Trip Description

You take a morning flight for Jomsom, the district headquarters of Mustang. Then after trek to Kagbeni, a sacred place for Hindu pilgrims, along the serpentine Kali Gandaki valley. The trail is wide along the sandy riverbed filled with saligrams. This trek provides spectacular views of Dhaulagiri, Tukuche, Nilgiri and Annapurna massifs.

Kagbeni is a beautiful village lies a top a cliff overlooking the confluence of the Kali Gandaki and the Jhong Khola rivers. It is the last village in Lower Mustang. This ancient settlement is like an oasis amidst rocky arid mountains. Get a chance to explore and enjoy its narrow alleys, irrigation canals, green patches of wheat, barley and recently-restored gompa. Kagbeni is the entry point for Upper Mustang, the forbidden kingdom historic region of the Himalayan nation. After the security check, move forward for Lo Monthang in Upper Mustang.

Lo Monthang is the walled city with a single entrance through which only the king is allowed to ride but all others have to walk. There are about 150 households along with some important Tibetan Buddhist gompas within the walls of Lo Manthang.

The king, Lo Gyelbu, Jigme Palbar Bista resides in his four-storied mud palace. Bista is an avid horseman keeping his own stable. Some of his horses are the best in Mustang. One should be careful from the attack of his Tibetan mastiffs. The king is just titular now but he is well respected and loved in the region. In the 1380s, Ame Pal established his reign in Lo with its capital in the walled city of Lo Monthang.

Holiday Information

Joining Arrangements & Transfers

All Clients travelling to Kathmandu will be met at the airport by a TTG representative who will arrange the transfer to the group hotel.  Please look our logo at the arrival gate. 

 

Accommodation

While in Kathmandu the group will stay in a mentioned hotel or hotels with similar categories as on itinerary.  We choose hotels not too far from the main downtown. Most of our hotels will be in central Thamel so that you can shop, eat and go anywhere easily.

Whilst on trek we spend in lodges/tea houses. The Nepalese trekking lodges also known as 'tea-houses' are simple, friendly and atmospheric. As they are far from the nearest road is it not surprising that they are simple establishments as everything must be carried up by porters or animals. Most of these lodges have heated dining areas which are often attractively decorated. Bedrooms tend to be quite basic and are unheated with wooden beds and foam mattress. You will need a sleeping bag. The lodges have shared washing and toilet facilities. Some lodges have solar powered showers (charged at $3 - $5 per shower) and battery charging facilities (also charged at a rate per hour). Staying at the lodges is a great way to meet fellow hikers and the locals. Most accommodation is arranged on a twin sharing basis and if you are travelling by yourself you will room with another single traveller of the same sex. Please note, however, that at several of the places in high season, there is a limited choice of accommodation and all the lodges have only multi-bedded rooms. Where this is the case, the group will be split amongst the available rooms and this could be unsegregated male/female. Hotel nights in Kathmandu and Pokhara single rooms are available for a supplementary cost. One the trek only sharing rooms.

 

Solo Travellers

Our group trips are designed for shared accommodation and we do not charge a single supplement. We believe single travellers should not have to pay more to travel. Single travellers joining group trips are paired in twin or multi-share accommodation with someone of the same sex for the entire trip. If you prefer to have your own single room then you have to pay single supplement, however the single room is only possible in Kathmandu not on the trek.

 

Food

Typical meals provided in the lodges will include some Nepali dishes and some international cuisine from pizza and chips. However as a responsible tour operator we encourage you to eat local food whenever possible because this will help the local economic and these local foods are always fresh.

We order meals in advance and your trip leader will suggest you what is safe and good to eat there. Breakfast will usually be porridge, eggs, bread, lunch will be a simple meal with a like noodle, rice, and dinner will be 2 courses consisting of soup, main meal. All drinks & beverages  and Deserts are extra. In Kathmandu breakfast is included if you have booked the hotel with us. If you are vegetarian is great if not we still recommend you to stay vegetarian especially during the trek as meat are not hygiene.

 

A Typical Day

Shortly after first light you should wake and start packing your kitbag and making preparations for the day. Coming down to the dining room we will be served breakfast from the lodge kitchen before setting off on the day’s trek. We will generally reach our lunch stop by mid-day after around 3 or 4 hours of trekking. Lunch is taken at tea houses along the route. This is normally a leisurely affair and is a great time for relaxing, reading and sitting in the sun. Our porters usually catch up with the group during lunch and then are well on their way to the evening’s stop by the time we set off again. It is usual for the afternoon’s walk to be shorter than the morning session. On arrival at the lodge the trek leader will organise everyone’s room. After checking in to your room you may wish to relax with a beer on the terrace of your lodge before taking dinner. Dinner is taken in the dining room which normally has some form of heating. This is a great time of day for reliving the events of the trek so far and for general socialising. By 9.00pm most trekkers will have retired to bed and by 10.pm the whole lodge will be asleep.

 

Group Leader & Support Staff

The group will be led by an experienced English-speaking local leader, and on trek will have the services of porters to carry luggage. 

