sheep are seen grazing and horses are used to carry heaps. The views of the desolate Kali Gandaki Valley, almost infinite spaces surrounding Kagbeni, rambling ridges and elevated mountains offer an amazing experience for adventure lovers.

Trekking in Mustang is really one of the most gratifying experiences you can ever acquire. You will also get a chance to explore the ancient society that has been untouched by modernization for centuries. This Mustang trek can be also referred to as the Rhododendron trek as it takes you to different varieties of rhododendron forests and it looks more beautiful during spring season because of blossoming rhododendrons.

On this trek you will also get to cross Annapurna Circuit's Thorong La Pass (5417m.) where you will enjoy some absolutely stunning high Himalaya scenery over the Kaligandaki valley through the entire Annapurna range, Mukut and Mustang Himal to the West. This trek will also take you to Mesokunda La pass (5315m) which allows you to witness the large Himalayas and the route to this pass is covered by snow almost all the time. You can go for this moderate and strenuous trek during spring, summer and autumn.

“Unique adventures is such a wonderful company and employees very good and reliable people. Our guide Megendra is very skilled, had done this trek more times than can count, and treated us like family. He went out of his way to make sure we were doing well and taken care of. Our Porter Prim was very professional and also got our extra gear where it needed to be in a timely manner and made sure to be careful and not damage anything. Our travel supervisor Chris Chhetri was extremely top notch in quality. He worked with us to fine tune different needs and also help with any issues that came up. He took care of any and all things so that we didnt have to think about any logistics.”

“If you are looking for cheapest deals for trekking in Nepal, this is the company you should choose. I got the cheapest deal for ABC trek and though the package was cheap they did not disappoint me and there was no compromise when it came down to hospitality. My guide was a nice jolly person and we had great trek together.
I will definitely choose them again for my next trekking trips.”

“It was ONE MORE fantastic trek tour with UNIQUE ADVENTURES INTERNATIONAL PVT. LTD., KATHMANDU, in May 2017.

Earlier, I had done Annapurna circuit Trek in October 2016.

No need to say, the tour was once again an outstandingly conducted one. Mr. Khum Subedi took all efforts to ensure that we had a safe, enjoyable trek tour.

The way he conducted the emergency operations to evacuate one of our trek-mates from an altitude of 17000' is really commendable.

The tour Guide, Mr. Raja Ram and all the helpers conducted themselves in the best possible manner and ensured a wonderful tour for us. Raja Ram is a very knowledgeable and intelligent person and knows what exactly to do, in case of any emergency. I compliment the entire for for their sincerity.

I heartily congratulate Unique Adventures for their continued excellence.

For obvious reasons, I strongly recommend this company for all/ any tours in Nepal, Bhutan and India.”

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • How much money do I need to bring with me?

    Your personal budget obviously depends on your spending habits and what is included in your trip cost. If accommodation is included, but meals are not, we would suggest that you bring around 30 USD per day per person for meals. Having a hot shower or charging your device sometimes costs extra. There are also sometimes small crafts/souvenirs to buy along the trekking route which you may want to bring extra money for. Also, consider whether you would be staying in Kathmandu or Pokhara before or after your trek.

  • How much should my backpack weigh?

    A properly packed backpack (not including your day pack) should ideally not weigh more than 13 kg. It is also important to note that if you are taking a flight to the start of your trek, many smaller aircraft have weight restrictions. For example, if you are flying from Kathmandu to Lukla, you are only allowed 10kg of checked luggage, and 5 kg of hand baggage. Thus, in case of a small flight, you should ideally pack a 10 kg backpack for checked luggage, and then add 5 kg in your hand baggage. You can then re-shuffel the weigt once you start your trek at the trailhead.  

  • Do I need a porter?

    The decision to hire a porter is up to you and usually based on your fitness level and/or budget. One porter can be shared between two people and can carry up to 25 kg. Many trekkers hire a porter to have a more comfortable trek.

  • Do I require a porter for carrying water?

    On most popular treks you can expect plenty of places where you can refill your water bottle, meaning you don’t need to carry a huge water supply with you. Bring an extra bottle of water if you are concerned. If you already have a porter, you can ask him/her to carry water as long as it is within the weight limit. Another option is to carry water purification tablets or LifeStraw, both of which can be found in Kathmandu.

  • When should I arrive in Kathmandu before the tour?

    We suggest that you arrive at least one day prior to the start day of the trek because the tour operators usually require one working day to arrange trekking permits. Arrive earlier if you want to explore Kathmandu on your own or acclimate to any time differences.
