HIGHLIGHTS
  • Scenic Drive from Kathmandu to Pokhara
  • Amazing Flight from Pokhara to Jomsom
  • Explore the Hidden Kingdom of Lomanthang Mustang
  • Experience the Tibetan Culture and Lifestyle
The Upper Mustang trek provides travellers with the opportunity to venture into the remote, semi-independent Kingdom of Upper Mustang, located north of Annapurna on the Tibetan border at an altitude of roughly 4000 meters. Make your way up the Kali Gandaki river’s banks, witnessing the unbelievable beauty of blue waters and desert surroundings to this ancient kingdom – a place where culture meets nature and forms an eternal bond.

This mystical region is geologically and culturally a part of the Tibetan plateau. Its valleys are arid and dry with colourful rock formations and cliffs. Behind the cliffs stand the Himalayan peaks, awe-strikingly beautiful and snow-topped. Part of Mustang’s beauty lies in the fact that this restricted region is visited only by a limited number of tourists, which leaves it one of the few places on the planet where one can see undisturbed Tibetan culture.

Mustang is well known not only for its unique, breathtaking landscapes but also for its unique cuisine and production of a tasty apple liqueur. For the brave trekkers and the ones keen on experimenting, the tasting of the local butter tea is an unforgettable experience and a chance to near oneself to the lifestyle of the local population.

Great Guides - A shame that the Mustang Valley is under construction

“THE TOUR: We had chosen to shorten our total amount of days in the Mustang Valley, so we had a bit of a time pressure to both trek in and out of the valley in 9 days. Our great guides proved very helpful in doing this. The tour was a mix of homestays and we were very positively surprised by the level of service and offerings. The culture in the valley is intact and flourishing. The old ways are very much alive in here!

THE ONLY DOWNSIDE on the tour is that a road is being build cutting through the valley and up to Tibet. This road construction can at times be a nuisance and obstruct the beautiful views that otherwise exists on the path. I hope for the people of Mustang and trekkers that the old trekking roads that has given way for the new double lane road will be reconstructed higher up the mountain-slopes as that will increase the experience.

I can truly recommend this tour.”

“My partner and I organised the Upper Mustang trek through Himalayan Trekking. Communication was excellent with Surya and customising the itinerary was made very easy.
We had a fantastic experience on the trek with our excellent guide Tersang making sure we were all looked after the whole time. He was very knowledgeable about the region, telling us the history of the places we visited and he knew the best places to stay and visit. We went at a pace that suited us and when my partner injured herself he organised a Jeep at short notice.
Tersang is very friendly and personable and made the tough days easier.
We would highly recommend Tersang and this company.”

“It was me and my friend first time in Nepal. We did upper Mustang trekking with Asian Journeys. The price was reasonable. Our Guide and porter were really great. They are knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. Everything was organized very well and booked correctly by Mr Surya owner of this company. It was a great experience and we like to highly recommend Asian Journeys Team to everyone who is planning to do a trek in Nepal.”

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.
