Trip Overview

Upper Mustang Trekking Overview

The Upper Mustang Trekking is an extraordinary journey that offers a captivating blend of cultural exploration and breathtaking landscapes in the remote region of Nepal. Nestled between the towering peaks of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges, Upper Mustang is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for trekkers seeking a unique adventure. This trek takes you through the ancient kingdom of Mustang, which was inaccessible to foreigners until 1992, preserving its distinctive Tibetan culture and architecture. The trail leads you through arid desert-like terrain, adorned with eroded cliffs, deep gorges, and enchanting rock formations. The highlight of the trek is the captivating Lo Manthang, a walled city resembling a labyrinth of whitewashed buildings with ornate monasteries, stupas, and palaces, offering a glimpse into Mustang's rich history. The journey offers a diverse range of landscapes, from barren landscapes to lush valleys. Along the way, you'll encounter traditional villages where locals welcome you with warm hospitality, providing insight into their unique way of life, Buddhism-influenced customs, and vibrant festivals. The panoramic views of Nilgiri, Annapurna, and Dhaulagiri peaks as you traverse high-altitude passes are simply awe-inspiring. The trek generally spans around 10 to 14 days, with the best seasons being spring and autumn. Due to its remote location, trekkers require a special permit to enter Upper Mustang, adding to the exclusivity of the experience. Accommodation ranges from basic tea houses to camping, adding an adventurous touch.

Conclusion and Summary

In summary, the Upper Mustang Trekking is an expedition that marries natural beauty with cultural immersion. It's a rare chance to witness a region untouched by modernization, where time seems to have stood still, all while relishing the grandeur of the Himalayas. Whether you're a seasoned trekker or an adventurer at heart, this trek promises an unforgettable journey through a hidden gem of Nepal.

  • Ancient Buddhist monasteries
  • Insight into the Tibetan lifestyle
  • A day at the tourist hub – Pokhara


After an early breakfast, we travel to Pokhara on a tourist bus. The journey will take around 6 to 7 hours. On our way, we can see the picturesque Trishuli and Marsyangdi rivers. Pokhara is a beautiful river valley known for its panoramic views of Annapurna and Machapuchare in the north, Dhaulagiri in the west, Manaslu and Lamjung Himal in the east. Pokhara is a tourist paradise complete with the most modern comforts.

  • Overnight stay at Silver Oaks Inn (room with attached bathroom)

We take an early morning flight to Jomsom. During the early morning, the weather is the clearest, and you will see spectacular mountain views – including two eight-thousanders mountains – Dhaulagiri and Annapurna. The landscape below is absolutely breathtaking.

We land in Jomsom – the district headquarter of Mustang. The trekking starts from Jomsom. The route follows a pleasant trail up the arid valley of the Kali Gandaki River to the fort of Kagbeni, an ancient trade post with a Buddhist monastery. Kagbeni is just south of the restricted area of the Upper Mustang.

  • Overnight stay at Hotel New Annapurna (room with attached bathroom)
  • Included meals (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)

The area above Kagbeni is called Upper Mustang, and you cannot enter the upper Mustang without a permit. There is a check post at the gateway, where we register our documents and trek forward.

We will start our trek early in the morning, along the eastern bank of the Kali Gandaki River to Chuksang, to avoid the heavy Mustang wind in the afternoon. On the way, you will get fantastic views of Mt. Nilgiri glowing orange from the early sun rays. The area beside the river can be windy with dust all over the air, so you will need sunglasses and perhaps a face mask to cover your nose and mouth.

You will then pass by the Mustang’s unique red sandstone pillars and rock formations, formed by thousands of years of erosion, and reach Tangbe Village. Tangbe is a pretty village with red and whitewashed houses, picturesque apple orchards, and barley fields. Then we follow a relatively narrow canyon to Chele, a small town along a ridge. The views from Chele are other-worldly. We are sure you will not get similar views from any other parts of the world.

  • Overnight at Mustang Guest House.
  • Included meals (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)

This day’s trek will be considerably challenging as we will be gaining around 800m in height. From Chele, we climb a steep spur and then continue up a steep canyon to Eklo Bhatti and ascend to the Taklam La (3,625 m/11,940 ft), a high pass. We cross the Taklam La pass to reach Samar. 

