HIGHLIGHTS
  • Explore the TransHimalayan Region landscapes and sceneries
  • Visit ancient monasteries, caves and palaces
  • Get insights into Tibetan culture and scenery around the forbidden kingdom of Mustang
  • Enjoy excellent Himalayan views of Annapurna, Nilgiri, Dhaulagiri and surrounding peaks
Upper Mustang Trekking offers a great opportunity to get insights into Trans Himalayan region of Annapurna which is quite similar to Tibetan trans-Himalayan topography. The colorful rock formations with numerous cave dwellings high up the cliffs, impressive chortens and ancient monasteries reflect the culture and traditions of Buddhism. Along with topographical similarities, the local people still follow the centuries old life style and traditions. You get an amazing feeling of isolation while trekking around the deserted lands which also enchants and inspires visitors to this region.

Major attraction and actually an opportunity during our Upper Mustang trek is the walled city of Lo-Manthang palaces. Upper Mustang is known as forbidden kingdom and still sees very few tourists each year. Trek along the land of canyons of the Kali Gandaki River, across the rugged land where people have saved their centuries old culture in Buddhist chortens, small stupas, atop hills, on pathways leading into villages and even inside caves. Tibetan Buddhism and the myths are intertwined threads that are in turn woven into the landscape.

Finally as you reach Lo Manthang, we will also arrange your meeting to King of Mustang, Jigme Parbal Bista in the walled capital Lo Manthang. Yes, Nepal is republic but Mustang even today has a king! The Mustangi locals have their own head of the tribe whom they respect, he is known as Mustangi King. Visit the three red-walled monasteries at the heart of the town; watch the astonishing way of life and family life around the nomadic villages.

The best time to trek around Upper Mustang Trek is from the month of March to November. This trek can be joined even during the monsoon season as Upper Mustang lies in rain-shadow area and receives negligible amount of rainfall. So, except in winter due to extreme cold, this trek to the hidden kingdom is recommended during anytime of the year.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • What is the required budget for a trip to Nepal?

    How much you spend in Nepal is largely decided by things you want to do in the country. A 5-day trekking trip in Nepal can start from as little at USD 400 per person. A weekend-long safari in Chitwan National Park is available at less than USD 200.

    On average, seven days in Nepal with accommodation and some or all meals included costs anywhere between USD 700 to USD 1500 per person. Good rooms at hotels in Nepal range from USD 25 to over USD 150 per person, per night, while around USD 1.5 a day can buy you three meals in decent restaurants. 

  • 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.

     

  • 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 Asia open for tourists?

    Despite the initial fears of the Covid-19 pandemic, most Asian countries have managed to mitigate its effects. As such, many popular destinations throughout the continent are currently open for travelers with precautionary measures like mandatory vaccinations. A few countries, however, require newly arrived travelers to spend a couple of days in quarantine.

    As of February 2022, countries like Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia are officially open for vaccinated tourists without the need for quarantine. Meanwhile, India and Indonesia are two of the countries that may require you to quarantine for up to a week on arrival. However, Japan, Vietnam, and Myanmar are yet to open their doors to visitors.

     

  • 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.
