Trip Highlights

Scenic flight from Kathmandu to Pokhara, Jomsom than back to Kathmandu after trek, Kali Gandali Valley and it’s gorge which is deepest in the world, Classic Tibetan Kagbeni village. Kagbeni is one of the beautiful villages in the word, Lo-manthang, the wall city and centuries old Tibetan Buddhsit Monasteries, Chhungsi Cave, 1200 years old Ghar Gompa, Khanpa Caves in Chhoser Valley, Trans Himalaya which is said to be under the rain shadow in the world and Give you the feeling and experience that you are in Tibet. 


Nepal Government Department of Immigration started to issue only a small number of special trekking permits since 1992. Before 1992 the region was banned to visit for foreign travelers. Upper Mustang is a perfect destination where generous scope is offered for visiting Buddhists Monasteries. This semi autonomous and heavily Tibetan influenced region was described by Tillman as fascinatingly ugly country, the more fascinating for being so little known" indeed, the trek to Lo Manthang is through an almost treeless barren landscape, a steep rocky trail up and down hill, mind-blowing panorama of Nilgiri, Annapurna, Dhaulagiri and several others peaks make your trek spectacular with lifetime experience. Trek begins from Jomsom - reachable by a scenic flight and accessible by walk from Ghorepani-Poon Hill-Tatopani-Jomsom and Kali Gandaki Valley trekking route.

Mustang is one of those few places in the planet that has survived a very close-niche life and that region was, until recently, was a forbidden land for outsides till 1992. This loneliness and isolation contributed the people of Mustang to conserve their life style and cultural heritage that remained almost unaffected for centuries. Hidden behind the high Himalaya ranges, Mustang is filled with handsome trekking zones. The high desert rain shadow of Himalayas receives very little rainfall making this region dry and parched, similar to the bordering Tibetan Plateau. The Lo Manthang, capital of Upper Mustang, lies in the remote Himalaya desert behind the Dhaulagiri and Annapurna mountain ranges, is an old traditional Tibetan Village, with rare medieval Buddhist arts and exotic culture. We, Wilderness Excursion offers perfect budget package trips to Mustang in most competitive trip cost and develop tailor made itinerary to meet your time frame for Nepal holiday.

Best Time to Travel:

We have two best seasons in the year like summer, autumn and spring, summer and Autumn best month is June to December and spring best month is mid February to May this three seasons are the best seasons for this trek because of the weather is fine and warm with perfect views but the nights are chilly and can drop to freezing level in higher altitude. Winter season is close for Mustang Trek the only problem is cold and lot of show. Trekking in summer season will be one of the best because of sangria-la. The trekking routes are not crowded like a spring and autumn.

Trek to Upper Mustang


We had an experience that we will never forget with Domi and the team at Eco Tourism Adventure. Domi was incredibly helpful pre-trek as we peppered him with questions, always very well informed, quick to respond and so polite. Then Kishor's big, smiling welcome to Kathmandu set the tone for a trip that was filled with laughter, friendship and the experience of awe as we made our way through Upper Mustang. Bhim, was (and is) the perfect guide, fun, knowledgeable, supportive and always looking for ways to add something special to each day. Ngima too, was more than just an incredible porter, he soon became a friend as we all sang our way up the passes, in between heavy breaths. Nayeli and I could not recommend Eco Tourism Adventure more highly to anyone looking to trek in the Himalayas and experience the life, people and nature of this beautiful region.
