Upper Mustang Trekking
1850

Overview

Mustang literally means “fertile land” in Tibetan language. Once the capital city of the ancient kingdom
of Lo-Manthang, till today Mustang is one of the most unscathed places on the earth, a far cry from the postmodern world of today.Upper Mustang trekking is definitely one of the most enigmatic and unforgettable trek you will embark on.

What makes Upper Mustang Trek fascinating is, up until 1992 AD Upper Mustang was a restricted demilitarized area which makes it the most conserved region in the world.

Mustang is tucked away from the rest of the world, right to the north of the major Himalayan range of Nepal. Despite of the hardships and adversities; happiness and joy sprouts from ever smiling, warm faces. Every single piece of rock and centuries old monasteries which carries a unique story greets you in your Mustang Trek footsteps.

The Upper Mustang comprises approximately northern two-third of Mustang District of Dhaulagiri Zone. Only in 1992, trekking in the region was officially started. It allowed only a few number of trekkers keeping in consideration the delicate environment and the ancient enclosed culture of the people.

A trek in this legendary Kingdom of copper red parched valleys, eroded canyon and deepest gorges decorated with yak caravans, colorful prayer flags and mudbrick houses in the backdrop of magnificent Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, Tukche and Nilgiri is your ultimate journey to Shangri-La. Experience the exotic culture of the mountain people like Thakalis, Tibetan and Gurung and be part of their strong culture that has survived for centuries in the driest place of the country.

The Upper Mustang Trek is fairly easy in relation to the gratifying experience it provides. We will trek along the permitted route of the Lo-Manthang to reach the maximum altitude of 3,840m. Join Nepal Eco Adventure’s Upper Mustang Trek, a 17 day journey to the land beyond the mountains, to the kingdom within a republic where till today the king is worshipped as divine.

Yes our company trekking staff including guides, porters, cooks, Sherpas all of them are insured. we have bought insurance for all our staff from Neco Insurance. Their insurance cover up to $5000 USD.

 How much should I tip to my guide and porter?

Tips do not form any part of thewages of guides,porters and other trekking crews. but they are expected by the porters, guide, Sherpa and cook. it is a nice way of saying thank-you to someone who will play a large part in your trekking experience and who will prove invaluable to you on this trip. Our porters  and guides will be paid more than working for other big tour and trek companies. we suggest to tip 10-20% of total trip cost. This amount must be given in Nepalese rupee. The porters live in small hill villages several days walking from the nearest bank or money changer. I will suggest you to be generous about tipping job they have done for you.
