If you want to experience the Remote Himalayan Trekking, you must trek to Upper Mustang. It is the most adventurous and beautiful region which is explored by far less trekkers than any other trekking destination. The experience of incredible landscapes and sceneries, Tibetan Buddhist cultures and wonderful mountains makes this trip iconic. Exceptionally less explored but superbly wonderful region, Upper Mustang is a region that simply overwhelms travelers with its magnificent simplicity.

Walking on the rugged and coarse trail along the incredible landscape and beautiful villages is a pure mixture of adventure and culture. As a restricted region, Upper Mustang charges a high royalty but the money is highly worth paying. The experience is something that money can’t buy. It’s the real adventure of life time that takes you to a civilization that is completely untouched by modernism. You will traverse the trail up and down the hills and passes that challenges your stamina, endurance, and enthusiasm.

Take yourself on a journey that brings you an inspiring lesson for the life. The spiritual and cultural adventure in Upper Mustang region is simply an iconic trip that truly resonates to the spirit of adventurers with the taste of culture and spirituality.

NOTE: It is recommended that you should arrive in Kathmandu a day earlier before you start your trek (if you do not have a day tour of Kathmandu scheduled). And If you have scheduled Kathmandu day tour you should arrive two days prior from the actual day from trekking.

If you are able to arrive a day earlier, it will be best for you as you will get some time to rest, know about the trekking you are doing, get info about the trekking routes, and you get time to buy trekking equipment if necessary. Similarly, if you can manage a day or two after trekking. In case of any flight delay from Lukla to Kathmandu due to different circumstances you will have lower chance of missing your international flights. Adding some extra days beside actual trekking days will help you enjoy your trip to Nepal to the fullest without having to worry about any preparations, any flight delays, and missing international flights.
