Overview

The Upper Mustang Trek is a popular choice for those wishing to experience trekking in Nepal. It is a famous and unique journey that has you venturing to the heart of the hidden and mysterious world of the old Buddhist Forbidden Kingdom of Mustang.

This part of the Tibetan empire is tied to Tibet in terms of culture, language, and topography. Lying in the shadow of Dhaulagiri massif, the land is surrounded by mysterious rocks, whitewashed houses, barley fields, and prayer flags – that stand in stark contrast to the curiously dry and barren land that the trail takes you through on this surreal journey.

This 17-day trek starts with a flight from Pokhara to Jomsom, where our trek will begin. The trail follows the Kali Gandaki River to Kagbeni. Famous for the rituals performed here for the dead, we take time to join one of the sacred pilgrimages of Tibetan Buddhism and observe some of the ancient rituals that make this holy place so famous across the world.

From Kagbeni we begin our journey into the restricted area of Upper Mustang -across Chele, Syangboche, Gyami, and Chayang and on to Lo Mantang, the capital of the Last Forbidden Kingdom of Nepal. Here we can witness the remains of the abolished monarchy on the ancient land of the remote local Tibetan population. From here we continue our spiritual journey as we return to Dhakmar and find the infamous old cave and one of the oldest Tibetan monasteries, ‘Lo Gekar’. Then finally we end our trek in Jomsom and return to Pokhara, to rest in one of the most beautiful spots in the World before returning to the capital.

We recommend you enjoy this trek between June to October. Or for the chance to experience the annual migration of the local people to lower altitudes for the winter season, we recommend you join us in November. My Everest Trip is a trusted trekking company in Nepal with a highly experienced team that will support you throughout your trek and help you with your permit.

So for more information about the cost or difficulty of the trek, then please contact our friendly team – who will also be happy to give you details of any of the other Annapurna treks that we offer. You can also read our blog below for an insight into what it’s like to join us on this journey.

Additional Info

Upper Mustang Trek permit as a restricted region 

The government of Nepal has protected a few special areas of Nepal that carry special culture and history as a restricted region. The aim is not to control the over-flow of trekkers in Mustang and thus prevent its culture and history. This means you need a special permit issued from the immigration department to get this permit. Immigration Department in Kathmandu and Pokhara issue this permit when you submit an Itinerary approved by MyEverestTrip, the detail of your guide, and insurance. Also, you need to be at least in a group of two people and must hire a licensed guide. 

 

Along with a restricted area upper mustang permit, you will also need an ACAP permit and TIMS card. Make sure you issue all of these in Pokhara before you leave for the trek. Also, note that Upper Mustang Trek permit for Indians and people of SAARC country is also the same, but the price is slightly lower. 

 

Upper Mustang difficulty 

The difficulty of Upper Mustang by travel experts of Nepal is rated “Moderate”. The somewhat leveled trail of the Upper Mustang is easier than other base camp trek which is very steep and rocky. However, since it’s a long journey i.e. with about 14 days of walking ( 6 to 7 hours each day), it can be demanding in some parts. The only rest day is at Lo-Manthang. As long as you don’t include crossing high passes such as Thorong La Pass, Mesokanto La pass, and Marang La, it’s quite an easy journey. This also increases the difficulty level of the Upper Mustang trek.

 

Also compared to the other higher altitude, the Upper Mustang height is really low. The highest points during this walk are Marang La which lies at 4230 meters, Chooser at 3900m, and even Lo Manthang at 3810m. 

 

Although this is not a very high altitude, you might develop symptoms such as headaches, nausea, vomiting, body ache, etc. Enough rest, acclimatization, and hydrating yourself help to prevent altitude sickness. 

Season also determines your difficulty level. Trekking in heat of summer and snow during winter is hard. You can rather aim for the Autumn and Spring trek in Mustang for a comfortable journey. 

 

Upper Mustang Trek Cost

Upper Mustang Trek Cost by MyEverestTrip is $2050. This includes the cost of a guide, porter, transportation, permit, food, and accommodation. 

This 17 days journey going to be the most wonderful memory of your life. 

Since this is the most wonderful trek in Nepal (even better than the Everest Base Camp trek in some expect), the Upper Mustang trek price is also high. The high cost of a permit, off-road transportation route, and expensive accommodation for such a long journey makes it quite expensive. However, the price is worth it. Along with $2050 dollars for the Mustang Trek package, you will need about $500 for tips, donations, and personal expenses. 

