Upper Mustang Trek
USD2350 USD2170 per person
The Upper Mustang Trek provides travellers with the opportunity to venture into the remote, semi-independent Kingdom of Upper Mustang, located north of Annapurna on the Tibetan border at an altitude of roughly 4000 meters. Make your way up the Kali Gandaki river’s banks, witnessing the unbelievable beauty of blue waters and desert surroundings to this ancient kingdom – a place where culture meets nature and forms an eternal bond.
Upper Mustang was opened to non-Nepali trekkers only some fifteen years ago and even today, access is still highly restricted. To enter Upper Mustang, that is to travel further north from Kagbeni, trekkers need special trekking permit and must be accompanied by a government appointed officer.
A moderate Upper Mustang Trek has difficulty in terms of many aspects. However, the Mustang Trekking is absolutely doable if you are physically fit and enthusiastic about exploring the trans-Himalayan terrain.It is suitable for all levels of including a family with kids and seniors too. If anyone cannot walk in the middle of the path, there is a jeep transfer facility as well. Hence, Upper Mustang Trek is safe and convenient.
Upper Mustang, being in the Himalayan rain shadow, is one of the regions in the country suitable for trekking even during monsoons. During this time, the upper Kali Gandaki valley is still quite dry with only occasional rainfall.
