The ‘Upper Mustang’, popularly identified as the Last Forbidden Kingdom, lies immediately north of the main Himalayan range of Nepal at the average altitude of 4000m. This sacred terrain situated in the rain shadow of Dhaulagiri occupies the northern two-thirds of Mustang district of Dhaulagiri zone. Starting from Kaagbeni (south), this desolate valley in the Trans-Himalayan area extends till the Tibetan border (north). It’s ironical that the name given to this arid region beyond the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri massif is ‘Mustang’, the literal meaning of which is “Fertile Land”. This former Kingdom of Lo sharing a part of Tibetan plateau was made accessible to tourists only since the year 1992.  Upper Mustang is also known as the capital of the former Kingdom of Lo Manthang.

 

The Upper Mustang trek allows you to experience arid and dry desert-like landscape, weather-beaten cliffs, colorful rocks, moraine valley, deep gorges, snow-crested peaks, glaciers, alpine valleys, barren ridges and century old cave residing higher up in the rocks. This Upper Mustang hike also renders opportunity to experience the grand view of Annapurna, Nilgiri, and Dhaulagiri while standing on the various passes en route that range from 3000m to 4000m. This steep, rocky Upper Mustang trekking trail is also said to have been one of the major trade routes, used by salt caravans while crossing the Himalayas between Tibet and Nepal.  Moreover, planning Upper Mustang walk also offer a one time opportunity to spot fortresses, palaces and cave hermitages, scenery of the Tibetan plateau and Kali Gandaki, the deepest gorge in the world.

 

Nevertheless, this trip to Upper Mustang not only offers geographical beauty, but also introduces you to the old Buddhist Kingdom of Mustang called Lo where people still follow Tibetan Buddhism and pure Tibetan Buddhist culture, language and architectures that has remained unchanged since the 14th century. You can spot Tibetan style village comprising of whitewashed houses tucked with firewood on the roof. You will also be greeted with a number of colorful village monasteries (Lo Gekar monastery built in the 8th century by famous Tibetan magician Guru Rinpoche and Thungchen Gompa built in the 15th century) and other ancient palaces along with primordial society that has remained unaffected by transformation for centuries. If you are lucky, a visit to the royal palace situated in the city square of Lo Manthang offers exceptional opportunity to meet Lo Manthang’s former King, Jigme Dorjee Palbar Bista, who lost his title in 2008 after Nepal became a republic nation, and his family that is still highly respected by locals.

 

Another interesting thing about the trek to Upper Mustang is the opportunity to get closer to the tradition and culture of people belonging to Thakali and Gurung communities. Their Warm hospitality is one of the reasons why trekkers prefer to plan their next trip to Upper Mustang.

 

The Upper Mustang trek starts from Jomsom that makes its way upstream partly walking in the riverbed until the trail reaches Kaagbeni, which is the last settlement, before entering the restricted area of Upper Mustang. On entering the area of Upper Mustang, you will be bestowed with a close up view of the variety of exclusive landscapes, primitive society that has not undergone any kind of changes for centuries and other exceptional opportunities that you will probably get to experience only once in your entire life.

Note: Minimum 2 pax required or single suppliment of USD650

Later that day (if possible) or the following day, a meeting is scheduled at our head office to brief you the details of your upcoming trek. Here, you will also be introduced to your trekking guides and Sherpas. If your flight arrives on time, a welcome dinner is also scheduled for you at one of the most popular local restaurant where you can enjoy Nepali food along with a glimpse of cultural music and ethnic dance. On request, dinner can also be postponed to the following day (as per your convenience).