 

Best season to visit Mustang

The month of autumn receives the highest number of trekkers for Mustang. Similarly, Kathmandu and Mustang valley are also very vibrant due to festivals like Dashain and Tihar. The views are evident, and the weather is favorable. 

In the same way, spring is also the best season for Upper Mustang Trekking. The colorful blooms of wildflowers, fresh alpine vegetation, stunning mountain views, and warm weather make spring a favorable month. 

Camping trek to Upper Mustang Trekking is easier when you pick the tour in stable weather. However, the guest houses in the Mustang Trekking route are over-occupied in spring and autumn. Make sure that you book the stay in advance during such favorable Upper Mustang weather. 

 Summer is also called the off-season for Nepal trekking; however, the rain doesn’t impact the trans-Himalayan region. All you need is a flexible Itinerary, a good pair of trekking boots, and waterproof trekking great. A thick layer of snow covers every place above 3000m above sea level, and you will need a separate Upper Mustang Trek Itinerary in winter. The thick snow and a frozen lake are paradises to the people who love winter. MyEverestTrek can make special arrangements for off-season Upper Mustang Trekking.

FAQ

How to reach Upper Mustang?

There are essentially 3 ways to reach Upper Mustang i.e. Trekking right from Jomsom, getting to Lo-Manthang on Jeep, or flying directly in a helicopter. Trekking from Jomsom, as given in the Upper Mustang Trek itinerary here, takes 17 days. Or, you can take a jeep on Upper Mustang Road which is mostly off-road. It will be 5 days of the journey from Pokhara and back. Lastly, you can charter a helicopter that takes you to Upper Mustang directly from Kathmandu or Pokhara to Lo-Manthang. Among them, trekking is the most popular option as you enjoy your way to the upper Mustang slowly.

What kind of Upper Mustang Hotel do we stay at?

It’s basically a tea house accommodation. In the lower region i.e. up to Muktinath, we will be staying in local lodges. The rooms only have two single beds, a mattress, pillows, and a clean white sheet. The bathroom might not be as clean as you expected. As you move above, the facility starts to get compromised but the rooms are still comfortable. You will need a sleeping bag of your own as the blanket provided in the tea house might not be enough.

What is the Upper Mustang Temperature throughout the year?

In Autumn, the daytime temperature gets beyond 15°C, and it is scorched. Nights in the mountains are pretty cold; about -2°C is experienced in Lo-Manthang. The Upper Mustang weather in winter is harsh as the temperature drops significantly, and December brings heavy snow. In winter, the daytime temperature falls below -10°C, and it gets as low as -18°C in January. As spring approaches, the Upper Mustang temperature increases. The snow melts only in March, and the overall temperature rises to about 10°C in May. The temperature in summer is about 25°C with few rainfall days.

Upper Mustang Trek

Me and my wife decided to trek the Upper Mustang and luckily we chose  My Everest  Trip. We had a wonderful experience trekking in Upper Mustang. When we landed in TIA, we were welcomed by hari. He was very easy and responsive to work with us. He explained all the queries we had and gave a brief description of the tour. As we were watching his last mustang trek videos and reading blogs about Upper Mustang.  

We had a lot of expectations about the place and the trekking agency we were working with them. We had a private 18-day tour with a whole trip package, a porter guide, and everything that we needed on a trip. And to be honest, we found everything beyond our expectations. The hills, mountains, and monasteries were all amazing, especially Lo Manthang is a great place to visit. Our guide was also equally supportive and friendly. The team made our trek more enjoyable. While writing this, it reminded me of the days we had on the trails. Thank You again for the wonderful experience. Best wishes to Christan and Lisa  We will definitely love to return and probably do the Everest base camp Trek or Dolpo next time.

Best Trip Forever in My Life

It has been my dream to visit the mustang for the past few years, which is half of my life, When we were in Kathmandu, we meet our trekking company (My Everest Trip) though, we Book was really lucky cause when we meet puru manager of My Everest Trip, He is asking few questions for us, and we feel safer and we fell more happy about his way how he works, through the rest of the trip with staying on schedule. He managed to get the flight to Jomsom and we drive to kagbeni cause from Jomsom to kagebeni there is traffic also. We started our trek with puru, the best guide ever not the only manager, when he start briefing all the person is looking for us and hearing about the way how he works then we felt more satisfied than we expect, but he also makes sure always had enough to eat and drink and care of everything’s what we need support from him . we always get good and felt more comfortable in rooms, which was important to me as a female traveler.

