Upper Mustang Trek

13th May, 2023

The Upper Mustang Trek was a fantastic adventure. The scenery was breathtaking, and we had clear views of the mountains and the Tibetan Plateau throughout the trek. The trail was relatively quiet, and we had some sections all to ourselves. Our guide was excellent and made sure we had a safe and enjoyable trek. It was a challenging but rewarding experience that I would highly recommend." - David, UK

The Upper Mustang Trek was an incredible experience. The scenery was spectacular, and we felt like we were in a different world. The trail was quiet, and we saw very few other trekkers. Our guide was fantastic and made sure we had a safe and enjoyable trek. It was a challenging but rewarding experience that I would highly recommend." - Rina, Nepal