Day 02: Sightseeing tour of UNESCO World Heritage site in Kathmandu and trek preparation (1,300m/4,264ft)

Kathmandu, the capital city of Nepal, itself offers a wide range of unique historical, natural and cultural sites. You will be guided to some of these sites for the purpose of sightseeing. The sites include the World heritage sites like Kathmandu Durbar Square – one of the most important historical structure that offers eye appealing architectural wonders, the Pashupatinath temple - a Hindu shrine dedicated to Lord Shiva (the lord that holds the power of destruction), Swyambhunath (Monkey Temple) and the Boudhanath Stupa – dedicated to Lord Buddha. However, you also have an option to skip one of these sites and visit another World Heritage site, ‘Patan Durbar Square’ along with Mahabouddha Temple, Kumbeshwor Temple, Krishna Temple and Golden Temple that simply offers some of the historical masterpieces to the connoisseurs of art. After spending 3-4 hours observing these beautiful sites, we will meet one more time to finalize your clothing and trekking gears (sleeping bag, down jacket and trekking boots). The evening will be spent in Kathmandu.

Day 3: Drive from Kathmandu to Pokhara (820m/2,690ft) 7 hours drive

Our guides will come to pick you up at your hotel and escort you to the bus station from where we catch our bus to Pokhara. From the bus station, we head towards the west of Kathmandu valley to catch Prithvi Highway and then continue the journey towards west till Pokhara. The bus will stop twice on the way; once for the breakfast and then for lunch. This winding highway along the Trisuli River offers a spectacular view of mountains, rivers, jungle, waterfalls as well as hamlets situated higher up on the hills and amphitheater-shaped terraced field flaunting different seasonal crops. On reaching Pokhara, you check into the hotel, freshen up, explore the city and in the evening stroll around the lakeside. We stay overnight at a lodge in Pokhara.

Day 4: Fly from Pokhara to Jomsom and trek to Kegbeni. (2,800m/9,186ft) 30 minutes flight and 3 hours walk

After having breakfast, you will be transferred to Pokhara airport to board an early morning flight to the district headquarter of the Mustang - Jomsom. Passing through the world’s deepest gorge, this scenic flight to Jomsom offers a spectacular view of mountains like Dhaulagiri, Machhapuchhre (Fishtail) and the Annapurna range.

 

On arrival to Jomsom, you will meet the rest of the crew awaiting your arrival. The necessary pre-trek preparation is done at Jomsom. Shortly after this, the ultimate walk starts on crossing the suspension bridge at Jomsom which further leads towards the northern valley of Kaligandaki following the trail along the Kaligandaki River. The trail offers a stunning views of snow capped mountains like Tukuche, Nilgiri and Dhaulagiri to the north, while the southern part of the trail features the entire Annapurna range.

 

After 4 hours of walking we finally reach the Kaagbeni village (a gateway to upper Mustang), which is located at one of the major, era-old Trans-Himalayan salt trade path to Tibet. Kaagbeni is also located at the junction of two rivers - Kak Khola (descending from Muktinath) and Mustang Khola, and from here the river is named Kali Gandaki.  In the evening you can take a stroll around the interesting clustered settlement of people, Buddhist monasteries and some Hindu temples in Kaagbeni. The night is spent at a lodge in Kaagbeni.

You will also be blessed with a glowing view of Nilgiri. After crossing several ridges and a stream along the trail, we now leave both Kali Gandaki valley and Manangi culture behind and enter Chele and the Tibetan culture of Lo. This place offers a perfect picture of Tibetan settlement. The night is spent at a lodge in Chele.

Day 06: Trek to Geling (3,440m/11,286ft) 5-6 hours walk

After having breakfast, we start our usual day trek, which first hikes up to Taklam La Pass, goes through even terrain to observe Yakawa Kang, Tilicho Peak and Damodar hill. We further walk towards the village of Samar from where the ridge descends into the large gorge, passes chorten and make our way towards Shyangmochen walking through the beautiful valley crossing cool streams and juniper trees. Shyangmochen is a small settlement with a few tea shops. Nearby Shyangmochen, you can also enjoy Rangbyung which is a cave that contains stalagmites in the form of Chorten. This is also considered one of the holiest places in Mustang. From here the trail descends to Geiling, which offer the pleasant view of the extensive barley field. The night is spent at a lodge in Geiling.