 

Spending Money

Approximately US$400-600 (or equivalent Australian dollars, Euros etc.) changed into local currency, should be sufficient for miscellaneous personal expenses including tips for guide/porters, drinks for all trips & meals in the city. It is not necessary to obtain local currency (Nepali rupees) prior to departure. Sterling, US Dollars and Euros are equally acceptable for exchange in Nepal. We recommend that you carry your travel money in the form of cash, since you will exchange the majority of this on the day of your arrival in Kathmandu. If you prefer not to carry all of your spending money in cash, it is possible to withdraw money (rupees only) from ATMs in Kathmandu using your debit or credit card. During the trek it is possible to buy snacks, chocolate, tea, coffee, soft drinks and beer on most days. Please be aware that since everything has to be carried up, these items become more expensive as you gain altitude.

 

Guidance on Tipping

Tipping is the accepted way of saying ‘thank you’ for good service. Tips do not form part of the wages of your guides, porters and trek crew but they are very much appreciated. It is important to remember that tipping is voluntary and should be dependent on good service. Normally the tips are given at the end of the trek and this is best done as a group rather than from individuals. Most groups will give the tips with a bit of ceremony (or sometimes a party) on the last evening, to mark the end of the trip. The level of tipping should be determined by the group as a whole with everyone contributing an equal amount that all are comfortable with. As a rough guide, we recommend about 10% of your trip.  At the end of a trek many people also like to donate various items of their equipment to the porters and trek staff who work so hard to make the trip a success. Boots, gloves, hats, scarves and even socks (clean of course) are always warmly received by the porters. Technical clothing and equipment such as head-torches and trekking poles are highly prized by the Shepa crews. If you think you would like to donate equipment at the end of your trip, your local trip leader will make arrangements for a fair distribution among the trek crew.

 

Baggage Allowance 

Your baggage on trek will be carried by porters. The packed weight of your trek bag whilst trekking should be no more than 15kg. It is possible to leave clothes or other items not required on trek at the hotel in Kathmandu or Pokhara. Domestic flight to Jomsom has only 15KG of baggage allowance.

 

Altitude

This holiday involves going to high altitude. During the course of your trip you will reach altitudes in excess of 4230m metres. This is not something that you should worry about; the human body is quite capable of adapting to a very wide range of altitudes, but it is important that we follow some simple rules in order to acclimatize successfully. When we plan an itinerary we consider this very carefully and plan our holiday. 

Here you can find further information about Altitude Sickness.

Notes

The Nepalese are still traditional and conservative in the way they dress. Therefore to avoid embarrassment on both sides we recommend that you respect this and do not wear revealing clothing or sleeveless tops while visiting Nepal. Shorts are acceptable, but they should reach to just above the knee and be modest and for women it is preferable to wear trousers or a long skirt.

 

Passport & Visas

A passport with 6 months remaining validity at the end of your stay is generally required. Please check the relevant embassy or consulate for other nationalities. It is your responsibility to ensure that you have the correct travel documents and visas for your holiday. Visa requirements and charges are subject to change without notice. If you are travelling outside the EU you should have at least 2 blank pages in your passport for each country that you visit. 

All nationalities require a visa. The visa fee is $40 for 15 days, $50 for 30 days, $120 for 90 days and is obtainable on arrival. Payment must be made in cash and USD, GBP or Euros are accepted. Please bring 4 passport size photos for different permits.

 

Trekking Permits – what do we need from you?

We need your passport copy to make the necessary permit and arrangement. Please make sure we have this at least one month ahead of your trip. We also need your original passport after arrival to obtain the special Mustang permit.

 

Health & Vaccinations

You should contact your doctor or travel clinic to check whether you require any specific vaccinations or other preventive measures. You should be up to date with routine courses and boosters as recommended in the UK/US/Australia/Germany e.g. diphtheria-tetanus-polio and measles-mumps-rubella, along with hepatitis A and typhoid. Malarial prophylaxis is not usually required for trips in the mountains, however if you are visiting rural and remote low lying areas then they might be necessary. On holidays to more remote areas you should also have a dentist checkup. 

Know more about how you can stay healthy in Nepal: Staying Healthy in Nepal.

 

Currency

The unit of currency in Nepal is the Nepalese Rupee. We can change this money in Kathmandu which has better rate than hotels and Airports. Guides will show you the place after arrival.

 

Electricity Supply & Plug

We recommend you check if you require an adaptor for your electrical items at:

http://www.worldstandards.eu/electricity/plugs-and-sockets/

 

Preparing For Your Trip

It makes a lot of sense to spend some time before coming on a trekking holiday getting some additional exercise. The fitter you are, after all, the more enjoyable you will find the experience. We suggest that you adopt a weekly exercise regime leading up to your trip. Regular hiking in hill country is the best training but jogging, squash and swimming are also good for developing cardio vascular fitness and stamina. Note that you will encounter a lot of steps on the trail while ascending and you might wish to tailor your exercise to take this into account. Whatever your preparation you should make time to spend at least a few days prior to your trip making long walks in hilly country. It is also a good idea to do some reading about the country and the culture of the local people before you embark on an adventure holiday.

