Unknown Mustang Jeep Tour

Mustang Jeep Tour to Lo Manthang

Pokhara to fabled Lo Manthang by Jeep - Incredible Himalayan Road Trip - Dhaulagiri & Annapurna - Upper Mustang

The fabled walled city of Lo Manthang, capital of Mustang, has enticed intrepid adventurers since tourists were first allowed to enter the forbidden Kingdom of Mustang. An unforgiving, arid and high altitude mountain desert landscape alongwith the necessity for challenging trekking and costly special permits to enter Upper Mustang were still sufficient to deter most people. Now with the advent of a rough and ready jeep road that extends up through the spectacular  Kali Gandaki Valley, between Annapurna & Dhaulagiri, it is possible to travel between and beyond the Himalayas onto the Tibetan Plateau and reach Lo Manthang by 4WD vehicle. Some things haven't changed though. The ochre coloured, wind eroded, untamed wildness of Mustang remains the same, as does the need for a special permit. But, what has changed is that on this Mustang Jeep Tour you can now reach Lo Manthang and explore this once forbidden mountainscape without having to trek hard and long. Our Mustang Jeep Tour from Pokhara to Lo Manthang over land is very much an adventurous Nepal cultural tour. The landscape has not been tamed and the journey is on a bumpy dirt road, which remains at the mercy of the mountain gods and the climate. However, for those who dreamt of travelling into Mustang and were deterred by the need to trek arduously, a whole new possibility now exists.

 

PLEASE NOTE: Although this remains a challenging adventurous journey, we have elected to avoid the "cheap and cheerful" approach. Accommodation featured is the "best available" including the Comfort Lodges (proper beds and en-suite) in Thasang and Kagbeni and also Guest Houses in Upper Mustang that although simpler, can provide the "luxury" of proper beds and en-suite facilities. We also use the best available 4WD "Land Cruiser" vehicles from Pokhara, not the "rough and not so ready" smaller and less reliable jeeps usually found in Upper Mustang.

 

This EXAMPLE ITINERARY is exactly that, an EXAMPLE. You can of course add in "extra things" like add leisure time in Pokhara, more time at each location along the way and additional days in Kathmandu, or whatever else you would wish for
