Mustang overland tours from Kathmandu - 11 days

Mustang overland tours from Kathmandu - 11 days

This tour is for those who do not want to walk but wants to enjoy one of the fascinating Tibet like landscape, great Himalayan Cultures with ancient monasteries, locals practicing Buddhism in their day to day life, tour includes all accommodations, tour with guides, permits and private transfers. Best to take during Tiji festival at Lo-manthang.


The Overland journey with the help of  4 wheel drive is another fun filled and adventurous trip on this fascinating land. The ultimate destination is Lo-Manthang, the capital of walled city Mustang. The route entails traveling across desert like landscape, barren ridges, deep canyons, eroded cliffs and moraine valleys. It is a land of barley field and pasture where sheep are seen grazing and ponies are used to carry loads. The views of windswept Kali Gandaki Valley, vast spaces around Kagbeni, sprawling ridges and high mountains provide a mind blowing experience for the brave adventurer. Note that throughout the route except from Pokhara to Beni  is off-road  and not blacktopped.

Mustang is still a remote destination though transport and phone communication has brought this place so near. The facilities available are just developing in recent years and more hotels are coming up at Lo-manthang to cater tourist's demand. The area is still restricted in terms of number of tourist visiting this region. Government  is concerned about the excessive impact of tourists on the fragile social environment and resource strap status of this region.