We can catch beautiful views of Mount Nilgiri from Samar. This is also a usual place to stop horses and mule caravans for rest. From Samar, we descend to a large gorge past Rangchyung Chorten – painted red, black, yellow, and white, and trek ahead to reach Syangboche. 

  • Overnight stay at Hotel Nilgiri (room with attached bathroom)
  • Included meals (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)

The day begins with an ascent to another pass – the Yamda La (3,845m/12,655 ft) Pass, through an astonishing desert landscape and a few remote settlements. Again, The trail climbs up to a large valley and then descends to a wide barley field at Gelling. The mud and stone houses at Gelling are painted white and ochre, just like in Mustang.

From Geling, we reach a settlement – Tama Gaun and climb a pass known as the Nyi La (4015 m/13,205ft). We will be descending from this pass and trek ahead to Ghami.

  • Overnight stay at Hotel Lho Ghami (room with attached bathroom)
  • Included meals (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)

This day’s trek takes you through the driest part of Mustang. However, the heavenly countryside perspective you gain compensates for a difficult climb. Finally, we arrive at Tsarang, an extensive spread-out town with around 1000 inhabitants.

  • Overnight stay at Hotel Lumbini (room with attached bathroom)
  • Included meals (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)

Starting on flat land, we ascend over yet another pass – Lo La Pass, from where you can enjoy the delightful views of the valley below – including Lo Mathang. We descend from Lo La Pass and enter Lo Mathang from the north.

  • Overnight at Hotel Shangri La (room with attached bathroom)
  • Included meals (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)

Today will be the day for you to explore the historical Lo Manthang – a walled city with around 150 houses. This ancient city dates back to the 1390s approximately.

Lo Manthang was the walled capital of the Kingdom of Lo since its founding in 1380 by Ame Pal. The village is best known for its tall whitewashed mud-brick walls, gompas, and the royal palace.

This palace is a nine-cornered, five-story structure built around 1400. It is the oldest existing structure with such architecture. This town is also home to four major temples – Jampa Gompa (Jampa Lhakhang), Thubchen Gompa, Chodey Gompa, and Choprang Gompa. Jampa Gompa is the oldest and is also known as God’s house. Similarly, Choprang Gompa is also known as New Gompa. The Nepal government opened Upper Mustang for foreigners in 1992, but, even today, tourism to Upper Mustang remains limited.

  • Overnight stay at Hotel Shangri La (room with attached bathroom)
  • Included meals (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)

From Lo Manthang, we head south towards Kagbeni. However, we will not take the same route we took to arrive at Lo Manthang. As our journey passes through Drakmar, we will also make sure we head to the famous Ghar Monastery decorated with beautiful wall paint. Our trek continues until we reach Ghami.

  • Overnight stay at Hotel Lho Ghami (room with attached bathroom)
  • Included meals (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)

We trek through the remote and arid landscape carefully, enjoying the magical views all around the path. You will be ascending to reach Chemi La and Yiy La passes and then descend steeply to reach Geling. After Geling, the descent eases as you reach Syangboche, but our destination lies further at Samar. Samar is a Tibetan-style village, complete with mani walls, monastery, and terraced fields.

  • Overnight stay at a lodge
  • Included meals (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)

From Samar, we join the regular trekking trail to Chhusang. The trails lead to the Kali Gandaki riverbed. We cross this river through a rock tunnel and trek forward to reach Chhusang.

  • Overnight stay at Hotel Braka (room with attached bathroom)
  • Included meals (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)

Today you will be crossing Gyu La Pass (4077m) as the trek follows the world-famous Annapurna circuit, but you will cross the pass from a different direction. From this pass, you can see several majestic Himalayan peaks extending northwards into Tibet before you, and as you look behind, you can see the Annapurna range. 

The trail passes through several ancient villages before reaching Muktinath – a common Hindu and Buddhist holy site. Buddhists call Muktinath ‘Chumig Gyatsa’, which in Tibetan means “A Hundred Waters”. The walled Muktinath temple complex houses a Buddhist monastery, several Hindu shrines, 108 bathing spouts, and an eternal flame.

