To trek in Upper Mustang is a rare privilege. Here you will experience the way of life of true mountain people, who were not much in touch with the rest of Nepal for hundreds of years, and even until recent times had an officially recognized king. In many ways, Upper Mustang trekking is similar to treks in Tibet, as geographically it is a part of the Tibetan plateau. The district of Mustang was, until 1950, a separate kingdom within the boundaries of Nepal. The last king, the Raja of Mustang, still has his home in the ancient capital known as Lo Manthang.

The Mustang trekking is not particularly difficult, the highest point reached being only 3,800 meters, but the conditions at times can be arduous. Mustang is cold in winter and is always windy and dusty through the year. Winter treks are best avoided due to harsh weather. Mustang trek requires a minimum of 9 days, starting and ending in Kagbeni. This allows the trek to be completed within the 10-day period that the permit allows. The route generally follows the Kali Gandaki valley but, occasionally climbs high above the valley walls. If you have a short time to go upper mustang then why you may not choose a Land Cruiser Overland Trip to Upper Mustang

During this exciting Upper Mustang Trekking, walk through the land of canyon vistas. These surround and revolve around the enormous valley of the Kali Gandaki. The Upper Mustang trekking isn’t just any ordinary remote valley in Nepal. The entire area of the Upper Mustang, from the Tibetan border in the north to Kagbeni in the south, tucks in a number of unique experiences for trekkers to feed their eyes and soul. From the panorama of Nilgiri, Dhaulagiri, Annapurna and other marvelous ranges towards the south, to the trans-Himalayan climate (cool and semi-arid), and the Tibetan–influenced, pristine medieval Buddhist arts, architecture and exotic culture & tradition dating back to the 13th and the 15th century. All contribute to make this, one of the super trekking destination in Nepal.

We had a fantastic 16 days upper mustang trek with Nepal Tours in March 2016! Everything was very professionally organized and delivered to give us exactly the right balance between adventure and relaxation. On the trek we were assigned sancha as our guide and raju as our porter – two great chaps who were tremendous company during our stay in the Mustang region and really ensured our trip went smoothly.
