The Upper Mustang trek leads you to the hidden and semi-independent kingdom of Nepal attached to the Tibetan Border. This region is also known as Lo.

Hundreds of years back, Lo belonged to Tibetan rulers, hence Upper Mustang still widely practices Tibetan Buddhism. The area is also known as the Himalayan cold desert. Thousands year old Buddhist monasteries, colorful rock formations, and hundreds of caves are some of the highlights on this trek.

The Upper Mustang trek was not permitted by the Government of Nepal until 1992, though the area is restricted even today for individual trekkers or backpackers. June, July and August are the best months to visit the area.

Until recently, the Upper Mustang Trek was accessible only in camping mode but nowadays basic tea houses have made it easier for trekkers to get their meals and accommodation.

Upper Mustang area is also known as "The last Forbidden Kingdom" and Mustang Trekking is an adventure of a lifetime for anyone from anywhere in the world.

Upper Mustang Trek in June 2018

“I and my partner did Upper Mustang Trek with Himalayanleisure in June 2018. It was a great experience. The flights couldn't happen due to bad weather so we took a private jeep which was an adventure. The trek was arranged nicely and the staffs were very caring. Our guide and porter made the trek possible. It is a beautiful trek I can recommend to other people in rainy season in Nepal. In general, when we reach high, there was no rain.”

“Very friendly guide, amazing boss who has been to Malaysia 3 times and very strong porter. The services provided were more than our expectations. A truly beautiful trekking in Nepal. The jeep from Jomsom to Beni is tiring and definitely no if options are available.”

“I am back to home after spending more than 2 weeks in Nepal and a trek with Himalayan Leisure company operated by Upendra, a professional guys committed to work. The trekking was together with my wife and a guide and a porter from the company. Everything went so smooth and well organized. The trekking was more than beautiful from starting to the end. Lots of traditional people were met on this route. Very few people away from crowds which makes sense after you pay hefty fees to enter the area. I am totally satisfied with this trekking route, this was an amazing experience for both of us!”
