Outline Itinerary ( 17 Days ) Expand all +
Once you land at Kathmandu Airport (TIA), you will be led to your hotel orientation program at 5:00 pm and at evening, welcome dinner.
Explore the historical sites of Kathmandu from centuries and experience the classical charm of the patrimony. We'll go to the four incredible sites in Katmandu listed as UNESCO-listed UNESCO cultural heritage sites [with 489 temples, 15 shivalayas and 12 jiotirlinga shrines], Boudhanath stupa, the huge Mandala Sanctuary of the eighth century, Swoyambhunath Temple, the Kathmandu Valley stupa of the thirteenth century, and Patan Durbar Place (the Royal Palac Square of the 12th century). We 're going to visit the four amazing places.
Pokhara can be reached by two options: private jeep or by bus. The costs are very comparable anyway. So, whether or not you want to visit the countries depends on your decision. If yes, the best option is the private jeep. You will fly to Pokhara otherwise.
Kathmandu is approximately 200 km from Pokhara and is approximately 7–8 hours from the hotel. Traffic jams often delay the planned arrival time. The experiences are nevertheless valuable. .
One of the most attractive flights in Nepal is the flight to Jomsom. With a view from unbelievable moundland, especially when between the summits of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri, this 20-minute flight will surprise you. That's amazing views. You'll have lunch and ample drinks before you go to the Kagbeni once you arrive at Jomsom.
There is a control point in Kagbeni that leads beyond a steep footpath towards Tangbe. In an hour, the aridness of the Mustang Area will be added. The road passes the high cliffs, gazing into Northern Mustang's breathtaking views. As you continue your journey through the Tangbe, the black and brown colors of sand and rocks will become familiar.Show more...
The path to Ghyakar takes us from Chele towards the Dajori La pass (3.735 meters) with views of Nilgiris and Tilicho 's magnificent peaks. A humble village of Samar with a monastery in Nepalese style can be found down the pass. The route goes across the Samakyung Khola and Ihuwa Khola canyon to the dirt road to syangmochen. The view from Dhaulagiri is outstanding.
We will then go to our destination Geling through a line of Chortens via the Syangmochen La Pass. Geling is a peaceful, lovely village to explore with a monastery.Show more...
We'll go over the farms and the meadows from Gheling. The views are rising significantly as you move forward. Shortly before we get to the Nyi La Pass, a smiley face is drawn on a rock. Perhaps the smile tried to convince the walkers that in the next few days something spectacular is expected. When we reach Ghami, we'll meet some of the amazing mani walls and the Upper Mustang chortens.
The trail climbs up to the Choya La Pass through a long manic wall in Ghami and then descends to the Tsarang, dotted randomly with numerous Chortens. It's worth visiting the Tsarang monastery.Show more...
A ravine that unwinds the wonders of the Annapurna I, Nilgira and the Tilicho rivers, climbs up from the Tsarang. About two hours later, we reach Sungda Chorten, which is beautiful and then climb up to the Lo La Pass (3,850 m). The exotic palaces, white houses and red Lo Manthang monasteries are visible from here. The path then goes straight down to the Lo Manthang.
Lo Manthang is an exceptional town separated by its 8.5 m high wall from the rest of the world. There are mysterious caves and palaces within this city centuries which appear at a glance inexplorable. But a few people have been exploring these ancient territories. The typical Tibetan-style Buddhist monasteries tell us that Lo Mantang 's history is somewhat tied to Tibet.
Throughout the day, we will visit the Namgyal Monastery with pictures of Buddha and his disciples in its interior. Later, we go to Thingkar, a palace used by lo Manthang Royalties in the summer of 1953.
It's a very long day, with frequent ascents and descents. There are several points behind the Chogo La, with views of the left valley. But you'll be in the new world after that. The trail continues down the Chogo La to Ghar Gompa, which is one of the best gompas in the entire area of Mustang. Now you'll climb up to Mui La, where the dry mustang is best viewed. The path goes down abruptly into a beautiful Drakmar village. .
Initially the path winds its way around red cliffs and Drakmar's caves. Then a long Mani wall stretches to Ghami up to the steep bluff. We'll be at the Nyi La a little while from now. It is a few kilometers from here to the Syangmochen. In Syangmochen there are a couple of comfortable lodgings and the views are not misleading.
From Syangmochen, the trail goes down the same path as before to the Chhusang. The road descends mostly, so you can easily get to Chhusang.
We follow the other course towards the temple of Muktinat, the Hindus sacred temple, rather than on the same road as Kagbeni. This temple is complex and it is necessary for the pilgrimage through many small shrines to finally see Lord Vishnu's man-like golden statue in the main temple. Pay heed to areas where non-Hindus are forbidden. There are also 108 carved taps in which all the sins of life are to be washed away. This temple is popular in Nepal both artistically and religiously.
Muktinath is an interesting day that takes you through the beautiful Jharkot village to the spectacular Jomsom market. We will explore the marketplace once we reach Jomsom, and then check-in for the night.

Passport information, pictures, and route information and valid hiking visa are required. The licenses may only be issued by the Ministry of Immigration in Kathmandu or Pokhara.- Himalayan Social Journey will take care of your Trekking Permits.

2. Annapurna Conservation area Permit: NPR 2260 for foreigner and NPR 226 for SAARC country. There are no limits days for ACAP permits.
Trekking Grade: Strenuous
The trail takes a maximum of 7 hours each day. Also, the complete trek finishes in around 15 days or less from the day of trekking, which infers that this trek is simple to make, based on the length of the trek.
