About Mustang trek itinerary
Mustang trek in Nepal is trip of once in a lifetime journey to explore the hidden Tibetan culture, ancient untouched Buddhist monasteries, amazing historical caves, incredible geographical scenery, crystal clear mountain views, Rain shadow area like Tibet. Our trek starts from Jomsom after 18 minute (scenic mountain flight) from pokhara. We trek a head to Kagbeni and chusang which is already connected by road and local jeeps are available nowadays, however we will cover this distance by walking in order to maintain our physical exercise and best enjoy some greenery and mountain scenery. Mustang trekking continue lead you to Ranchung Cave (a historical cave monastery) and follow higher trekking route of Dhakmar through Ghar Gompa, which is one of precious Nyingmapa sect Monastery at 3920m/ 12857ft, which is scriptures of Padmasamvaba. Our main destination of upper mustang trek is Lo- manthang, known as Kingdom of Mustang where still Private King Lives and locals respect king as leader and god of mustang region. every year in month of early May, there is cultural and religious festival known as Tiji Festival is happening at Lo- manthang. Our mustang trek itinerary has been designed very well by professional & experienced mind of Mr. Pasang Sherpa( Owner of NETTA), who have been trekked himself to mustang few times to study real facts and effects of recent road connection from jomsom to Lo-manthang. Please note Chusang to Bhena and higher area of Dhakmar, Ghar Gomba is still not yet connected by road and you will trek through these natural trails to Lomanthang.
At Lo-manthang, you will visit ancient monasteries of Lo-manthang and a day hike to Chosar Valley for historical visit of Jhong cave and monasteries and after few days exploration, we will walk or optionally drive( added extra cost) back to Bhena Via Charang, Ghami, Geling- Syangmochen where road is connected now. From Bhena to Chusang, road is not joined yet and so we have to trek between this. From Chusang, we will again follow jeep drive to Kagbeni to Jomsom. In summer, due to weather if flight to from jomsom/pokhara can delayed, sometime several days and in this case, we arrange optional overland road drive from Pokhara to Josmom. Keeping this is mind, we have kept a reserved day for flight delayed and also in case of weather problem, we can customize itinerary without missing any important sites of Upper mustang trekking.
Upper mustang trek is highly recommend from March to December, also recommend in summer months (June- September), however best months for mustang trek is March to June in spring and September to November in autumn. Because of rain shadow area, mustang trekking is possible in monsoon season such as July and August too.