  • Overnight stay at Hotel Town House Muktinath (room with attached bathroom)
  • Included meals (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)

You have reached your final day on the trekking trails. We descend to Jharkot and Khingar- where there are beautiful monasteries that you can explore. We gradually lose elevation as we join Jomsom, which sits on the bottom of Kali Gandaki River Valley. Jomsom market area is a huge change from the serene trails and remote villages we visited.

  • Overnight stay at Hotel Himalayan Inn (room with attached bathroom)
  • Included meals (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)

We bid goodbye to Mustang and catch an early morning flight over the southern Kali Gandaki Valley to Pokhara. Then you can either fly back to Kathmandu or spend a day exploring Pokhara – a famous tourist hub in Nepal.

  • Overnight stay at Silver Oaks Inn (room with attached bathroom)
  • Included meals (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)

We depart on a tourist bus for a return to Kathmandu. It’s a 200 km route that first follows the Marsyangdi River and then the Trishuli River. If you want, you may choose to return by a 25-minute flight (not included in the package). Your trek package completes at Kathmandu.

  • Overnight at your own selected hotel at Kathmandu.

Best seasons to trek to Upper Mustang

The weather is the decisive factor while deciding to trek to Upper Mustang. People trek to Upper Mustang throughout the year, but the trek is easier and more enjoyable in certain seasons. If you are looking for comfort and views, summer and autumn treks are the best. During winter, most residents leave Upper Mustang to avoid cold and snow.

March to May (Spring)

Spring (March-May) is a season when mountain lovers and travel enthusiasts come to trek to Upper Mustang in large numbers. In this season, the climate is mild, with daytime temperatures between 16 to 22 °C Celsius. However, nights are colder as the temperatures can dip to below 0°C Celsius.

June to August (Summer)

June to August is the summer season in Nepal, but it also coincides with the monsoon. However, there is no monsoon in Upper Mustang, which makes summer a perfect season to trek to Upper Mustang. On an August full moon day, the locals at Upper Mustang celebrate a horse festival. The temperature during summer ranges from 16 to 25°C. The night temperature range from -3 to 0°C.

September to November (Autumn)

Like in other parts of Nepal, the autumn skies in the Upper Mustang are clear, providing great views of the mountains, but afternoons can be windy. The daytime temperature range from 12 to 20°C, while the nights are cold at -8 to -4 °C.

December to February (Winter)

The trekking season is over by November. The villagers will migrate to other regions to avoid the cold, so the lodges are closed. In addition, the snow covers the trails making treks almost impossible.


This trek package includes one day of rest in Lo Manthang for proper acclimatization to avoid altitude sickness. Altitude sickness is preventable but can be fatal if you ignore the symptoms.

We have designed our itinerary for slow and steady ascending so the body can adapt to the new altitude. All our trekking leaders/guides have extensive first-aid training and are well-experienced. Our crew will frequently use oximeters to monitor your blood oxygen level at high altitudes. We urge all trekkers to inform their group leaders as soon as the first sign of altitude sickness shows up.

We guarantee that your health will be in reliable hands. Your trek leader or guide will also suggest precautions. The best way is to take your time while trekking and drink plenty of water every day. If altitude sickness is severe, the only cure is to descend immediately. Please note that your group leader has the authority to decide whether to stop the ascent if altitude sickness shows up. It is essential to keep in mind that some people are more vulnerable than others.

Trip Grade: Fitness level, Medical, and Health

This is a moderate-grade trek. The hiking is generally 4 to 7 hrs a day, with regular breaks to appreciate the stunning mountain views. Past hiking experience would be an advantage, but no technical experience or skills are necessary. Trekkers who can hike 5 to 6 hours a day, at a reasonable pace, with a light day pack can complete this trek.

So you should be reasonably fit and prepared for long treks. Trekking at high altitudes is more physically demanding than trekking at lower altitudes.

To enhance stamina, exercising and jogging regularly for a couple of weeks before the trip is a good idea. Please note that the fitter you are, the more you can enjoy the trek. To join our Upper Mustang Trek, you should be in good health and have a positive attitude, self-confidence, and strong determination. Participants with sensitive pre-existing medical conditions such as heart, lung, and blood disease should inform us before booking the trek.

