Trip Overview

Upper Mustang with Muktinath Trekking is one of the most remarkable and adventurous treks of the Mustang regions in Nepal. The 14 days Upper Mustang Trekking or 19 days Upper Mustang with Muktinath Treks begin from Kathmandu valley stay. After that, you will drive to Pokhara, the beautiful city of Lake and start your trek from there. During the trekking journey, with Himalayas’ views, you will pass through some ancient villages of Kagbeni, Lo Manthang, Jomsom, Chhuksang, and Chele Village. All these villages are such remarkable places with beautiful landscapes and cultural diversity.

This unique trek passes through the desert-like landscapes, deep canyons, beautiful waterfalls, eroded cliffs, and mountain valley. While walking along the side of the Kali Gandaki river you will get striking views of Mt. Dhaulagiri, Mt. Nilgiri, and Mt. Annapurna. Upper Mustang is also known as the Last Forbidden Kingdom. It was once part of Tibet and salt caravans used to cross the Himalayas of Nepal. It lies in the rain shadow area of the Dhaulagiri and Annapurna ranges and thus turned this land into a barren desert. So, this place is also called as the 'mountain desert'. Upper Mustang trek will reward you with diverse landscapes combined with the authentic Nepali-Tibetan culture. Enroute you’ll encounter with Tamang, Gurung, Mustangi, and Tibetan inhabitants. During this wonderful trek, you’ll also walk along the Kali Gandaki gorge which is one of the deepest gorges in the world.

Further, you will also visit Muktinath temple which is an important pilgrimage site for both Hindus and Buddhists. Upper Mustang with Muktinath Trekking ends with the short scenic flight back to Pokhara from Jomsom and followed by a drive to Kathmandu. Upper Mustang Trekking is the best option for those who want to explore the remote and untouched treasures of the Himalayas! The scenery along the entire trail is simply stunning.
