A Trans - Himalayan state and last forbidden kingdom of Nepal are two famous words to describe Upper Mustang region of Nepal. Town of Upper Mustang used to be a Commercial transit point between Tibet and India.  Until 90’s the area was under restricted region but nowadays special permit and immigration clearance will allow visitors to trek Upper Mustang.
Scenic Nepal Treks & Expeditions is highly pleased to present Upper Mustang Trek which is the land of Tiji festival and once featured in international television the National Geographic Channel. Observe mysterious holes on hills to deepest gorge of the world.

Lack of proper accessibility components and accommodation facilities touristic activities were very limited. After road accessibility and walking trail formation the region has been attracting lots of visitors. Every year many trekkers and culture lovers visit this place. During Tiji Festival people from different parts of the world gather in Lo Manthang to witness the holy practices. Though overall nation is declared as Republic nation the charm of this place still holds the monarchical system. Understanding the topography of Upper Mustang area is really challenging task. Deepest gorge of Kaligandaki River is the most popular fact known to outer world. There are still numerous mythical and mysterious places in Upper Mustang which requires special attention. Nowadays number of trekkers visiting this place has increased. River as started from Damodar Kunda and fossils on the bank of Kaligandaki are new thing to observe during Upper Mustang Trek. Horse riding, special funeral techniques and Tibetan clustered society really take you to different level of thinking.

    Lo Manthang trek and Festival - Mustang Trek in Nepal


    I went on the Lo Manthang trek, Mustang through Scenic Nepal Treks to see the Tiji festival. Dipendra of Scenic Nepal Treks is very efficient, with great English and responds promptly to emails. To reach Mustang you need to be two people minimum and pay a hefty fee as the Nepali government want to protect the people of Mustang from mass tourism. Dipendra helped me find a trekking partner and organised the co-ordination of all the visas and meeting my trekking partner. Scenic Nepal treks organised the accommodation, food, sleeping bags, trekking poles, guide and porter. The trek was fabulous and Ranjan was a great guide as was Chris our Porter who also ensured that our food was well prepared. Scenic Nepal Treks sent a guide up to Mustang a few weeks before the trek ( not all places have phones) to ensure that we had decent accommodations because Lo Manthang has very limited accommodation. We were among the lucky ones as there was no room for the amount of tourists who wanted to see this spectacular festival.

    Upper Mustang Trek with Scenic Nepal Treks


    My 9 friends  and I had great and incredible trekking experience to Upper Mustang from 18-27 May. We have 8 persons in total. The trek took us through the greenery barley farm at Kagbeni to the amazing desert scenery of this high Himalayan kingdom till Lo Manthang which brought us to 3700meter height. Our journey ended at Muktinath, the end point of Annapurna circuit. Thumb up to the excellent services provided by Shankar from Scenic Nepal Treks to make this trip succeed. He was excellent, knowing exactly how to pace the walk and always cheerful and attentive.  In term of accommodation, we stayed in small guesthouses along the way. It was great way of meeting local peoples and seeing how they live. Shankar our tour guide is caring and thoughtful person, he always ensure all of us have enough foods and rest. They ensure that our trekking holiday is both exciting and highly memorable. Any concerns were dealt with efficiently and properly. Of course, this is well run by the trek company with reasonable price. Thanks to Shankar and Scenic Nepal Treks!
