Upper Mustang Trek

Rocky highland, the narrow river, as well as the Golden terrain and gorgeous Himalayan range, dropped around the valley; the magic of Upper Mustang is beyond Comprehension. Until 1992 the kingdom was apart from a few exceptions closed to a foreigner. The ancient kingdom of Lo Manthang – the trans-Himalayan village of Nepal; Upper Mustang Trek offers wonderful landscapes and colorful barren hills holding interesting myths. Geographically, Upper Mustang is the perfect place to observe the Tibetan plateau and culture; so, visiting Upper Mustang makes you feel like visiting Tibet.

The treacherous paths curved by hand into sheer cliffs, untouched scenery,  spectacular views of whitewashed settlements, snow-capped peaks, hinterland enriched with deep canyons, and fabulous 16th-century monasteries are the major highlights of the treks. The remoteness and inaccessibility have protected well-defined Tibetan Buddhist Culture and remain flourishing as they did many years ago.

Tiji Festival

The attraction of the Mustang region is the Tiji Festival. As you can experience the true life of the real mountain people of Nepal, Upper Mustang Trekking is a rare and privileged opportunity. A special permit is required to travel further from Kagbeni and to the trek, Upper Mustang one will be escorted by a government-appointed official.

Then, the trail leads you to the hidden valley of the ancient Buddhist kingdom. This trek brings a remarkable and rare cultural experience along with an incredible adventure trek, that can make your trip a life-changing experience. The barley fields, whitewashed houses, and Chhortens decorated with flags add a splash of color to the landscape.

Lo Manthang

Finally, the journey to Mustang begins from Jomsom after a scenic flight from Pokhara. Landing at the airport in Jomsom will be a glorious moment for you. Jomsom is famous for breathtaking Himalayan landscapes, apples, and strong winds. The vital point of this varied and long route is a brilliant week of trekking through a wild and uninhabited area. We finally reach the upper Kali Gandaki Valley; and have several more days to explore the ‘forbidden kingdom’ of Upper Mustang, including a visit to the striking walled settlement of Lo Manthang. If you want to get off the beaten track – try this one!

Best Time to Do Upper Mustang Trek

Mainly, the best months for Upper Mustang Trek are Spring (March to May) and Autumn (September to November). The decreasing level of the Kali Gandaki River enables you to take a jeep to farther distances. So that, It makes it easy for you to trek. It is located in the rain shadow region of Nepal. The trek is also possible during the monsoon season during June and August.

Even though the Upper Mustang trek is possible during winter, the cold temperature and snow might not suit everyone. Even the ethnic group of Lo-Manthang leaves the area to avoid the snow and frosty temperature. Upper Mustang is also popular for the Tiji Festival (which means ‘prayer for world peace) Also, during the summertime, people celebrate Saga Dawa Festival. Please feel free to get in touch with us.
