Besides the magnificent natural beauty, the trek also offers to explore the traditional way of living of local people, ancient old Buddhist Monasteries, Gumbas and culturally rich villages which are highly influenced by Tibetan culture.

Mustang Trekking Permit
Foreigners need to acquire a special permit to enter into this restricted and preserved area of the country. You need to issue a Mustang Restricted Permit from Kathmandu which is the capital city of Nepal. To enter into this restricted land, you need to spend USD 500 per person for the special permit which is valid only for first 10 days. For every extra day you spend there, you will be charged an additional cost of USD 50 per person per day. The cost for the special permit in the Upper Mustang is comparatively expensive than other trekking areas. While issuing the permit, you need to provide all sorts of your identity and relevant information like name, age, sex, profession, the origin of the country, family members, VISA status, passport number, marital status, etc.
Besides the special permit, trekkers wishing to reach Upper Mustang need to issue another permit named ACAP (Annapurna Conservation Area Project) permit. This permit is too issued in Kathmandu by Nepal Government which is applicable for one-time entry and exit. ACAP permit costs USD 20 and is compulsory for Upper Mustang trekkers as they must pass through the conserved Annapurna region.

Mustang Trek Cost
Before moving to any destination, budget and cost are the major factors to be considered. In an average, the cost incurred in Upper Mustang Trek is USD 1700 to USD 2200 per person for the period of two weeks. You need to disburse cash on several headings like issuing a special permit, ACAP permit, food and accommodation charges, porter/ guide cost, insurance cost, visiting fees for monasteries and also the cost for charging electronic gadgets.
During the journey, if you are willing to hire a guide and porter for more comfort, you need to disburse an extra volume of cash. Experienced and local guides and traveler are easily available on the route and you need to pay USD 22 to 32 per day for each guide/porter. This amount includes the cost of food and accommodation and insurance fees of each guide or porter you hire. The cost is minimized if you are an independent trekker and need not any guide or porter to assist you. But this may increase several challenges and you may go through many problems and obstacles.
