Lower Mustang Tour With Muktinath (10 Nights | 11 Days)
Kathmandu - Pokhara - Muktinath - Kathmandu
Flying up through the deepest river gorge in the world, you head up the mighty Kali Gandaki into the mountains. Touching down in Jomsom, you are driven to Kagbeni, an old trading point where Tibetan used to cross into Nepal. Here you can peak into the ‘ Forbidden Kingdom’ of Upper Mustang. You visit the Muktinath, a very holy pilgrimage site where thousands of Hindu and Buddhist pilgrims come every year. During these four days, you explore this fascinating corner of the Himalayas, visiting local monasteries, exploring ruined villages and looking in on meditation caves. Hiking in Lower Mustang, it is you start early in the morning to avoid the sometimes fierce and cold winds that whip up the Kali Gandaki River gorge by late morning.
Trek Grade: The Trek Grade is 1-2 as the hikes are short and not at very high altitude (under 3000m). The only time you are walking at a higher altitude, this is to walk down from Muktinath.