We took a great route to Lo Manthang cause he knows very well which route is best and get old monastery and get a good landscape with the mountain route, some other people even doesn’t know how to go this way, one of the highlights of my trip was horseback riding in Lo Manthang. We have been to so many places in lomanthang there are so many nice day trips. After this, we back to Jomsom and took a flight back to Kathmandu, when we back to Kathmandu we decided next year we go to Dolpo and we already told him we need you to have to guide us on this trip also, we recommended him and his company (My Everest Trip ) forever when we meet our friend and family who want to visit Nepal and do adventure trip.

Nice Trek in Upper Mustang

This trek offers everything that trekking is about. Challenging trails, sometimes rough weather conditions, spectacular views, and all the cultural treasures you meet along the trail.

We were a group of four accompanied by our guide Ratna and two porters. I am grateful for the way this trek was handled by the agency. I have no doubt in my mind that they hire only the best people. For us, being first-time visitors in Nepal, all the staff was very helpful and made sure we had the best trek.

We have been trekking on different continents over the last few years, but the people of Nepal are the friendliest we ever come across.

It is most likely we will return and do another trek with y Everest Trip

Maria Austria

Enchanting Trek in Upper Mustang

I’m very proud of myself for doing this trek. But to be honest, I could not have done this without the great assistance offered to me by the professional team from My Everest Trip.    

This enchanting trek is hard work, but monitored by my guide Hari it was not a problem. The team planned everything the best way and I enjoyed every moment of it.  Hari was good company, sharing not only his great knowledge about the area but also giving good advice about how to walk cleverly, choose a good pace, and take rests. 

I recommend this trek operated by My Everest Trip, knowing they will get out of their way to keep their clients happy.

Robin Australia

Best Trip in My Life

Being an experienced trekker I have been hiking many continents, but the Upper Mustang is so far one of my favorites. Not only because of the immense beauty of this region but also because My Everest trip added so much to the trip. Our Guide Hari and our porters were very nice people to be around making our days joyful, always making sure we were good.

I recommend if you have time to do the long treks to get the best experience and feeling of being part of nature. This trek is very nice balanced as we walk no more than 7 hours per day. This gives you time to enjoy all the magnificent views and be well-rested for the next day. And I must say, the Himalayas and The Upper Mustang region are in a special league.

I will definitely consider traveling to Nepal again, and I will not hesitate to contact Puru for arranging another trek. Hope to see all of you good people at My Everest Trip again.

My Everest Trip did amazing job

I recently did the Upper Mustang Trek with a group of friends. This was such a great adventure I feel urge to write good review for other adventurous people to benefit from

When you spend your hard earned money you really want value for it and My Everest Trip (MET) lived up to all my expectations and beyond. MET was recommended to me by family. My first contact with the company took place several months before our trip was planned. If you are unexperienced in trekking you have so many questions about equipment, guides, porters, how hard the trek is and so on. Corresponding with Puru made me relax more and more as he responded very quickly to all my emails. I soon realized I had nothing to worry about. He only works with certified guides, and everybody who works for him is ensured. He also gave good advice on equipment, what you should bring from home and what you can buy cheaper in Nepal. His directions about how to get smoothly through all the airport procedures also came in handy.

Upon arrival In Kathmandu Puru picked us up in the airport and took us to our hotel in Thamel. The next day we meet Hari who was our guide and we had all the final details about the trek and how to pack our backpack and day pack.

Upper Mustang was great. MET are so well organized. Hari and the friendly porters were great company, Hari in particular always making sure we were fine and sharing his big knowledge about the region. The porters, though carrying heavy weight, always friendly and smiling. When you do strenuous walking it’s nice to be surrounded by good people to support and cheer you up, knowing that every night you have good accommodation and good healthy food that gives you strength to carry on.

The Upper Mustang Trek is loaded with cultural treasures and indescribable beauty of nature, having an experienced guide is essential, especially when he like Hari shares all his knowledge willingly and with great pleasure and proudness.

I understand why MET has such loyal clients. They are true to Nepalese tradition and have an amazing network of skilled people but they (very importantly) understand that their clients come from all parts of the world with different backgrounds and expectations. All the team members are humble and polite yet proud of what they do. Trekking runs in their blood and this is exactly what you need being a guest here.

From the bottom of my heart, Thank you Puru and MET, this trek will be treasured by me and my friends for the rest of our lives.

And I give My Everest Trip the highest recommendation possible…. Namaste
