Upper Mustang trek starts from Jomsom after taking a scenic flight from Pokhara, leading you to the hidden Shangri-La of the ancient Buddhist kingdom of Mustang, also called Lo. Lo used to be part of the Tibetan empire, and is therefore closely connected to Tibet. Tibetan Buddhism is still being practiced in a very pure form and villages are built in Tibetan style, with white washed houses with firewood tucked on the roofs. Until recently you could only come to Upper Mustang Trek with a fully organized camping trek. However, nowadays some villagers have opened up small guesthouses/teahouses and you can stay in a guesthouse in each overnight place. While staying there, you are welcome to sit with them in the kitchen. In Tibetan culture, the kitchen is the center of the house, and built like a kind of living room. So there is no better way to learn a bit about the daily life than spending time in the kitchen!

    I’m thinking about joining this trek but I don’t have a very big budget. How much additional money would I estimately need on this trek? (I’m already in Pokhara and have my visa) Thank you 🙂

  5. Namaste,
    Thank you for your comment and interest. There should be minimum 2 parties to get the permit. Solo trekkers are not allowed into Upper Mustang. Our package cost is U$ 1775 and you might need additional U$ 5-10 a day for the expenses that I did not included in the package.
    Thank you & regards,

  6. Johanna Hornsby

    Okay, thank you very much! So just to be 100% sure – your package also includes all the permits I need and I basically just have to show up with my gear, is that right?

  7. Yes, the package I offer covers all the necessary permits, meals, lodges, guide & porter during the trek.

  8. Pradip, I have sent you an email thru the company you work for asking if you are available for my trip to Lo on May 14. Thanks!
