Upper Mustang Trek Itinerary

Book This Trip  

Upper Mustang is located in the Trans-Himalayan region of Nepal. It is surrounded by the beautiful Annapurna Mountain, Dhaulagiri, and others. This place is popular for the oldest monasteries, caves and for the ethnic culture and costumes. The Upper Mustang Trek Itinerary is not a longer trekking destination of the Annapurna region as the trekkers can take a plane from Pokhara to Jomsom and return by plane. It means they need to walk only for 10 days. If they require, we can customize it without a plane too.

For more information, you can go through our Upper Mustang Trek detail itinerary.
