Upper Mustang is a mysterious, ancient and hardly accessible kingdom located in the north of Annapurna region in Nepal. Mustang is popularly known as the ‘Kingdom of Lo’ which actually belongs to Tibetan land and culture. Mustang is an isolated place which became available for trekking around a decade ago. Mustang trekking trail is now popular in Nepal which pass along the bed of valley most of the times. During rainy times, we might have to walk along the edge of the valley when the level of river is high. However, rainy season is very occasional here and therefore, Mustang trekking can easily be done almost throughout the year. There is no need of a great physical strength for Mustang trekking as there are no high pass crossings. Along Lo Manthang route, trekking is considered to be much easier.
Mustang trekking means walking through dry and barren landscapes. Mustang hides behind the majestic Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges and has relatively less rainfall than other regions of Nepal. In the afternoon time, you might face strong winds blowing in this region. One reason why you should choose upper Mustang trek is because it offers long-lived, unspoiled and unchanged culture and lifestyle as the region was not permitted to the individual visitors.
Guest houses were very good and the food excellent.
Had a great trek to EBC with Mountain Hawk in March 2012. Badri was our excellent guide and Niraj our porter. Everything was organised so well and our safety came first. Guest houses were very good and the food excellent. I recommend Mountain Hawk to anybody.

Upper Mustang Trek
My wife and I went to Upper Mustang in October of 2016 with Prem Pandit from Mountain Hawk Treks. I can only say that it was the most remarkable trip we've ever been on. Mustang is vast, stark, raw, remote, and to date, unspoiled.

August 07, it was our first time in Nepal, and we decided to go to the Upper Mustang (there is no bad monsoon time there at this time). We were solucky, that Prem was our guide and companion during 2 weeks.
A great big thank you to Prem and Badri for making our recent Mountain Hawke Himalayan adventure a wonderful experience! As two women travelling alone, it was really reassuring to have everything go so smoothly.
