Mustang Trek provides the prospective trekkers and visitors with an opportunity to travel through the mystic region of Mustang which lies in the western region of Nepal. Mustang is one of the remote districts of Nepal. However, Mustang Trek is one of the most popular treks in Nepal. It takes you to the ancient Buddhist kingdom of Lo-manthang. Mustang is a mystic valley located atop Kaligandaki River in the rain shadow of the Himalayas. As Mustang receives very low rainfall throughout the year, Mustang Trek is feasible even during the monsoon season.
Mustang Trek introduces you to some of the enchanting places in Mustang districts like Kagbeni, Marpha, Jomsom and the sacred temple of Muktinath, which happens to be one of the holiest Hindu shrines in Nepal. Hence, Jomsom Trek ensures that your trek is filled with adventure as well as the added benefits of also being a pilgrimage tour. Mustang Trek takes you through a journey of barren moonscape of eroded sandstone pillars and intermittent moraine terraces. Thousand years old monastery, the city wall and the four storey palace in Lomanthang, caves, local tribes and breathtaking views of mountains like Nilgiri, Annapurna and Dhawalagiri make the travel to Upper Mustang even more tempting. The route also traverses through the world’s deepest gorge formed by Kali Gandaki River. The kingdom of Lo- Manthang is one of the most important places in Mustang as the place stands as a symbol of old Tibetan culture in the region of Lo. A special permission from the government agency (Department of Immigration) is necessary for trekking in Mustang as it previously fell under the category of restricted area trekking. Mustang Trek allows 10-13 groups (2-14 people maximum).
Mustang Trek commences from the beautiful city of Pokhara where we will reach after a picturesque drive from the capital city of Kathmandu. After sightseeing in Pokhara, we will commence the Mustang Trek either via flight to Jomsom from Pokhara or hiking all the way to Mustang.
