Upper Mustang Trek

Hey!

Headed to Mustang for a photography project to document life, culture, religion and the changes brought to areas by the Western world. No set date of departure, but expect it will be around 2nd-6th March.

Here is my itinerary, starting out in Pokara:

Day 01: Fly to Jomsom and trek to Kagbeni (2850m/9350 ft). Overnight in local teahouses.
Day 02: Trek to Chele (3050m/10000ft). Overnight in local teahouses.
Day 03: Trek to Geling (3570 m/11710 ft) . Overnight in local teahouses.
Day 04: Trek to Tsarang (3560m/11676 ft). Overnight in local teahouses.
Day 05: Trek to Lo Manthang (3810 m/12400 ft). Overnight in local teahouses.
Day 06: Exploration day in Lo Manthang . Overnight in local teahouses/homestay.
Day 07: Exploration day in Lo Manthang. Overnight in local teahouses/homestay.
Day 08: Exploration day in Lo Manthang. Overnight in local teahouses/homestay.
Day 09: Lo Manthang to Trek Yara (3610m/11840 ft). Overnight in local teahouse/monastery.
Day 10: Yara. Visit Luri Gompa & Tashi Kabum. Overnight in local teahouse/monastery.
Day 11: Trek Tangge (3215m/10545 ft). Overnight in local teahouse
Day 12: Tange trek to Tetang (2970 m/9742 ft). Overnight in local teahouse
Day 13: Tetang trek to Muktinath (3760 m/12464 ft). Overnight in local teahouse

The trip is very reasonable at $850 USD, inclusive of $600 USD 12 day permit and a flight. Actually I am offering to pay for guide (compulsory in the Upper Mustang area) and food and accommodation will be on top, and we will do as we travel.

  1. Hi David,
    did you think about traveling by motorbike in mustang? Or how would you travel? We would need at least one guide maybe more. Or what would be your plan? I was thinking to go to mustang but it seems to me without a motorbike quite complicated.

    I am looking forward for your reply.
    Cheers Chris.

  2. Hello David.
    Is your plan to do the standard 10 day itinerary with 3-5 days in Lo M?. Would be very interested to trek in this region, have been to Nepal 5 times previously and would also like more of a cultural trek this time round. For 3-5 days in Lo M. are you thinking of staying in the same lodgings and exploring from there or moving around daily?.
    Feel free to PM / reply back if your plans have not changed.
    Thanks.

  3. Happy to provide you a guide that you guys could share for a very fair price.
    I could also help your sort out your special permit requirements if you want.

    Ready for sharing any kind of information on this trek. Since I’ve been there many times before.
    Cheers, guys!!!
