“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.”

Here at The Himalayan Trekking, we always try to push ourselves to the top most level by offering new and exciting trip packages which can grab the hearts of our customers. And as the road development began in the regions such as Upper Mustang, we thought why not design a special trip which takes travelers to the stunning arid landscapes of Upper Mustang by Jeep.

Our 14 days Upper Mustang Jeep Tour is truly one of a kind trip at our disposal which is planned to take trekkers for an overwhelming scenic venture by driving into the Mustang region while travelers sit comfortably inside the Jeep and escape the road dust. We start our journey with a drive to the mesmerizing western city of Pokhara which is then followed by another drive to Kalopanivillage(2400m) which can take up to 7 hours to reach from Pokhara. Next, we head to Kagbeni which is an ancient fort but now it’s just a small village with few communities living there. We shall leave behind Kagbeni as we march towards Tsarangand ultimately to Lo – Manthang(3840m) which is also popularly known as the capital of Mustang. Our entire drive route takes us through dessert like landscapes filled with dusty silent canyons, ridges and moraine valley floors which can be a very exotic sight for many trekkers who think Nepal is a lush vegetation filled Himalayan nation. The dry wind carries itself with the eroded dust which can sometimes make it hard to navigate but nevertheless we shall keep up with our itinerary and go through with our trip no matter what. You can also see some of the most spectacular valleys of Mustang region while being accompanied by outstanding mountain vistas and ethnic local communities. As we reach the climax of our trip, we descend down to Chhusang (2980m) via Tsarang village and then go further to Muktinath which is another highlight of our trip. Considered to be a very revered religious site, both the followers of Buddhism and Hinduism safeguard it with utmost respect and care. After praying in Muktinath, we travel back to Pokhara city and then to Kathmandu to ultimately finish our trip.

This particular trip package is highly based on a Jeep drive and goes through all the major villages and towns of Mustang region in just a matter of 14 days while ensuring that travelers enjoy every bit of the trip without any major complications. Contact, Himalayan Holyland Treks & Expedition today and join our Upper Mustang Trek by Jeep to visit the hidden valleys of the flamboyant Mustang region.
