Upper Mustang trek Reviews

4.8 - Excellent Based on 17 customer reviews
An Adventure! Reviewed Tour: Upper Mustang trekking
Timothy Cushing From USA
4 - Very Good
“We were meant to go on the Upper Mustang trek to Lo Manthang, but they were having the snowiest winter in 10 years. We had to change our plans considerably and only made it as far as Tangbe. Mustang was beautiful and clear, especially with the snow, and we had the rare experience of seeing a snow leopard in the wild. From there we went closer to Pokhara and trekked around a bit before returning a few days early to Kathmandu. Our guide said that normally trekking in Mustang that time of year is doable, but it was too snowy for us to make it all the way to Lo Manthang. It was a unique experience. The tea houses were all super nice, and we enjoyed the food along the way.”

“The Unique Adventures guides and porters made the trip possible and amazing. They became friends almost immediately. The trip provides almost everything for you, which makes it easy to focus on the scenery and fellow trekkers. I went during the summer and experienced little rain, however there were also no mountain views. The trek is mostly along jeep roads which is something to be aware of. The towns and monasteries are the highlights of the trek. You experience so much of the Nepal/Tibetan culture. Tea houses were cozy and had surprisingly many amenities (hot showers, clean water, comfy mattresses). All in all was a great experience!”

Upper Mustang Trek - Overview

Mustang, the former Himalayan kingdom, only opened for trekking in 1991, and is considered to be a last bastion of Tibetan culture. If you are looking for a very cultural trek having stunning treeless barren landscapes with yellow and grey rolling hills eroded by the wind, similar to the Tibetan Plateau, the Upper Mustang trek is a great option!

In common usage Mustang refers to the arid, Tibetan-like region, known to its inhabitants as Lo. Seven hundred years ago Mustang was a bustling place. It was a centre of Buddhist scholarship and art, and very likely the easiest connection between the salt deposits of Tibet and the cities of the Indian subcontinent.

The Mustang trek will take you through Upper Mustang, a restricted area, which previously only allowed some 200 trekkers through annually. While the trail is amazing, its rural and barren landscapes are also not for the faint hearted. The trek itself does not go to extremely high elevations and is not physically very tough, but relentless afternoon winds can be a challenge. Because of the winds and lack of sufficient water, camping will be done in villages, which are not always conveniently spaced. Some trekking days will thus be relatively long and others relatively short. These are, however, the conditions if you want to experience the starkly beautiful and highly cultural land of Mustang, a trek which is highly recommended.
