Tour Details

The adventure starts in the beautiful city of Pokhara. From there, you’ll travel on winding roads to Beni, where the off-road journey begins. Driving through dusty roads, barren gorges, magnificent cliffs, and various passes, you’ll journey through the Kaligandaki Gorge with the majestic Dhaulagiri and Annapurna Massifs in the background. The tour ultimately takes you to Lo Manthang, giving you ample time to explore the diverse culture and landscape of Upper Mustang. The return journey follows the same route.

A Typical Day on Tour

Your day starts with breakfast, such as eggs, toast, or porridge. After breakfast, you'll hop in the jeep and head to your next destination. The guide will stop at viewpoints for photos and enjoying the view. You can also request stops whenever you like.

There are plenty of coffee breaks, and if you're in a group, you can make your own freshly brewed coffee while enjoying the mountains or riverside. Lunch is usually at different locations, but breakfast and dinner are at the place where you’re staying.

If you pass a monastery, you’ll have the chance to go inside and explore. Short hikes are also possible, with your belongings safely carried in the jeep. You can enjoy nature and its views while hiking.

In the evening, once you arrive at your guesthouse, you have time for leisure activities like board games, cards, snacks, taking photos, and social media. You can interact with locals and enjoy dinner, perhaps trying some homemade alcoholic beverages made from local fruits. After dinner, it's time to rest for the next day’s adventure.

Fees, Permits, and Facilities

Foreign travelers have been allowed in the region since 1992, but tourism is regulated. You'll need a special permit to enter. Mustang is a restricted trekking area, but now it's popular for trekkers. To get a permit, you need at least two members in a group. If you're traveling alone, we can join you with another group. We need a copy of your passport to obtain the permit.

Trekking permits for Mustang cost $500 per person for 10 days. Extra days cost $50 each. Note that the 10 days start and end at Kagbeni.

Best Seasons

Most people leave Lo Manthang during winter to avoid the cold and snow. The best time to visit is from late March until early November. While the tour doesn't go to extremely high elevations, the cold, dust, and afternoon winds can be challenging.

Food

In the city: You’ll find a variety of food options, from local to continental and Asian cuisines. The taste might differ from what you're used to, but there are many choices.

In the mountains: Food options are limited to local dishes like momo, dal bhat, parathas, and fried rice. These are made with locally sourced ingredients and prepared by local people, often quite enjoyable.

Accommodation

In cities, we provide bed and breakfast plans, and during the tour, we offer full board plans that include accommodation and food. Rooms usually have attached baths, depending on group size, budget, and availability. For families, we provide family-friendly rooms. In cities, we use three to four-star hotels, while in rural areas, we provide the best available accommodations. You can choose your accommodation, but prices may vary.
