Lower Mustang Trekking

Two weeks trekking through the deepest valley in the world and up onto the Tibetan Plateau to the holiest pilgrimage site in the Kingdom of Nepal. This is a classic trek offering the finest the Himalaya has to offer.

Trip description
This trek is as varied as it is fascinating and includes elements of all that trekking in Nepal has to offer. From the fertile and relatively low farmlands of the Himalayan foothills around Pokhara to the high altitude desert of the Tibetan Plateau around Muktinath. This trek passes through the famous Kali Gandaki gorge, the deepest gorge in the world, flanked on one side by Dhaulagiri and the other by Annapurna. The height difference from the top of these 26,246ft/8,000m peaks to the river level is often close on 20,000ft!

It is the classic tea-house trek with very good facilities as far as accommodation and food are concerned. This is because the trail we use is also the major trading route between Tibet and Nepal and has been for centuries. There is a constant traffic of exotically decorated mule and yak trains carrying various goods and you will be walking with villagers and traders as they go about their traditional and everyday lives.

The goal for this trek is the age old pilgrimage site of Muktinath. A varied complex of medieval Hindu, Buddhist and natural temples of water, fire and earth.

The beauty of this area is that while it gets you right in amongst some of the biggest Himalayan peaks, it does not take you to massive altitudes.
