Upper Mustang Trekking, Fixed Departure Date for 2024/2025

Upper Mustang trekking will bring you in the hidden world of the old kingdom of Buddhist Mustang region referred as Lo, which was earlier a part of the entire Tibet Empire. Because of this, Lo or Upper Mustang region remains tied closely with Tibet based on geography, language and culture. Mustang is one among the few places worldwide, which has long-lived a life of close-niche and the respective region remained inaccessible among outsiders. Isolation of the Mustang area has allowed a large number of people living there to maintain their own tradition and lifestyle, while heritage of the region remained in almost unchanged state for many centuries.

Upper Mustang valley remains hidden behind the two famous yet majestic Himalayan mountain ranges i.e. Mount Annapurna and Mount Dhaulagiri. Mustang region remains filled with a large number of beautiful trek zones. Trekkers require special trekking permits to trek in the restricted areas of the Upper Mustang region, while a Liaison Officer takes the responsibility to accompany every trek moving ahead to Mustang. Despite Mustang region officially belongs to Nepal, the Mustang region in its upper area reaches to the Kali Gandaki River. The area remains closed to various foreigners for a long time because of its strategic location on the border formed by Nepal and Tibet. Mustang has remained opened for trekkers for about a decade and Nepal’s government regulates the entire area closely on a regular basis.

Upper Mustang Region thus has only a few organized treks and interested trekkers require a special yet an expensive permit to perform trek activities. Consequently, treks in this region are the most expensive ones in the entire Nepal region. However, the trek gives a pool of opportunity to explore the high desert area, more or less similar to the one in Tibet. Jagged peaks, brown landscapes and mud walled villages explored during the trek act as reminders of early Tibet before the invasion of China.

Where is Upper Mustang located?

Upper Mustang is a region located in the north central part of Nepal in the Himalayas. The region is often referred as the Kingdom of Lo. Upper Mustang lies in the rain shadow of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri Mountain ranges. The Upper Mustang was a restricted kingdom until 1992.

        Meal: Breakfast, lunch and dinner. 

           After doing the formalities of showing your restricted area trekking permit in Kagbeni we start our trekking because in Mustang there is heavy wind which gets up later in the day, blowing dust and sand around.The climb from Kagbeni to Chele passes through beautiful village of Tangbe, which offers white washed traditional houses and fields of barley, buckwheats and apple orchards.

          Meal: Breakfast, lunch and dinner. 

             After taking breakfast, we start our trek through a forest of small trees and green bushes which are able to survive in the narrow gorge because the high vertical walls keep them cool and sufficiently moist. Soon the valley broadens out and we can see walls built in front of caves which are temporary homes for the herders whose animals graze here. Sometimes it is possible to see the rare blue mountain sheep in this area. After about one hour we are on a pass offering a good view towards Samar, the Kali Gandaki valley and snow-capped peaks in the distance. After Samar we cross a side-valley, descending to its base and crossing over a creek, before we trek all the way up again on the other side.From Samar is a red painted cave monastery, which looks as if it has been stuck on to the vertical wall. This is Rangchyungchorten(the chorten that formed itself’), one of the most sacred places in Mustang.The walk to Syangboche can seem never-ending. It is fairly easy, but a constant climb with the destination nowhere in sight, until, finally, a cluster of houses appears. It is much colder in Syangboche. Overnight in Syangboche.

Yanda La, and passed a distinctive red chorten painted with Buddhism’s eight auspicious symbols and terraced valley with groups of yellowish trees appears and above the village of Ghelung are two red Gompas. Unlike other villages in Mustang, where the houses are built close together and look fortress-like, Ghelung is spread out wide on a patch of green grass and gives the impression of being a fairly affluent little community. Rising above the village are barren, brown hills and we can see the Nyi La pass straight ahead. The path descends gradually towards the Ghami La pass and on the way we see a rundown, deserted village downstream. Another broad valley comes in from the left-hand side and in its centre is Ghami, Mustang’s third largest town, which is high above the river and surrounded by fields. Overnight in Ghemi.

There is also a group of chortens standing in front of the red wall which forms the end of the valley. The architecture here is like a carvings, blending organic extension of nature. According to legend when the famous Guru Rinpoche (Padmasambhava) came to the area and fought and destroyed a demon, its intestines landed at the site where the Mani wall stands, its lungs near the red cliffs behind and its heart at the spot where Mustang’s oldest monastery, Lo Gekar, was built. A steady climb takes us up a 3820m pass, after which a lunar-looking desert stretches to the horizon. The first indication of human presence we see next is the Tsarangchorten – the large red-painted Stupa is in the middle of the landscape and further down the monastery and the palace of Tsarang can be distinguished in the fields. A broad road leads to Tsarang, Mustang’s second town. Overnight in Tsarang.

We have visited Kathmandu, Pokhara and Mustang day tour with best guide always without any kind of problem. Despite the three of us changing all pre-planning for our trekking tour well during the trip and despite of the changes due to unpredictable weather conditions, Hari and his team were perfectly able to cope with their organization -many thanks especially to Parshuram our tour guide. Prices are also nice and calculated on a fair and understandable basis. Therefore 5 stars and hopefully back soon for another adventure.
