Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

You can get mineral or sparkling water during your tour or buy it in city areas like Kathmandu and Pokhara. We also recommend you carry water purification tablets.

It is essential to know that before heading out for 12 days on the Upper Mustang Overland Tour, you must issue some essential permits. Only if you have these permits will you be eligible for this tour, especially in restricted areas like Mustang.

Restricted Area Permit

One of the special permits is the restricted permit that your trekking agency must issue for you. First, you must need at least two members on a tour; another criterion is paying $500 for ten days. The charge for the extra day costs $50 per day.

Annapurna Conservation Area Permit

To trek through Mustang, you must obtain a permit from the Annapurna Conservation Area Project (ACAP). The trekking trail passes through the Annapurna conservation area, which stretches throughout Mustang, and failure to obtain this permit violates the law. 

The permit fee is essential to protecting the area's flora and fauna and developing trails in the Annapurna region. Therefore, obtain the permit before starting your trek to avoid legal consequences.

Permit Cost:

  • NRs. 1000 / approx $10 per person: SAARC nationals: 
  • NRs. 3000 / approx $ 30 per person: Fee for other foreign nationals

 

>

When discussing the best time to go on a trek or tour in Nepal, many people often suggest the Spring and Autumn seasons. The Spring Season is from March to May, whereas the Autumn Season is from September to November.

However, you can add one more season for the Mustang tour: the Summer / Monsoon season. The Summer / Monsoon season in Nepal starts from June to August. Generally, during the monsoon season, Nepal experiences relentless rainfall, but since Mustang lies in the rain shadow area, this region is unaffected by rainfall.

Only the lower altitude locations in the Mustang region experience rainfall, which affects the places and makes the trails more slippery and wet. So, for this Upper Mustang Tour, the best month of touring or trekking is March to November.

Remember, you must be careful during the monsoon season in lower altitude areas, as there is a chance of frequent rainfall and a higher risk of floods and landslides.

The worst season for the Upper Mustang Overland Tour is winter. Although it is possible to trek the region in winter, the harsh weather and intense cold can make your experience much more challenging. The temperature during the day is still cold, ranging from around 5 to 8 degrees. It decreases well below -15 degrees in the evening and sometimes reaches -20 degrees.

The wind pressure is quite relentless, and there is a considerable possibility of snowstorms, blizzards, and avalanches. The dynamic weather change will surprise you: one minute, you will be staring at a shining sun, and the next, you might get pelted by rapid winds or a heavy hailstorm.

>

The Upper Mustang Overland Tour lasts 12 days. During these 12 days, you will stay in accommodation facilities we curated for seven days. These facilities can be hotels, lodges, or tea houses. 

You won't need to bring tents during your tour as all regions have lodging facilities. Accommodations are usually shared, and you'll have a room with an attached bathroom whenever possible.

To make your sleep warm and cozy, all beds come with warm pillows, blankets, mattresses, bed sheets, etc. Cold-water showers are available in these tea houses, but you must pay extra for hot showers.

The accommodation facilities in Kathmandu and Pokhara will differ from those of tea houses in Lo-Mangthan, Kagbeni, Jomsom, Muktinath, and Upper Mustang. In city areas like Kathmandu and Pokhara, you can stay in three—to five-star hotels with all the services, which is not the case in basic lodges and teahouses in remote, restricted locations.

>

The Upper Mustang Overland tour ranges from easy to moderate in difficulty. The primary factor creating difficulty in this tour is the altitude. During your Upper Mustang tour, you will reach an altitude of over 3900m as you reach Nyangal Gompa, Sky Cave, and Tingkhar Valley.

The chance of altitude sickness is relatively high as you pass an altitude of 3000m. You will start feeling symptoms like headache, fever, nausea, dizziness, shortness of breath, etc. Even on a Jeep Tour, you will feel acute mountain sickness if your body is not acclimatized.

Unlike other treks, the Jeep Tour comprehensively reduces other difficulty factors, such as distance, duration, fatigue, etc. However, weather, climate, temperature, and altitude still make the journey fascinating and challenging.

