About Upper Mustang

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, Mustang 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 feint 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.

Great Trek and fantastic landscape Reviewed Tour: Upper Mustang trek

“A dream comes true: we had a wonderfull time at Upper Mustang, tremendous landsacape, awesome villages, very friendly people and a nice crew.”

“Although we found the trek hard going in places (2 average fitness 50+ year olds) it was well worth the effort for the amazing scenery and interesting villages. The views are ever changing with a new surprise around every corner.
Lo Mathang is a highlight with the old walled city - the visit to the Monastries was a highlight. The jeep track back down was better than any roller coaster we've been on - definitely not for the faint hearted. It is presently being widened to 5m all the way from Jomsom to the Tibetan boarder so expect this "lost valley" to become a lot busier in the years to come.”

“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!”

“Really a magical trip lost in the mountains and far away from the most frequented trekking routes.

The landscape is pure and you will find villages along the way with people living and there you will find your guest house waiting with a bed and good nepali food.

After a long research I piked up Unique Adventure. They looked like they know what they were doing and the price was very competitive. Mr Khum Subedi the man in charge was quick to answer my mails and available to my requests. I payed half from Europe with a bank transfer and gave the rest when in Katmandu almost 6 months later. I went with an experienced guide named Ram and a porter included. The accommodations were fine. All guest houses well experienced and some really real Mustang home life. The places are amazing.

If you want to go I strongly recommend you this company.”