Day 07: Trek to Charang (3,490m/11,450ft) 5-6 hours walk

After having breakfast, the trail turns west and continues through the driest part of Mustang, which further passes through the fields that are below Tama Gaon. From here we take a turn towards north to reach Nyi La. Here, the trail steeply descends to Ghyami. Ghyami is the third largest settlement surrounded by large barren fields in the Lo region. On crossing Ghyami River, the trail makes its way along the Mani wall (a sacred wall made by prayer stones) and from the end of the wall the trail takes an eastward turn towards the village of Charang, which is a large spread village situated on the top of the Charang Chu canyon. On the eastern side of this village lie Dzong (fortress) and a Red Gompa (monastery) that exhibits an assortment of exceptional statues and Thangkas. The night is spent at a lodge in Charang.

Day 08: Trek to Lo-Manthang (3,730m/12,237ft) 5-6 hours walk

Before heading toward Lo Manthang, we spend some time exploring the Charang village and the Red Gompa. Then we climb up the valley to explore isolated Chorten, which separates the area of Charang and Lo Manthang. As the trail climbs up to the windy pass of Lo, the trail broadens eventually allowing you the very first glimpse of the walled city of Lo Manthang. This city has only one entrance on the northeast corner of the city; therefore, following the only option we circumambulate the wall to get to the entrance. The night is spent at a lodge in Lo Manthang.

Day 09: Explore Day at Lomanthang (acclimatization day) (3,700m/12,136)

After having breakfast, without wasting our time we start exploring the Lo Manthang.

Other attractions of this area are the ceremonial King’s Palace (a 4 storey building at the center of the city), Tingkhar (a settlement of around 40 houses and the last village to the northwest of Lo Manthang) as well as the panoramic view of towering mountain and pure Tibetan culture. If you are lucky, you can also get an audience with the king or the queen. The night will be spent at a lodge in Lo Manthang.

Day 10: Lo-Mangthang to Drakmar (3,942m/12,933ft) 6-7 hrs walk

The trail becomes very windy during the day. Therefore, after breakfast at Lo Manthang, without wasting much time, we start the day earlier than usual. The trail heading southwest passes through the irrigated field before Gekar and then climbs towards the cairn on the pass. At this point you can experience the highest altitude of this trek. From the pass the trail descends to Ghar Gompa, which is another major attraction of this trekking. In the Gompa, we spend some time enjoying the exhibition of paintings and artifacts. After exploring the area of Ghar Gompa, we finally head towards Drakmar for overnight stay.

Day 11: Trek to Ghiling (3,806m/12,484ft) 5-6 hour

Trail during the day gets very windy and dusty; therefore, we start early continuing our southward walk. The landscape around feels like a desert. We pass a number of caves during on the way, long Mani wall and the pass before descending to the Ghami village. From here, we first walk up to the Ghiling hill and then down to the Ghiling village.

The night will be spent in a lodge in Ghiling.

Upper Mustang Trek Information

Travel Insurance
You should have travel insurance to be adequately protected in terms of insurance. A travel insurance policy that should cover cancellation, injury, death, lost baggage, theft, liability, medical treatment and expenses is strongly recommended. Make sure the insurance covers all the activities that you will be undertaking during your stay in Nepal. If a client becomes ill, all hospital expenses, doctors' fees and repatriation costs are the client's responsibility. If you are injured and unable to travel, you can ask for a rescue helicopter from a remote area only if you have definite proof you can pay for it. They pay a cash deposit to the helicopter operator and collect the money from you if you have been rescued. Be sure your policy specifically covers those.

Health and Fitness
We strongly recommend you to consult the doctor before planning your holidays. You should obtain professional advice from a travel clinic or your local GP about which vaccinations to have before you arrive in Nepal. Your doctor will advise current inoculation requirements. If a doctor has recommended against travel or indicated travel may be inconvenient then kindly inform us of the details. On all trekking and exploratory trips technical experience is not required, hiking/camping experience is an advantage, but by far the most important thing is a positive attitude and a generous amount of determination. We run regular first aid courses for our all trekking guides and Sherpa helpers.
