  • 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... Read more

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 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.

  • How much will a trip to Nepal cost?

    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.
