Upper Mustang Trek - 17 Days

Upper Mustang Trek takes you through the remoteness and isolated place in Nepal. Few places in the world can claim to have the isolation and remoteness of Upper Mustang region of Nepal. Located in the western zone of Dhaulagiri and bordering Tibet to the north, Mustang is one of the two districts, along with Manang, known as ‘districts beyond the mountains’.

Upper Mustang Trek typically begins from Jomson, the district headquarters of Mustang. You will walk a wide stretch along the banks of the Kali Gandaki River. Mustang region is also unique in the sense that it has rugged desert terrain, unlike other mountainous regions of Nepal. You will come across green vegetation only intermittently.

Along the way to Lo Manthang, the furthest point of Upper Mustang Trek, you will come across the now famous village of Kagbeni which has earned its reputation for its arid but picturesque landscape and is a popular rest point for many trekkers. (Optional: Along with Kagbeni, another popular highlight of Upper Mustang Trekking is the holy place of Muktinath, which has the much revered Muktinath Temple. The place holds special religion significance to Hindus and Buddhists alike.)

Thakali people are the native inhabitants of the region and you will see Buddhist and Tibetan way of life in the region. Upper Mustang Trek is, hence, a good way to experience Tibetan and Buddhist culture as well. As you reach Lo Manthang, the capital of the Kingdom of Lo, you will feel as far away from urban life as you can imagine.

Along with Upper Mustang Trekking , we also offer other similar trekking packages in and around the Mustang region among which Annapurna Base Camp trek and Annapurna Circuit Trekking is a popular choice of many trekkers.
