Trekking in Upper Mustang certainly offers you a ‘once in a lifetime’ experience. Mustang, also known as The Kingdom of Lo, was an independent Kingdom from ancient times until it became part of modern Nepal at the end of the 19th Century. It is a stronghold of Tibetan culture, religion, and life outside of Tibet, as it remains untouched by the Cultural Revolution in China. The area holds historic significance because of the artifacts, cave paintings, and texts that have remained relatively intact. The average altitude in Mustang is 11,000 ft. So trekking in Upper Mustang is a high altitude adventure as well. Since some trekking trails are being converted to moterable road and it’s being pushed to most of the villages, it is a crucial time to visit this beautiful land to witness Mustang as it has been for centuries. Trekking in Mustang starts and ends at Jomsom where a short flight or jeep ride is possible from Pokhara. Upper Mustang Trekking itinerary we have prepared here includes off the motor road as much as possible and we use jeep to return to Jomsom at the end as that’s better option to complete the trip.
Upper Mustang Trekking Update: Due to motor road construction as part of Nepal government’s initiative to open this area for international connection to China, Mustang villages are also connected by jeep track. So if you wish to make the easy trip or avoid trekking, then you can hire a jeep and make it an overland trip.
