About Upper Mustang Trek
The Upper Mustang trek takes you to the Mustang district's last forbidden world, very close to the Tibetan border. This 14-day Upper Mustang Trek takes you to Nepal's most preserved and isolated region.
As the topography and culture resemble that of Tibet, this region is also known as 'Mini Tibet in Nepal'.
It's the most interesting and unspoiled destinations in Nepal. It consists of high-altitude deserts, red-rock cliffs. Also, the deep gorges of the river and the view of some of the highest mountains in the world add to the beauty.
On this trek, you walk to the walled town of Lo-Manthang, which belongs to King Lo. And here you'll see the four-story palace and some of the beautiful architecture.
The 14-day Upper Mustang trek begins with a scenic flight from Pokhara Lake City to Jomsom. Take every moment to learn, embrace, and refresh your mind while observing this spectacular natural beauty.
Best Time to Trek Upper Mustang: Seasons & Festivals
Upper Mustang is located in the Himalayan rain shadow, making it a great monsoon trek and open year-round for travelers.
The best time for this trek is from mid-February to late November. It is impossible to trek in December and January due to very cold and heavy snowfalls. Optionally, the Tiji Monsoon Festival is highly recommended. The festival is bound to be one of the most memorable treks in the Upper Mustang.
Pre-monsoon / spring (March to May) and post-monsoon / fall (October to November) are the best time for visiting and trekking in many places in Nepal, but Upper Mustang is the best during the Tiji festival, unlike many other destinations in Nepal.
