UPPER MUSTANG
Mustang, opened to foreigners in 1992, is by far Nepal's most restricted trekking area. It is located in the Northwestern area of Nepal, and is part of the Tibetan plateau.
This area has long been inhabited by Tibetan Buddhists and such rich, untouched culture is found here. Trekkers are not common here which is why this trek provides such a rare and up close
look at a society that has remained unaffected by change for centuries. Unfortunately there is a high price to pay for such an experience. Permits are $500 per person for 10 days and $50 per day thereafter. The starting and ending point for all treks in the Mustang region is Jomsom, which can only be reached by plane. Trekking in Mustang is truly one of the rarest and most rewarding experiences to be had in Nepal.

Best Season: Sept to Nov, Mar to May
Type of Trek: Camping Max Altitude: 4050m
Minimum Pax: 2 +
Duration: 20 Days
