HIGHLIGHTS
  • Trek in the remote, famed region of Upper Mustang in the Nepal Himalayans

  • Challenge yourself and discover the spiritual journey that comes with days of trekking
  • Discover the highlights of Kathmandu on a sightseeing tour before your trek
The former Himalayan kingdom of Mustang is an arid and starkly beautiful land. Long protected from mass tourism; its allure has come from its inaccessibility and its reputation as the last bastion of traditional Tibetan culture. Mustang has a long, rich and complex history that makes it one of the most fascinating corners of the Himalaya.

Mustang is an ancient Himalayan Kingdom which lies in the northern central part of Nepal and at the top of the Kali Gandaki River. This region is full of some of Nepal’s oldest Buddhist Monasteries, ancient and isolated villages with quaint whitewashed houses. The restricted area of Tibetan influence lies north of Kagbeni, and Nepalese refer to this as Upper Mustang.

By choosing this trek through Mustang, we will be sampling a slice of history that may not be preserved for much longer. The sights of spectacularly fluted red cliffs and Mustang’s endless expanse of yellow and grey rolling hills will stay in our memory long after we go home, as will our experience of the Kingdom’s incredible little towns and the rugged gentility of its people. The trek takes us to the walled town of Lo-Manthang, a visually extraordinary place, home of the present King and full of beautiful temples and gompas.

This itinerary is designed best for those who have some kind of previous experience in high altitudes over (3840m/12599ft) and are able to walk 7-8 hours a day. This allows us to walk very long distances with the required amount of high altitudes acclimatizing. Also, the itinerary goes through the various landscapes and traditional Tibetan-like settlement.

For more information please see the itinerary and whats included sections, or contact us to see if this trip is a good fit for you.

Memorable trek to upper Mustang
“I did a trek with Alpine Club of Himalaya. Sujan was our guide and Tsiring and another fellow our porters. Agency has organized everything from auto bus to pokhara, flights, permits. Trek was fantastic. Owner has found out alternative treks in order to avoid the new road. It was 3rd time form me in Nepal. For sure not last one. So it's time to go to nepal. Go and come again. Such a beautiful place with beautiful people.”

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 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.

     

  • 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.
