HIGHLIGHTS
  • Visit this sacred and healing destination, surrounded by stunning mountain views
  • Hike along the Kali Gandaki Gorge, the deepest gorge in the world
  • Explore centuriesold monasteries and soak up the Tibetan culture
  • Visit the ancient walled city of Lo Manthang
The Upper Mustang trek leads you into the hidden kingdom of Mustang, also called Lo. The ultimate destination of this trek is Lo-Manthang, the capital of Upper Mustang. This medieval town is surrounded by a huge wall, and it not only offers its visitors beautiful views of the rugged landscape but also allows them to observe the Tibetan Buddhist culture that has been practiced in this region since many centuries ago.

In and around Lo-Manthang, hikers can discover ancient monasteries, Mani walls, Buddhist shrines, Gompas and Mandalas. Lo used to be a part of the Tibetan empire and you will see houses built in the Tibetan style with white washed walls.

Mustang is an arid, treeless land of monasteries. The best season is March to October, although Upper Mustang is in the rain shadow region of Nepal, meaning trekkers can also visit during the monsoon season. Several years ago, trekking used to be organized as camping or tenting treks. Now, the area is developing simple tea houses.

Scott's review for another Glorious Himalaya Trekking Pvt Ltd. tour
“This is the second time that I have trekked with Glorious Himalaya Trekking (last year I trekked the Api Saipal Himal Trek with my partner) and again their service was excellent. As per usual, Ganesh arranged for airport transfer to and from the hotel. Ganesh also acted as my guide on the trek, and both he and Ram (my porter) were very attentive to my needs. Their knowledge of the region provided for a trouble-free trek. Finally, the dinner provided by Ganesh on the last night was a nice opportunity to re-live the trek.

We will be using Glorious Himalaya Trekking again and I would recommend them to anyone.

Thank you,
Scott.”

“Everest was phenomenal !!! Even if we did not had luck with the weather, we still enjoyed the trip. Bishal was the greatest guide in Nepal. He wouldn't leave my side even though I was hours behind the main party. He even braved rafting the Trisuli River with us althoudh he did mention he would NEVER go rafting again. (doesn't like getting tossed around and overboard on our raft)”

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.

  • Is quarantine in Nepal in effect for arriving visitors?

    In response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. Please check the government travel pages and advisories of your home country and the official website of the Nepal Tourism board here.

  • What happens if someone gets altitude sickness, does the rest of the group continue on?

    It depends on the situation. Sometimes, altitude sickness can be treated and the trekker may wish to continue. If not, the rest of the group can continue on if they want and the sick person can descend.

  • How does it work with a porter?

    Generally, the porter will pick up the baggage in the morning and drop it at the hotel in the evening. You will not always be walking with your porter or have access to your bag during the day, while trekking. 

  • Is a visa on arrival available?

    Typically, yes. However, in response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. It may be necessary to obtain a tourist visa in your own country before travel. For updated information on visas, please check the Nepal Tourism Board and the Government of Nepal Immigration websites.
