Upper Mustang Circuit in mid March 2015
10 DAY TREK IN UPPER MUSTANG:
I am already booked to arrive in KTM on Monday 2nd March. There I will arrange my Upper Mustang restricted area permits before setting off on the Annapurna Circuit trek as far as Muktinath / Kagbeni. If conditions are suitable there will also be the possibility to visit Tilicho Lake on the way! Then after a couple of days rest in Muktinath and/or Kagbeni I plan to start the 10 day Upper Mustang trek on the morning of the 17th March.
Starting the trek in to the restricted area of Upper Mustang from Kagbeni and doing a circuit rather than returning via the same route. Thus returning through the more remote villages of Tangge, Tetang and finally finishing the 10 day trek in Muktinath. I then plan to stay 1~2 nights in and around the Jomsom area before flying back to Pokhara and on to KTM.
I was initially planning to do this trek in October ~ November 2014 but cancelled due to the unforeseen weather conditions experienced in October. I endeavor to travel light, but would be interested in sharing a porter and a guide, the latter being compulsory in this area. So I do have a local guide, enjoy walking at a reasonable pace, taking lots of photos, getting off the beaten track and drinking clean water…………………………….Reply
