    • The trail connecting Hinku Cave and Deurali is avalanche-prone, so you must take a long detour on your route to Annapurna Base Camp if needed.

    Upper Mustang Trek

    Escape the Extraordinary | Duration: 10-17 Days | Moderate | Max. 4200 meters | Teahouses | March-May/Sept-Dec.

    Upper Mustang Trek

    Views of the barren landscape seen on the Upper Mustang Trek.

    The ultimate gateway to the mysterious world of Lo, a once-forbidden Buddhist kingdom of Mustang, the Upper Mustang Trek offers a great exploration. It was opened to the outside world in 1992. Due to its isolation, it has preserved its ancient language and culture, which you can witness on your trek. 

    The enchanting landscape of Mustang, with its rugged terrains and tanned red cliffs and hills, will give you a different perspective of Nepal altogether. 

    You will start and end your trek via Jomsom, the capital of the Mustang district of Dhawalagiri zone. Passing along the ancient salt caravan route, you will reach Lo Manthang, situated at a height of 3,840 meters. This area is divided into Upper and Lower Mustang.

    The best time for Upper Mustang Trek is from May to October. Due to minimal rainfall in this region, monsoon is also a good time to visit. However, we do not recommend trekking in winter due to cold temperatures. 

    Best Features

    • Explore the forbidden kingdom of Upper Mustang
    • Experience the rich culture of Thakali and Tibetan Gurung
    • Witness – 10,000 sky caves
    • Witness ancient cave civilizations and sky burials.
    •  Visit the oldest monasteries of Upper Mustang Valley.
    • Monsoon treks to Mustang – a rain shadow region 
    • Visit Muktinath's sacred shrine for Hindus and Buddhists

    To Remember

    Being a restricted area, you cannot trek in the Upper Mustang alone. 

    So, independent treks are out of the question. You will need at least two trekkers to acquire the Restricted Area Permit (RAP). You will also need a guide to trek with you in Upper Mustang. 

    Due to its elevated landscape, it gets windy in Upper Mustang mid-day, making the trek extra challenging. (Complete Upper Mustang Trek Guide)

    Recent Review of Upper Mustang

    Manaslu Circuit Trek
    Trekkers gradually hike on the snow routes of the Manaslu Circuit Trek

    Manaslu Circuit Trek is one of the most secluded Nepal treks leading to the border area of Nepal and China. It has been gaining steady popularity among trekkers but has yet to be unspoiled and is off-beat compared to other trekking trails in Nepal. 

    Upon this trek you will not only see the untouched beauty of the rugged landscapes of Manaslu region and its rich biodiversity, but will also encounter the local cultures of the ancient Tsum and Nubri communities.

    Although the trek is planned for 12 days, we can extend it to 18 days if you prefer an off-beat side trek to Tsum Valley.

    Manaslu Circuit is strenuous as compared to other teahouse trekking in Nepal. You can drive up to the trailhead to minimize the cost of domestic flights and delays.

    (18 Reasons to Chose the Manaslu Circuit Trek)

    Some parts of the trail are rocky and steep; you must be extra careful when traversing these paths. There are also landslides blocking the route during monsoon, which may make the journey more challenging.

    To Remember

    Like Annapurna Base Camp treks and Everest Base Camp treks, the trails of the Annapurna Circuit trek are mostly crowded in spring and fall. You will likely develop altitude sickness due to the higher elevation at which you will be walking (5,000 m); hence, proper acclimatization is necessary. 

    Trekking during monsoon seasons from June to August is also risky due to poor road conditions resulting from landslides.
