Upper Mustang trek difficulty & altitude sickness

The Upper Mustang trek is difficult. This trek is recommended to trekkers with previous high-altitude experience and good fitness. It is an offbeat trek in a trans-Himalayan region. The terrain, climate, and weather in Upper Mustang are very different from the rest of the trekking region in Nepal.

The terrain is steep, sandy, and rocky. Upper Mustang is a semi-desert. You will cross many mountain passes during the trek, all under 3,500 meters. Strong stamina, leg muscles, and core are required. The trail involves rugged cliffs, rocky gorges, and canyons. Overall, you will trek 145 kilometers (90 miles) during the Upper Mustang trek.

The distance may differ as per your itinerary. Compared to the usual gain in elevation during the famous treks in Nepal, the Upper Mustang trek sees a low rise in altitude. The highest point is Nyi La pass (3,932 m/12,900 ft). You have to be aware of altitude sickness during the trek, even though the risk is comparatively low.

The trail gradually ascends, allowing your body to adapt to altitude and environment before you reach Lo Manthang. Here, you will spend time acclimatizing. Likewise, be cautious of your body and inform any discomfort to your guide. Keep yourself hydrated and maintain your pace to avoid altitude sickness.

Is travel insurance needed for the Upper Mustang trek?

Yes, travel insurance is required for the Upper Mustang trek. Upper Mustang is located far away from major cities, with almost no decent health facilities. Even with our best efforts, you may get injured, sick, or suffer from elevated altitude sickness.

Likewise, there could be natural distress or any other unforeseen circumstance that may require you to immediately leave the trail. In cases like these we need travel insurance with helicopter coverage for a prompt evacuation.

Without travel insurance, the rescue providers ask for payment first, which can delay the evacuation. So, buy a nice travel insurance with helicopter evacuation coverage for the Upper Mustang trek. You may also cover medical bills, trip cancellation, theft of personal belongings, etc, in your travel insurance.

Accommodation and meals during the trek

Upper Mustang is a tea house trek. Our package includes basic teahouses with twin shared rooms. However, you have the option to upgrade the accommodation to luxury lodges available in a handful of villages along the trail. As per the changes made, the Upper Mustang trek cost will differ as well. Likewise, you can also get a single room by paying a few extra bucks.

The rooms in the tea houses are small but clean and cozy. You will get to rest after a long day trek and socialize with other trekkers and locals. Washrooms are mostly shared and have either Western or squat-style toilets. Running water is not available everywhere. You can buy a bucket of hot water to freshen up. Similarly, charging and WiFi also cost a few extra bucks.

We highly recommend getting a solar charger or a solar power bank and a sleeping bag for the Upper Mustang trek. In food, you will mostly get Nepali or Tibetan dishes. Flavors will be different than in the city, but you will enjoy the meals. Ranging from dal bhat, Tibetan bread, thukpa, stew, and momos to porridge, pancakes, eggs, toast, and soups, the options will be decent.

Indulge in local specialties like apple pie, rice pudding, slaty Tibetan tea, ginger tea, Nepali spiced tea, dhido, etc. Boiled drinking water is available everywhere. You can buy it at a very minimal cost. Use water purification for added safety. If you have any special dietary requirements, let us know. We will see what we can do.

What is the best time to do the Upper Mustang trekking?

You can do the Upper Mustang trek from March to November. Yes, you can do this trek in summer/monsoon season as well. As Upper Mustang is a rain shadow area, there is no rainfall in this region, so the trail is all dry, but you may face scorching heat. Similarly, winter trekking is only recommended to travelers who can handle extreme cold.

Overall, the best time to do the Upper Mustang trek is spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November). The climate and weather are excellent in these months. Trekking is pleasant because of the mild temperatures, and the mountain views are wonderful.
