Overview

Upper Mustang Jeep Tour, Upper Mustang is located directly north of Annapurna ranges adjoining Nepal-Tibet (China) border. It is one of the controlled areas where special permits are required for tourists to enter. There are many options of visiting Upper Mustang, such as Nepal trekking, mountain biking tour or Jeep drive.

Mustang Jeep Tour takes you all the way to capital city of Lo Manthang, the walled kingdom which was once part of Tibet. The medieval palace of the kings of Mustang along with Buddhist monasteries and picturesque peaceful villages are a prime attraction of Lo Manthang. Explore ancient caves such as Kanchuling Cave, Choser and Jhong, archaeological sites and medieval monasteries of Garphu and Ghar. This is an off-road experience on a 4 × 4 wheel drive passing through some of the most unforgiving barren terrains that resembles that of Tibet: canyons, hills, rivers and high cliffs.

You will cross over passes as high as 4000m that offers superb views of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri peaks. On your return you will visit the Thakali town of Jomsom and Kagbeni which are located on the banks of Kali Gandaki River. The cultures and language of local Thakali and Mustangi people are similar to that of their Tibetan cousins.

Since the area falls within rain shadow region, Upper Mustang Jeep Tour is possible throughout the year save for peak winter period. The trip starts off from Pokhara and travels through Jomsom and Tsarang and returns via Gheling. The tour duration lasts anywhere between 10 to 15 days.
