Best time for Upper Mustang Trekking

The best time to hike to Upper Mustang in Nepal is during the spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November) seasons. These months offer the most favorable weather conditions for trekking in the region.

In the spring, the weather begins to warm up, and the days are usually clear with moderate temperatures. Little bushes along the trail come alive with vibrant colors, adding to the scenic beauty of the region. However, we advise you to prepare with proper gears for occasional showers during this time.

Autumn is considered the peak trekking season in Nepal, including Upper Mustang. The weather is generally stable, with clear skies and mild temperatures during the day. The autumn months offer excellent visibility, making it ideal for enjoying the panoramic views of the Himalayas. Additionally, the landscapes are often adorned with golden hues as the leaves change colors.

It’s important to note that Upper Mustang is in the rain shadow of the Himalayas, receives significantly less rainfall compared to other regions of Nepal. This makes it suitable for trekking even during the monsoon season (June to August). However, the trails can be slippery and muddy, and there is a possibility of landslides, so it’s essential to take necessary precautions and consult with us for your mustang trip planning a monsoon trek.

Winter (December to February) is not generally recommended for hiking to Upper Mustang due to the extremely cold temperatures, heavy snowfall, and the closure of the high passes. The accessibility to the region is limited during this time, and many teahouses and facilities along the trek may be closed.

Ultimately, the choice of the best time to hike to Upper Mustang depends on your preferences and priorities. It’s recommended to check the weather conditions and consult with Gokyo Agency as a local experts travel agency to plan your trek accordingly.

Upper Mustang Trek difficulty

The Upper Mustang trek is considered to be a moderately difficult trek, suitable for trekkers with a reasonable level of fitness and some trekking experience. The difficulty of the trek can vary depending on several factors, including the time of year you choose to trek, your personal fitness level, and the weather conditions.

From April to October, which is the typical trekking season for Upper Mustang, the weather is generally more favorable compared to the colder winter months. In a daytime temperature are milder, and the skies are often clear. In the spring season like trekking in April and May, we have a moderate temperatures and beautiful blooming landscapes but the difficulty level is still moderate, with clear trails and pleasant weather.

Likewise, June to August marked as the monsoon season in Nepal and we have often heavy rainfall, making the trails slippery and potentially more challenging. Landslides and leeches can also be encountered on the trails. Trekkers should be prepared for wet conditions and some trail obstacles. This time of year can increase the overall difficulty of the trek due to weather-related challenges.

Additionally, September and October are best time comparing other months. Weather is clear, with stable temperatures and great visibility. Hike to Lo manthang in autumn considers the best time to trek in terms of both weather and trail conditions.

While the difficulty level is generally moderate, it’s important to note that the altitude in Upper Mustang is significant, with some sections of the trek reaching over 3,800 meters (12,500 feet) or higher. Altitude sickness can be a concern, so it’s essential to acclimatize properly, stay hydrated, and be aware of any symptoms.

Lomanthang to Jomsom drive option

The only way to travel from Lo Manthang to Jomsom by road is through the rugged and scenic mountainous terrain of the Upper Mustang region in Nepal. The distance between Lo Manthang and Jomsom is approximately 50 km that about seven hours roughly depending on road conditions to complete.

After exploring Lomanthang and its surrounding, some traveler’s wish to return with a same road choosing a jeep option back to Jomsom. However there are no direct public buses that operate on this route, but you can hire a private jeep or find a sharing jeep to make a safe journey back to Jomsom quickly.

It’s important to note that the road may be closed during the monsoon season (June to September) due to heavy rainfall and landslides. It’s best to plan your trip during the dry season (October to May) to avoid any inconvenience.

Notes for Upper Mustang Trekkers!

If you are a solo traveler, no worry, we assist you in searching for other travelers to share Mustang trek permits.

Magical mustang hike information as stated above is just a standard template guideline that we serve you. However, a mustang travel plan is possible to modify at your request to accommodate your specific requirements. Local politics, landslides, cancellation of local flights, weather, transport, or a multitude of other factors that are beyond our control can result in a change of schedule during on trip.

It is, however, very incredible that the itinerary would be extensively altered. If alterations are necessary the leader will decide the best alternative option, taking into consideration the best interests of the whole group. When a change does occur, we do everything we can to minimize its effect, but we cannot be responsible for the results of changes or delays.

Upper Mustang Trek Review

Excellent trek. Reliable and honest agency

Rated 5 out of 5
January 21, 2020

We booked our Upper Mustang Trek with Ammar and we are very happy we did it. Gokyo Treks is an agency you can rely on. They are honest, take care of their groups and guests. Ammar called every day more than one time a day to check how we were doing. We felt protected and safe. All the trek has been organized perfectly, faultless. Som (the master guide) is a perfect companion. He is there when you need him but he does not bother you with unnecessary attentions.

What else to say: we will do more treks with them hopefully very soon. We have found THE agency and we recommend it to all of you.

In 2007, I trekked to the EBC and walked the Annapurna circuit with Gokyo Treks and Expedition. It was a wonderful experience. I even spent a few days in Amar’s village with his family after my trip.

This year I planned to trek the upper Mustang and watch the Tiji Festival in Lo Manthang with my daughter. I started coordinating with Amar Guni late last year. He provided a great itinerary. Communication was very efficient. Everything has been finalized.

Unfortunately, I got sick during my overland trip from Lhasa to Kathmandu and I had to cancel the Upper Mustang trek at the last minute. Amar was very considerate and sympathetic to my situation. I hope I would be able to return to Nepal in the near future and do another trek.

I highly recommend Gokyo Treks and Expedition to anybody who wants to have an adventure in Nepal.
