Mustang Region Trekking

Showing 4 Packages

"Explore the rugged beauty of Mustang where the desert landscape and remote villages paint Nepal's ancient stories and historical wonders."

Mustang Region Trekking is one of the most popular trekking destinations located in the northern part of Nepal. The rugged desert, lush green valley, and river streams along some remote villages provide one of the best trekking experiences, lasting a lifetime. Similarly, the Mustang region offers diverse landscapes with views of gorgeous snow-capped peaks.

The Mustang trekking offers splendid views of mountain peaks like Mt. Dhaulagiri, Tukuche Peak, Nilgiri South, Nilgiri North, Yakwankang Peak, Jakrijang Lek, and Damodar Himal. Nepalese locals often favor the Mustang trek with their friends, family, or even alone. The most common routes are the upper Mustang region and the lower Mustang region.

The upper Mustang trek consists of the trekking route through barren landscapes and traditional villages like Kagbeni and Lo Manthang. Similarly, the lower Mustang trek involves more religious exploration through sites like Muktinath. The region is home to the world's most immense gorge, known as the Kali Gandaki Gorge, which is a sight that is not to be missed.

Similarly, explore the gateway of Mustang, the charming village of Kagbeni. The Kagbeni area is influenced by Buddhist religion, so travelers can see architects, prayer wheels, and prayer flags all along the route. This ancient place also holds cultural significance along the Annapurna Circuit trek.

Likewise, Lo Manthang is a legendary walled city located in the center of Mustang. The walled city retains its historical heritage and traditions with artifacts that have lasted for centuries. Be sure to witness the Tiji festival, which shows the traditional dances, rituals, and masked performances if it falls under the days of the Mustang region trekking itinerary.

Another religious highlight of Muktinath is a not-to-miss destination. Muktinath is a temple in Nepal that is located at the highest altitude. Pilgrims can take a bath in nearby 108 taps and dip in the two kundas, which are believed to wash away sins.

The best seasons to embark on trekking in the Mustang region are spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November), considered the most recommended seasons to hike in any part of Nepal. While spring and autumn are the most recommended seasons, Mustang trekking can also be done in monsoon and winter.

Another important thing before heading towards Mustang is the permit. As Mustang falls under the restricted area, trekking in the region requires a Restricted Area Permit (RAP), Annapurna Conservation Area Permit (ACAP), and Trekkers Information Management System (TIMS) card along with all the visa documents.
