Despite the seemingly long distances, the tour spans 14 days, ensuring ample time to explore each location rather than spending most of it on the road.

Key Highlights

The Gateway to Mustang: Jomsom

Jomsom serves as the tourism hub for culturally rich Mustang and the entry point to the region. The breathtaking views of the Himalayas and the natural diversity of Mustang provide a captivating experience. The town is adorned with pine trees, gompas, and stone temples, offering a spiritual venture for visitors.

Panoramic Himalayan Views

Sacred Shaligram Stones of Kaligandaki

The Kaligandaki River is famous for its Shaligram stones, golden black stones with fossilized imprints inside. These stones hold significant religious importance in Hindu culture as representations of Lord Vishnu, believed to bring inner peace and combat evil.

Exploring Lo Manthang's Ancient Kingdom

Founded in the 1300s and opened to tourists in 1992, Lo Manthang is an enigmatic destination with a rich history. The Royal Palace, built 600 years ago, and several gompas, including Jampa Lhakhang and Thubchen Gompa, stand as historical marvels. Recent archaeological discoveries have unveiled ancient paintings, monuments, and manuscripts, offering a glimpse into the region's past.

The Celebrated Tiji Festival

The Tiji festival is the most auspicious event in Upper Mustang, celebrating the victory of good over evil. The three-day festival, held in mid-May, features ritual dances performed by monks from the Choedhe monastery, depicting significant events from local legends.

The Sacred Muktinath Temple

Located at an altitude of 3,749 meters, Muktinath is a sacred site for both Hindus and Buddhists. Known as Mukti Kshetra, or "place of salvation," the temple is renowned for its ever-burning candle, symbolizing peace and harmony. It is believed that visiting the temple brings liberation from the sufferings of the world.

Road Adventure Through the Himalayas

The overland Upper Mustang tour allows you to cover significant distances comfortably. Despite rugged roads after Kagbeni, the journey offers stunning natural scenery, including the long-lost Tibetan Kingdom of Mustang and the gorges of Annapurna I and Dhaulagiri.

Permits for the Upper Mustang Overland Tour

To begin your Upper Mustang Overland Tour, foreign travelers need to secure two essential permits: the Restricted Area Permit (RAP) and the Annapurna Conservation Area Project (ACAP) permit.

Restricted Area Permit (RAP)

The cost of the RAP is USD 500 per person for the first ten days. For each additional day beyond the initial ten, the fee is USD 50 per person per day. The RAP is a single-entry permit and is non-transferable. To obtain this permit, travelers must be in a group of at least two people, as solo permits are not issued for restricted areas. Solo trekkers can join our fixed departure groups to meet this requirement.

Annapurna Conservation Area Project (ACAP) Permit

The ACAP permit costs NPR 3,000 per person. Like the RAP, this permit is also a single-entry and cannot be transferred to another person.

At Recreation Holidays, we facilitate the process of obtaining both the RAP and the ACAP permits, ensuring a hassle-free experience for our travelers.