 

Climate

October to November and March to May are the best times for trekking in Nepal. These months either side of the summer monsoon season is neither too hot in the foothills nor too cold in the higher elevations and they offer the best conditions for trekking. December till Feb is winter and cold but often clear blue sky and nice day.  Pre-monsoon is the best time to see the colourful blooms of the rhododendron at lower elevations. The post-monsoon months usually offer the clearest skies and the most settled weather. At either of these periods you will encounter a wide range of daytime temperatures during your trip from approximately 25ºC in Kathmandu to approximately 14ºC at 3000 metres, and approximately -1ºC at Jomsom. The ‘real feel’ temperature in the middle of the day will be much warmer than this but at night in the rarefied air the temperatures plummet and you can expect to experience overnight temperatures below freezing anywhere above 3000 metres. In the higher elevation- the night time temperatures during winter may reach –5ºC or exceptionally, below this. Extended periods of rain or snow are very unlikely outside of the monsoon period but short lived storms can and do occur.

Great Guide and Support Team

We decided to chose a local company on our second visit to Nepal. We were impressed with the social responsibility that this company demonstrates by not using bottled water and also their charity work providing meals in schools, providing dental care and clean drinking water.Our initial plan was to trek to Upper Mustang but unfortunately the amount of snow in late February prevented us from completing our initial plan. Shreehari and our guide, Birman came up with an alternative trekking plan which was still challenging and would give us the opportunity to see at least some of the Mustang area. They were also very honest about the reduction in costs that resulted from the different itinerary and provided a full refund for the difference.Our guide, Birman was very good at finding tea houses which had an ensuite bathroom. Out of all the places we stayed only one teahouse had shared toilet facilities.Birman made sure that we had enough water to drink and it was clear that safety of his clients was his top priority.The porters (Bikash & Sange) did an excellent job and we felt part of a family as we trekked out of Jomson and back in to Pokhara.I would highly recommend this local company and would definitely travel with them again on our next visit to Nepal.

I  have recently completed my second trek with TTG. This latest trip was beyond the Annapurna mountains to the Kingdom of Mustang. The trip was a proper adventure! My guide and I went up the Kali Gandaki river from the village of Kagbeni to the fabled city of Lo Manthang. 

The trek took us through the amazing desert scenery of this high Himalayan kingdom. It is a very different region to the very nearby Annapurna Circuit which is more alpine in its feeling. Upper Mustang is a small desert kingdom hemmed in by the Himalayas. The trekking takes you through a region that few people visit and is wildly remote (for now). 

We trekked around the sides of enormous mountains, through gorges with fast flowing rivers and over high passes (the highest is only 4100m) through this fascinating land. We visited lesser known parts of the kingdom including the Dhakmar with its blood red cliffs that glow brightly in the sun and the Gar Gompa which is an ancient Tibetan temple surrounded by chortens in a fantastical landscape of mountains. 

We stayed in small guesthouses along the way which was a great way of meeting the locals and seeing how they live. 

Trekking Team Group  is a fantastic Nepalese trekking company based in Kathmandu. They ensure that your trekking holiday is both exciting and highly memorable. Your itinerary is as flexible as you need it to be so if you want to change your route or the duration of stay in a particular location then that's no problem.

Trekking Team Group organized our trek to Mustang last month. Originally we had thought about Annapurna but switched over to Mustang as it would be less affected by monsoon. Turned out we made a right decision.Shree and his company offer first class support. Lakpa, our guide, was very helpful and a right man to do the job. Flights, hotels and staff service - all top notch. Definitely recommended.

“Professional service”

I did trek to Upper Mustang with Trekking Team Group and I strongly recommend this agency to anyone, who is looking for reliable and professional partner in Nepal. TTG also made my arrangements for the trip to Tibet. Everything was just going perfectly. Manager Shreehari is very hands-on and also very kind. It's a joy to deal with TTG.

Additional Information

This is ADVENTURE travel, and many of the trip destinations in this site are remote areas, within under developed countries, where events are less predictable than is usually the case in. The unexpected is the norm in these areas and, despite painstaking planning and organization, our adventure trips can never be taken for granted like regular trips. Many of the places that we visit do not have the same quality of emergency health and safety services that you are used to in the developed world. Internal flights can be canceled, road transport is generally uncomfortable and unreliable, and hotels often do not approach the standards of the West.

 

IF YOU ARE NOT PREPARED FOR THIS, YOU SHOULD NOT TRAVEL WITH US. This unpredictability also means that the itineraries that we put forward for each of our trips should be seen as statements of intent, rather than as contractual obligations. A variety of factors, including weather, transport difficulties and political instability, might dictate that we change any itinerary. The trip leader will make any changes that are necessary, after consultation with the group. Only rarely will such changes be significant, and we will always do everything within our powers to minimize the effects of the enforced changes. We cannot be held responsible for the results of changes or delays, irrespective of how they are caused.
