Final Words from the Company

Traveling in Upper Mustang is not cheap. It’s not easy. It’s not simple and it’s not comfortable. Upper Mustang is isolated by culture, by government order, and by geography. Princes of ancient kingdoms walk the walled cities, remains of the long dead rest in peace in caves from prehistory, and barely-cut roads wend through skies topped with mountains.

As the resorts roll in, some of the enchantment will fade, but, for now at least, Upper Mustang is a world of magic, mountain gods, and kings. So why not to visit Upper Mustang by Jeep Drive or Why not to Walk Upper Mustang. Himalayan Trip has a both option

We used Nepal Tours for our 13 days Upper Mustang Jeep Tour during the Tiji festival 2018. Kulendra, the company owner was very accommodating and managed all of our arrangements from Kathmandu brilliantly. On the 4wd jeep drive from Jomsom to Lo Manthang and back to Jomsom, our guide Raju was also superb and every day on the drive went extremely smoothly. I would highly recommend Kulendra to anyone thinking of any professional trip to Nepal.
