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!!
