It is a luxury jeep tour into the Trans-Himalayan region that has served as an alternative to the Upper Mustang Trek. This 4WD Jeep journey, which is also quite popular with tourists, covers various scenery and traditional culture in a short duration in one of Nepal’s prohibited lands. As a result, it has become a well-known Jeep Tour location that has been combined with a road trip.

Upper Mustang is better known for trekking, but it is now necessary to construct a rough road in the area, and a driving tour is also possible, with four-wheel jeeps being one alternative. In your journey, Nepalgram Adventure provides a comfortable jeep with a knowledgeable and pleasant guide.

Your journey begins from Kathmandu. You’ll fly from Kathmandu to Pokhara, Nepal’s natural place. Fly from Pokhara to Jomsom on the same day.

The next day, begin driving and arrive in the lower Mustang area for the night. On the way to your driving trip, a number of nearby villages offer tourist-standard lodging and meals. Another day of driving and lodging in the lower Mustang region, where there is less forest, Tibetan settlements, and spectacular mountain ranges.Villages seen during Upper mustang jeep tour in Nepal

  On the third day of your journey, after departing from Kathmandu, you will pass through a restricted area cross-checking point and arrive at the Upper Mustang region. The Upper Mustang Jeep Tour passes through gorgeous Barley and Buckwheat fields, apple orchards, Chorterns, and traditional dwellings. Driving through Upper Mustang passes through Chele village (3050m) and Syangboche (3800m), two large communities. You’ll also have to traverse the Nya La pass, which is 4010 meters high. There will be a lack of oxygen and minor breathing issues. The surrounding area has less vegetation and is extremely windy during the day. Reaching Ghami (3490m) and resting will help your body acclimate to the high altitude.  

    Our ultimate destination is Lo-Manthang, the capital of Upper Mustang within one single day of driving from Ghami.

    Lo-Manthang is a fortified city with walls. Lho manthang connecting with the Tibetan border has made a huge influence in inter border connectivity between Tibet and Nepal. The village is noted for its tall white-washed mud-brick wall, century’s oldest monasteries, king’s palace, and caves. Panoramic Mountain view of the brown mountains from Lo Manthang is interesting.

    Excursion around Lo-Manthang covers all the famous landmarks. One day as an excursion day is included in our itinerary, thus we will stay one extra day and visit the upper region of Lo-Manthang, full day.

    One of the famous festivals in the Upper Mustang area is the Tiji festival and is held in Lo-Manthang.
