From tropical forested lands at a lower altitude to Tibetan influenced trans-Himalayan landscapes at higher grounds, everyone with fit physical fitness can join this adventure within 14 days of time frame. Along the course of our Lower Mustang Trekking, we pass through Poonhill viewpoint that offers excellent views of Annapurna Himalayas.

We begin our Lower Mustang Trekking after your arrival at Tribhuwan International Airport in Kathmandu followed by next day sightseeing tour around UNESCO world heritage sites of Boudhanath Stupa, Pashupatinath, Swayambhunath Stupa and Patan Durbar Square. In this way, we complete our necessary trekking preparations and either take a drive or fly from Kathmandu to Pokhara.

We enjoy our day at naturally blessed lake city of Pokhara by boating on Phewa Lake and start trekking towards beautiful Sarangkot hill. Further, leaving behind, nandanda, we drive to Nayapul and trek to Birethanti and Tikhedhunga before heading towards Ghorepani the next day. Continuing our Lower Mustang Trekking, we get an exclusive opportunity to capture the best sunrise views of Annapurna Himalayas, Dhaulagiri, and other neighboring peaks.

Tatopani is also commonly known as the entrance to the Mustang region. Then we head towards beautiful Ghasa, Tukuche, Marpha, Jomsom, and Kagbeni in next couple of days that gives us an exclusive chance to witness the diversity from both natural and cultural point of view.

We finally arrive at the popular pilgrimage site of Muktinath temple holding great importance for both Hindus and Buddhist pilgrims. Nearby, visit monasteries, watching an eternal flame would be other attractions there at Muktinath. The next day, we trek back to Jomsom and fly to Pokhara with a visit to nearby popular attractions like David falls, Gupteshwor Cave, Seti river gorge, etc. And we conclude our Lower Mustang Trek as we get back to Kathmandu.

As Mustang region lies in the rain shadow area and receives less rainfall, Lower Mustang Trekking can be joined during any time of the year.
