Truly experience upper Mustang 2023!

I have completed a journey to Upper Mustang with Himalaya Guide Nepal Pvt. Ltd. and it was a positive encounter. The reason I chose this company from a few others was due to the fast and proficient reactions from Chandra, the head of the company, and their sensible estimating.

The organization of the trip was amazing, beginning with a consistent airplane terminal pickup. On the journey, my guide Dinesh, who is neighborhood of Upper Mustang, gave a smart involvement. His information about the neighborhood tongue, culture, and lesser-known trails improved the travel altogether. He was charming and proficient, making the journey agreeable. He too gave me priceless exhort on nourishment, so I have never had any issues with my stomach (which perplexed me at the start of my trip).

My helper, Binod, moreover included significantly in the encounter. His dealing with the gear was proficient, and his positive mien, counting intermittent murmuring of society tunes, brought a one-of-a-kind charm to the trip.

This journey was important, and I am considering returning to Nepal for the Annapurna Circuit.

Upper Mustang Tea House Trek 2016, Chandra organized this 10 day Upper Mustang trek for myself and my wife in Nov 2016 providing a guide and porter, etc. We found him and his staff very friendly and efficient. And have no hesitation in recommending his services to anyone coming to Nepal.

The scenery in the Upper Mustang is fantastic and unlike any other trek in Nepal. The downside is that 80% of the trek is on the new road. Though it is not busy. It can be a bit of a pain having the dust in your face by passing jeeps and bikes. So, unless you really want to do Mustang I would suggest asking Chandra to organize a different trek in Nepal (there are many) for you. I’m sure you’ll have a great time with him.

Upper Mustang Trek

Upper Mustang Trek Review, It’s easy to find them on the internet and they respond to emails fast. The guide is good at navigating on the treks and in the villages. They are friendly, hard-working, and good at accommodating changes (when one of us gets sick). I wish they could talk more about the culture and history of this wonderful Tibetan kingdom. And does not confuse between pre-historic dwellings and rabbit caves. I highly recommended this company if you are looking for a trip to Nepal.

We had a great experience during the trekking. So, If you are looking for trekking in Nepal then do not forget to visit Upper Mustang Trek because it is different than other treks in Nepal.

Magical Mustang Trip!

Magical Mustang Trip. Our holiday in Nepal was amazing because of many reasons. Some of them were very obvious – the region of Mustang was magical, the nature so beautiful, and the authentic atmosphere we could see with lots of interesting domestic people, customs, and traditions. However, there were other reasons which made us the best trekking we could have ever had. The organization of our trekking by the agency Himalaya Guide Nepal Pvt. Ltd. was great. The services they provided us with were perfect. They really took care of our trip, we had everything arranged perfectly – the food, the accommodation, transfers, everything. I would recommend this agency to everyone who wants to visit this wonderful region.

Upper Mustang Trek Excellent

Upper Mustang Trek Excellent is our fourth visit to Nepal and our fourth trek (Annapurna Circuit Trek, Manaslu Circuit Trek, and Everest Base Camp Trek ) with Himalaya Guide Nepal. As always we received excellent service from Chandra and his team. Dinesh was our guide (on request) and the youngest brother Umesh was our helper. Umesh was a delight, always with a ready and infectious smile despite carrying our two backpacks. English speaking Dinesh is one of life’s very special characters. We thrilled to have him as our guide again. He is very experienced, trustworthy, kind, caring, and strong.  Always making sure our needs/requests met. We had the best of everything.

The Upper Mustang is quite different from our previous treks with a dry and barren landscape. But having said this the scenery was spectacular and beyond all expectations. Most of the old trails are rapidly disappearing as the new roads go through but Dinesh did his utmost to plan our route on the trails that do exist. We recommend you start trekking as early as possible, in the day, and finish before lunchtime to avoid the horrendous wind and dust issues. It is also worth considering taking a jeep over the worst of the new roads. And this can discuss with your guide. We continue to highly recommend Himalaya Guide Nepal!!

Upper Mustang Trekking

Upper Mustang Trekking was our fourth visit and trek in Nepal. Having previously completed the Annapurna Circuit, Everest Base Camp, and Manaslu circuit in 2015, 2016, and 2018. All treks are arranged through Himalaya Guide Nepal and as stated in previous reviews I would not use any other company. They are a small family unit that provides the utmost personalized service.

The Upper Mustang Trekking is a very different trek from the others we did in that it is mainly an alpine desert environment and although visually stunning it did not rate as one of my favorites.

Himalaya Guide Nepal handled everything in their usual very professional way. Dinesh was again our guide and was simply wonderful. He has a very gentle manner and is attentive to your every mood and need. Because many of the trekking trails have been converted into roads. He went to extraordinary lengths to minimize our time on them by finding alternative routes. Because to ensure an authentic experience as was possible in the circumstances.

Over the years I have seen this company grow and prosper. And they fully deserve the high esteem they have earned from other trekkers. We will be using them again but probably for a different experience. I am keen to visit a Tiger reserve and spend more time around Pokhara. May be indulging in some paragliding.