>

Pay attention to your packing list if you want to make your Upper Mustang trek or tour fun and create never-before-made memories. Some essential items, such as clothing, medical healthcare, toiletries, or equipment and gear, are prerequisites for any trek or tour in Nepal.

  • Money
  • Camera

>

Hiring at least one guide is essential during your Upper Mustang Overland Jeep Tour. The guide will help you navigate from one place to another and will also help keep you safe and secure from known and unknown circumstances.

You are choosing a guide essential to making your excursion fun and safe. These guides must be highly experienced, qualified by the Nepal Tourism Board, speak multiple languages, and know how to deal with emergencies and uncommon situations in the mountains.

The foremost objective of the guide is your safety. Guides will help you with all kinds of safety concerns. From issuing permits to maintaining an acclimatization plan, everything depends on guides. Be sure to follow their instructions, as they are highly qualified and experienced in such rough terrain.

>

Hence, your 12-day Upper Mustang Overland Tour is the best way to explore Upper Mustang if you don't have much time for a trek. Moreover, this tour is also for those who don't have the physical stamina or capability to go on a challenging and strenuous Upper Mustang Trek.

So, if you want to visit one of the most beautiful restricted areas in Nepal and explore in a comfortable 4WD Jeep bus, make sure to book your first Overland Jeep tour of Upper Mustang.

Overwhelming overland tour of Mustang


From: United States | On: 22 Sep, 2019

Honestly, I was overwhelmed with everything that we were experiencing in Nepal. I did not mean this in a negative way whatsoever. There is so much to explore in Nepal. We chose Mustang for our touring purposes because we wanted to experience the Tiji festival which is widely famous among the Sherpa culture.

 

The tour was filled with scenery of isolated villages and people of the Himalayas. The country is diverse in terms of culture and landscape. It’s really inspiring to see all the people from different castes making a living together. We also had an opportunity to see the Sky caves, which is fantastic. The fact that, it was built by humans is just so much to process. The mountains of Nepal reflects that the country is secured by nature.

 

The trip would not have been possible without our travelling partner CoreTreks. They are a team of professionals who guided us throughout the trip and informed us about different unknown facts about Nepal. They are really patient with travelers and that is why I suggest you to check them out if you plan on trekking or touring in Nepal.

Mustang is a really amazing place to travel in Nepal. The place is filled with ancient structures and rich in culture. We went around Mustang exploring a lot things that are not talked outside the local area. The local settlements in Mustang and the people there are really inspiring and hardworking.

 

During our trip to Mustang we visited Pokhara city, old monasteries, old caves, and also observed the Tiji festival. It was a blessing for us to be able to explore such a beautiful place where positive believes rule over the people in Himalayas.

 

I cannot recommend CoreTreks more for your trip to Nepal. They are a highly professionals with a ton of experience of touring different regions of Nepal and are trustworthy. If you plan on booking a trip to Nepal, I definitely recommend CoreTreks as they are the best touring and trekking agency in Nepal.

Nepal is a really amazing gateway for people looking to spend their holiday travelling the world. I have to say, whether it’s for scenery or for the cultural background of the country. It is the ideal destination for travelers, especially for trekkers.

 

During our trip to Mustang region of Nepal, we got to observe different ancient monuments which are still protected and preserved. The hardworking Sherpas of the local settlements has a set of believes that they will not give up to anytime soon. I was really inspired by the fact that they are still so happy with so little.

 

If you want to experience the tour as well, I would recommend you to go through CoreTreks and their packages for travelers and trekkers. They are a team of highly dedicated professionals who are expert in touring and travelling in Nepal.

Our trip to Nepal was really exciting and filled with exhilarating activities. We chose the overload tour of Upper Mustang which was really fun. During the whole tour we discovered different cultural and geographical aspects of Nepal.

 

The untapped scenery of Nepal is really admirable. We were lucky enough to be there during Tiji festival. The festival is representation of how the devil loses against the deity. It is really interesting and inspiring. The people in Nepal are really hardworking and full of positivity.