However, you must be aware that walking for 7 hours is not a joke. It's quite difficult and frustrating, too, but at the end of the journey, you'll be greeted with the unparalleled beauty of the secret Himalayas, and this is worth every effort you 'd take to get there.
Preparing for the Trek
You need to train your body and brace yourself for 8-10 hours a day in all weather conditions, to walk on a rugged terrain of 8-20 kg. You're going to walk both below and above the average altitude of Nepal. Trekking under the hot sun and the chilly cold nights is also likely.
Training makes the journey less complicated, safer and more pleasant. So before you go on a trekking experience, you need to spend longer and more effort training. The best way is to get to the top stairs that take one or two minutes. Till you puff, you can do 10 sets. By putting on a backpack from 5 Kg to 20 Kg, you can add strength. Your heart and lungs will become healthy by doing so. One thing you have to remember is that before you start the training program you still have to warm up and stretch. Cycling running, jogging or hill climbing may be another aerobic exercises. Or you can choose any exercise in the aerobic range (70% of your maximum heart rate).Aerobic activity protects the heart and reduces the risk of stroke and heart attack. It also strengthens your lungs. It enhances breathing, endocrine, muscle tones and strengthens bones.
Best Time to Trek to Upper Mustang
Summer is not an ideal time to hike in Upper Mustang, as the moonsoon overlaps with the Summer and makes the trail muddy and difficult to get across.
Winter season is also very cold. In the day time , the temperature falls to about – 10oC; it goes beyond -20oC during the night. Therefore, in winter travel seems quite impossible.
Autumn is perfect for hiking, however, but trekking in the spring is strongly recommended, as one of the biggest Mustangis-Tiji festivals is a chance to enjoy .
Risk of Altitude Sickness while on Upper Mustang Trek
While in the trek to Upper Mustang altitude is not a big problem. During the trekking period you are always under 4000 meter, which means you feel less likely than you are to experience severe complications by altitude, even if you feel Altitude Sickness (AS) symptoms such as headache, nausea , or vomiting.
However, you need to be careful about the high altitude acclimatization techniques. Don't go for it if you don't feel like going. The disease of altitude may be fatal.
Meals and accommodation in Mustang Trekking Trails
At all stops along the upper Mustang track there are many tea-houses. There is therefore no need to carry tents. A small number of tea houses with a friendly staff are available for clean and simple service, while tea houses also provide delicious local food.
However, during the Tiji festival, you have to book beforehand for accommodation and food. You can also carry your own tents. Costs range from $4 to $6 on the trekking route. In addition, the price of a single meal is roughly the same.
Communication during Upper Mustang Trek
For mountain trekkers, communication is most critical. Some places have a strong communication network and may not have a place during Upper Mustang trek. Some places also have a satellite telephone. The trek is linked by NTC and Ncell both. Thus, NTC and Ncell number are available for our guides and porters.
Electricity and Connectivity
You will be staying Overnight in the tea houses during your trek. These are small lodges with a common area and a cabin. You can have your food or charge electronics in the community, sometimes use wireless internet and chat with walkers.
Hot water and electricity do not occur in every tea houses. Showering is a luxury and shouldn't usually be done anymore at an altitude of 3,500 m, because warming will be hard when you take a shower again.
You would need to pay additional for all the above items (douches, hot water , electricity and wifi).To improve your connectivity, carry your phone to the Nepal SIM, you'll get more than you'd think (GPRS/EDGE speed). Village electricity could be perfect during your stay. Villages above 4000 m tend to be the latter. Tea houses can have the potential to charge you either from solar sources or from a battery bank.but it is most wise to either have your own or not depend on electronic devices.
Drinking water while on Trek
Planning to have at least two liters of water when trekking every day is a smart way to start. Filling up water is quick. Taps in, out or in guesthouses mean that there are plenty of places to fill your bottles and/or your water bladders.This could be where you stay, a lunch stop, or a shared public tap used by locals. Use an efficient sterilization method to make sure your water is safe and not contaminated in anyway.Bottled water is available to buy throughout the trek, but we would advise against this for a number of reasons.You do not need them if you use sterilization method. Environment concerns are there and also buying water is expensive up in the mountains.
Insuring your safety
We suggest taking out an insurance plan for your individual accountability, accidents and illnesses during the service.Regarding the type of activity, you may be asked to show a certificate of insurance for help and support, sanitation and search. This service is private and not free in Nepal, the helicopter will not take off until it is convinced to pay for the insurance.
There will be two people accommodated in each room for the duration of the tour. If you prefer private accommodation, you'll find the option for "single supplement" of USD 250. Important: Please note that during the trek there are some lodges which won't have sufficient rooms to provide private accommodation. So, even if you purchase single supplement you will end up sharing a room for some days of the trek.
Carrying Extra money
It’s difficult to give an exact amount of money that you should bring. Costs will vary according to how much you want to spend for shopping and where and what meals (lunch & dinner) you want to eat. Trekkers find that around $20 (for lunch & dinner) a day is reasonable for the trekking days.
As for the tips, A general rule of thumb for tipping is USD 25 for the guide per traveller and USD 25 for porter between two travellers if you are fully satisfied with their service. So we suggest you allocate a minimum of USD 50 for Tipping. This is just a guideline and you may tip whatever / how much you think is appropriate for the services rendered which made your trek a memorable one
Luggage per one person
For the trek, we'll have one porter for two people as per group size. The porter will carry 10-15 kg per person luggage during the trek. You need to carry your daypack to keep your personal belongings such as wallet, camera, water bottle, dry snack, headlight, gadgets etc.
