About Upper Mustang Trek

Upper mustang trek is one of the most unique and adventurous treks. The geography as well as the Tibetan lifestyle and culture is similar to that of Tibet and Ladak in India. The untouched beauty and the sear remoteness of the landscape would give one the surreal feeling of being in a wilderness. It is categorized as one of the restricted treks in Nepal requiring special permit. Minimum of 2 people is required to get the special permit to trek the Upper Mustang.

The geography of the Mustang region is dry throughout the year and has little to no vegetation. And it barely rains in the region but it snows heavily during the winter months. Even the people inhabitants of the region tend to move to the city or lower belt to escape the cold winter in the forbidden land.

Upper mustang has always been isolated from the rest of the world. Only in the recent years there has been easier access to the region after the expansion of the road networks all the way to Jomsom from Beni. The road is not an easy one but its adventure in itself.

The trek begins from Jomsom after a scenic flight from Pokhara. Jomsom the famous windy town which is the headquarter of the region and serves as the gateway to the upper mustang. Hiking alongside the holy river Kaligandaki we reach Kagbeni. It is where we enter the restricted area of the Mustang region. Hiking further through the small settlements of Chele, Syangboche, Gyami we reach Lo-Manthang, the capital of the Hidden kingdom of Mustang.

June, July, August is the ideal time for this trek. If you are flexiable with your time we highly recommend you to join the trek during the Tiji Festival which is celebrated during the month of July. You can contact us for the confirmation of the dates as its different each year.
