Best Season for Upper Mustang Trek

Spring (March to May) and Autumn (September to November) are the best months for Upper Mustang Trek. Although this trip can be taken during winter, the cold temperature might not be suitable for everyone.

Upper Mustang Trek is a moderate trek suitable for walkers who can walk up to 6-7 hours a day with a light rucksack. In some days however, we might have to walk for longer hours. Walking in higher altitudes has more physical demands compared to the lower ones but it is not worrisome as long as we are averagely fit, have positive attitude and strong determination. It is highly beneficial if we exercise and jog regularly to enhance our strength, stamina and stability. Past hiking experience would be an asset but no technical skill is required for this trip. Participants with pre-existing medical conditions such as heart, lung, blood diseases, and allergies should inform Pinnacle Expedition before booking the trek. We also recommend that you consult your doctor(s) before the trip.

Try New Things

  • Accommodation will take place in a 4-star hotel in Kathmandu and Pokhara and the best available teahouses while on the trail. All of the rooms are on a twin-sharing basis while a single supplement will be served on request and charged additionally. Similarly, the rooms will include attached bathrooms, however, please take into consideration that since you will be trekking in remote areas teahouses’ facilities will be basic with shared washing and toilet facilities.

 

  • During our trek, we can enjoy the staple Nepali diet of daal-bhat-tarkari as well the common international cuisine like Tibetan, Continental, Italian, Indian, etc. Breakfast and dinner will be served from the teahouse or lodge menu we’d spend the night at whereas lunch will be served on the way to the next destination. All meals will be provided during trekking while only breakfast will be available in Kathmandu and Pokhara. There will also be welcome and farewell dinners for guests.

 

  • For this trek, one team leader with 1 assistant leader for every 4 trekkers and 1 porter for every 2 trekkers will be provided. This arrangement ensures that should anybody in the group get sick, the trip can still go ahead as planned. We can run the trek for groups of any size but after many years of experience we have found a maximum of twelve people to be the optimum size for a successful trip. However, if you’d like to book this trip for a larger group then that can be arranged too.