Trekking group/single

We organize group as well as private treks. If you have your group, the bigger your group is, the more discounts you will receive. We can handle all group sizes. For groups of twelve or more, we add an assistant guide. Each trek team will have a guide and porters according to requirements.

A typical trek day

Each day comes with a fresh trekking experience. You will be enjoying the scenery, taking photos, and exploring the local villages. Our experienced, friendly guides/Sherpas will be by your side during the trek. They will also share with you information about the places you will be trekking.

All of our trek team will consist of porters to carry your luggage. However, we expect you to bring with you a small regular-day bag with essential and valuable items. Each day starts with an early morning hot cup of tea/coffee. After a wholesome breakfast, we start the day’s trek around 7 to 8 AM, depending on the duration and nature of the hike.

After trekking for three to four hours, we will serve lunch around midday on the route to the next destination. After lunch, we will be resting for an hour and then continue on the walk. The afternoon walk is shorter – two to three hours. Once we reach our overnight lodge/tea house/tent, we snack on the extra dietary food and explore nearby places until it gets dark.

We serve dinner around 6 to 7 PM. After dinner and before going to bed, you can indulge in friendly conversations and discuss the experience of that day. Your trek leader/guide will brief you about the next day’s plan. After this briefing, you can read books, watch mountaineering videos, or enjoy games like Monopoly and Cards. Most foreigners indulge in learning light Nepalese words from our crew.


During the Trek, you can use internet service at the lodges you will be staying in, but it will come with some extra service charge. You can contact your family and friends via the lodges, but once you reach high altitude, we will be communicating through the phone.

Our Kathmandu office will remain in contact with all the trek teams via the team guide at least once a day to ensure that everything is going on as planned. You can buy a local sim in Kathmandu, but the signals might not be strong enough.

Extra personal expenses

Friendship World Treks is transparent about the cost involved in all its trekking packages. This package does not include food and lodging costs in Kathmandu. Similarly, lunch and dinner in Pokhara (before taking the flight to Jomsom) are not included.

Trekkers need personal spending money for visa processing, travel insurance policy purchase, beverages, snacks, tips to crew members, souvenirs, hot showers, mobile and battery recharge, and mineral water. We recommend you bring cash (major currencies) and exchange for Rupees in Kathmandu. You can also bring your credit card, which you can use to withdraw Nepali Rupees from an ATM (bear in mind your bank may charge for this service).

Electricity for battery recharge and water

Throughout the trek, electricity for the camera and mobile battery recharge is available in all lodges but comes with a service charge.

You can either buy packed mineral water from local lodges and en-route shops or fill your water bottle with boiled water that you can purchase in lodges/teahouses. We also advise you to use water purification pills.

We do not advise you to drink water from rivers, taps, or wells in trek regions because the water might not be drinkable.

Travel Insurance Policy

This trip grade is moderately difficult. It comes with high-altitude trekking risks such as potential altitude sickness and other unforeseen events. Hence travel insurance is compulsory. 

All trekkers must provide a copy of their comprehensive travel insurance policy to Friendship World Treks. The policy must cover medical and emergency repatriation – including helicopter rescue and evacuation expenses at the highest trek altitude.

We can recommend insurance companies according to the experiences of our previous clients. However, we do not sell travel insurance.

Please send us your detailed insurance information within a week of booking the trek. In case of emergencies, we will use your insurance policy and informational documents to arrange a quick rescue.

Before purchasing travel insurance, call insurance companies and recheck if they have Helicopter-rescue and evacuation up to 4000m. Do not just believe in insurance company web content.

Passport and visa

All foreigners except Indians require a visa to enter Nepal. Citizens from most countries receive an arrival visa at the Tribhuvan international airport. The visa application requires a passport with at least 6 months of validity and a passport-size photo. The current visa cost is USD50 for 30 days, which you can pay in cash.

Citizens of China and the SAARC countries will receive free visas. 

Citizens from Nigeria, Ghana, Zimbabwe, Swaziland, Cameroon, Somalia, Liberia, Ethiopia, Iraq, Palestine, and Afghanistan may not receive an arrival visa. If you are a citizen of these countries, contact your local Nepalese embassy.
