This trek visits the ancient Kingdom of Mustang where the language, culture, and traditions are still almost purely Tibetan in nature. Until 1992 Mustang was the most inaccessible and restricted area in Nepal and few foreigners had visited the region. Entry to the region is still strictly controlled and because of this, a high trekking permit charge is made. Mustang has a long and complex history that makes it one of the most interesting places in Nepal. A feature of this trek is the opportunity to experience the unique and ancient culture of the Mustang people which, because of its isolation, has remained unaltered for centuries. We start our trek from Jomsom and trek northwards into the heart of Mustang reaching the region’s capital Lo Manthang after 5 days. We spend two days in this amazing city before returning to Jomsom for our return flight.

On the trek
Our trips are all operated on the GAP system - Guides, Accommodation, Porterage. Over our many years of experience we have realised that clients prefer to choose and pay for their own food and drink on the trail. Not only does this result in a more cost effective regime but it takes into account the many factors that can influence our clients choice. Some clients prefer a hearty breakfast with relatively light lunches and dinners, whilst others prefer the opposite and so we allow our clients to make their choices and the sirdar helps to settle bills as we progress along the trail. We recommend that you allow US$25 per day for food and drink.
Permits and Entrance Fees
All trekking permits and entrance fees are included.
