Here we can enjoy views of well-raised massifs of more than 8000 meters, and of the deepest gorge on this planet. On arrival in Jomsom you will meet the rest of the trekking staff. From Kathmandu you will have a guide with you. We start to trek towards Kagbeni, the main gate to Upper Mustang. Overnight at tented camp. (all meals and hots drinks included)
Day 5.
Trek to Chaile (3050 meters) The trail leads up towards the east bank of the Kaligandaki climbing over many ridges as it heads north and reaches Tangbe village. The town is a labyrinth of narrow alleys amongst white washed houses, fields of buckwheat, barley, wheat and apple orchards. The Nilgiri peak dominates the southern skyline of Kagbeni, which is characterised all the way by a wide variety of different shapes. Beyond Tangbe we reach Chhusang village in about 1/2 hr, then we trek and cross the river which continues north climbing up to a huge red chunk of conglomerate rock that has fallen from the cliff above, forming a tunnel that the Kaligandaki follows. The trek now leaves the Kaligandaki valley and climbs steeply up a rocky gully to Chaile. From here the culture changes from the Manangi culture to the Tibetan culture of Lo. Overnight at tented camp. (all meals and hots drinks included)
Day 6.
Trek to Geling (3500 meters). The climb continues along steep, treeless, waterless terrain, along the side of the spectacular steep canyon to a pass and a cairn of rock. Then the trail makes a long gradual descent to some chortens on a ridge, and with a further descent before coming along a pleasant trail to Samar village. We climb above Samar to a ridge, then descend into a large gorge, where the trail goes into another valley field, crosses a stream and climbs up to a ridge at 3800 meters. The route climbs over yet another pass, follows a ridge and then descends to Shyangmochen. From there we gently climb to a pass at 3770meters and descend to Geling Village. Overnight at tented camp. (all meals and hots drinks included)
Day 7.
Trek to Charang (3620 meters). From Geling village the trail climbs gently up to an the pass of Nyila and descends below the blue, gray and red cliffs. After crossing a steel bridge of the Tangmar Chu (river) you will arrive at a mani wall perhaps the longest and most spectacular one in Nepal. Climbing over another pass at 3600meters, the route makes a long gentle descent to Charang village. The huge five-story white Dzong and red Gompa are the main attractions to visit. Here we can also inspect the collections of statues and Thankas as well as many large paintings, of seated Buddhas. Overnight at tented camp. (all meals and hots drinks included)
Day 8.
 Trek to Lo Manthang (3840 meters). This is an opportunity to visit two other villages on your trek. The trail climbs steadily until Lo-Gekar. Lo-Gekar Gompa is older than Samye Gompa in Tibet and one of the oldest Gompas of Nepal. After visiting Lo-Gekar the trek continues to Lomanthang. The trail until Lo-Manthang is fine with some minor climbing. Finally from the ridge there is a view of the walled city of Lo-Manthang . After a short descent, we cross a stream then climb up into the plateau of Lo-Manthang. Overnight at tented camp. (all meals and hots drinks included)
Day 9.
Visit Namgyal Gompa and Tingkhar. It takes around 2 hours to Namgyal Gompa. Namgyal Gompa situated on a hilltop, serves as an important monastery for the local community, and also as a local court.

After visiting Namgyal Gompa and Tingkhar return to Lomanthang. Overnight at tented camp. (all meals and hots drinks included)
Day 10-.
Trek to Dhi (3410 meters) From Lo-Manthang the trail is straight till the Dhi pass (4100 meters) and then descends down to Dhi village. The trek from Lo Manthang to Muktinath is harder, but more rewarding and interesting than the west side of the valley. Dhi village is one of the best villages of the whole of Lo-mathang valley and it is more prosperous than others and is settled in a very suitable place. Overnight at tented camp. (all meals and hots drinks included)
Day 11.
Trek to Tange (3370 meters). From Dhi the trail goes along the river for around 2 hours and crosses it when we reach Damodar Kunda, one of the sacred lakes. There is no bridge on the river so we will need to walk across it in bare feet. After crossing the river the trail climbs up to a pass of 3850meters. It then goes through a grassless, treeless bare hill, and drops directly down to Tangbe village at an elevation of 3370m.Tangbe is a small village of around 30 houses most of them attached to one another. On the rooftops one can see piles of fire wood, reflecting the prosperity in their society. Overnight at tented camp. (all meals and hots drinks included)
Day 12.
Trek to Tetang/ Chusang (3022 meters). The trail takes us through a steep ridge of hills providing some fine views of the wind carved hills. Tetang is a village just up the hill from Chuksang, which we visited on the first day entering Mustang from Kagbeni. It was built between 2 hills, a safe place to avoid the strong winds that relentlessly beat the entire Kaligandaki valley. Overnight at tented camp. (all meals and hots drinks included)
Day 13.
Trek to Jomsom (2713meters). This is the last day of the trek. The trail goes through the village of Jharkot where one can visit the many attractions such as the Jharkot monastery, Tibetan herbal medical center and the old fortress of Jharkot which once served as a palace.
