Upper Mustang Trek


13 Days

Maximum People


Minimum Age


Upper Mustang Trek is strictly not for everyone. Due to the remoteness and the restrictions put up by the government due to Tibetan activities seen in the region, Special permit needs to be obtained before any foreigner sets foot in the region of Upper Mustang.

The typical trek to Upper Mustang begins from Jomsom. Roundtrip from Jomsom usually lasts for about 10 days and passes through typical Tibetan settlements, vast river beds, desert-like territories and shocking habitats of Tibetan origin individuals.

One may not find it hard to relate the overall geography of the Upper Mustang similar to that of Tibet. Mt. Dhaulagiri shades the region of Mustang and desolates it from any landscape found in Nepal.

The trail follows the salt caravan route of the old days, during which the people of Mustang traded Tibetan salt with grain from the lowlands. The final stop for this trek is Lo Manthang capital of the region. It’s a separate kingdom ruled by their own king even till today.

Lo La pass (3950 m)  on the way to Upper Mustang trek gives you the shimmering view of this capital city thriving in the midst of a desert. Lo Manthang gives you a different ambience that may not be found anywhere across the globe. The narrow alleys, barren landscapes and small dusty hills will drift you somewhere none can even imagine.


  • ZThe forbidden capital of the country, Lo Manthang.
  • ZThe origin of Tibetan lamas and Buddhist.
  • ZCollection of oldest monasteries and caves.
  • ZThe Tibetan-influenced lifestyle of mountain people


  • ZThe restricted area so, it would be better having a guide.
  • ZTChallenging afternoon winds.
