Renowned for its towering whitewashed mud-brick walls, gompas, and the illustrious royal palace, Lo Manthang is steeped in cultural significance. The palace itself, a nine-cornered, five-story marvel erected around 1400, stands as a testament to the region’s architectural prowess, representing the oldest surviving structure of its kind. Within the town’s confines lie four major temples – Jampa Gompa (Jampa Lhakhang), Thubchen Gompa, Chodey Gompa, and Choprang Gompa. Of these, Jampa Gompa, also known as God’s house, holds the distinction of being the oldest. Similarly, Choprang Gompa, dubbed New Gompa, offers a glimpse into the evolving religious landscape of the region.

What is the best time to trek?

The best time to trek to Upper Mustang hinges greatly on weather conditions, impacting both comfort and the overall experience. While treks occur year-round, certain seasons offer optimal conditions.

Spring (March-May): Spring draws mountain enthusiasts and travelers in abundance to Upper Mustang. Mild climates prevail, with daytime temperatures ranging between 16 to 22°C, though nights can be chilly, dipping below 0°C.

Summer (June-August): Despite coinciding with Nepal’s monsoon season, Upper Mustang remains unaffected, making it an ideal time to trek. During August’s full moon, locals celebrate a vibrant horse festival. Daytime temperatures range from 16 to 25°C, with nights cooling to -3 to 0°C.

Autumn (September-November): Autumn mirrors the clear skies of other Nepalese regions, offering splendid mountain vistas. However, afternoons can be windy. Daytime temperatures range from 12 to 20°C, with chilly nights averaging between -8 to -4°C.

Winter (December-February): Winter marks the end of the trekking season in Upper Mustang. Villagers migrate to warmer regions, resulting in lodge closures. Snow blankets the trails, rendering treks nearly impossible.

Trek travel insurance

Travel insurance is compulsory for the trek. All the trekkers must provide a copy of their comprehensive travel insurance policy certificate. The policy must cover medical and emergency repatriation – including helicopter rescue and evacuation expenses at high altitudes (up to 4,000m).

Trekking members are kindly requested to send their detailed insurance information after trek booking. In case of emergencies, we will be using the insurance policy and informational documents you sent us. It will help us arrange a quick and effective rescue operation, transfer for emergency medical help, etc. Please ensure that your insurance covers all costs incurred during mountain rescue service.

Before buying travel insurance, make sure to call the insurance company and recheck if they have heli-rescue up to 4,000m.

Drinking water

We recommend you bring a container for one liter of water. In the teahouses we can buy boiled water suitable for drinking with which to fill our bottles. Another option is to refill the water from the fountains that we find along the way or from the tap of the teahouses themselves, for this we have to count on water disinfectant tablets that we can find in pharmacies.


This trek package includes a dedicated day of rest in Lo Manthang to ensure proper acclimatization and mitigate the risk of altitude sickness, a condition that, while preventable, can prove fatal if symptoms are ignored.

Our itinerary is thoughtfully crafted to facilitate a gradual ascent, allowing the body ample time to acclimate to the changing altitude. Our experienced trekking leaders and guides possess extensive first-aid training and are adept at recognizing and managing altitude-related symptoms. We strongly encourage all trekkers to promptly notify their group leaders at the first sign of altitude sickness.

Rest assured that your health is our top priority, and our team is well-equipped to handle any medical concerns that may arise. Your trek leader or guide will offer valuable advice and precautions, emphasizing the importance of pacing yourself and staying hydrated throughout the trek. In the event of severe altitude sickness, immediate descent is the only effective remedy. Please be aware that your group leader retains the authority to halt the ascent if altitude sickness manifests. It’s crucial to recognize that susceptibility to altitude sickness varies among individuals.

Veg menu

Our choice to offer vegetarian menus during our yoga treks is inspired by the ancient relationship between diet and the spiritual practice of yoga.

We strongly believe that a plant-based diet is not only environmentally respectful but also provides all the essential nutrients for a healthy and fulfilling experience. Our vegetarian menus are thoughtfully crafted to offer a wide variety of delicious options that will tantalize your taste buds while providing the energy and nutrients required for your journey.


Along the trail, you’ll encounter WiFi at many of the teahouses, typically available for an additional fee paid directly to the teahouse. However, as we ascend to higher elevations, the internet connection may become increasingly unstable until it eventually disappears. While you have the option to purchase a SIM card in the city before the trek, similar to WiFi, the connection may become more unreliable as we venture into remote areas.

Fortunately, phone communication remains functional throughout the trek, and your guide will be in daily contact with the office to provide updates on the journey.

Battery recharge

During the trek, we will encounter charging points for our electronic devices in most of the teahouses. However, these services come with an additional charge that is paid directly to the teahouse.


Your safety and security are our top priorities. We implement various measures to ensure your well-being. Throughout the trek, we’ll have all the essential gear, equipment, and first aid kits on hand. Our trek guides are highly trained in wilderness first aid. In case of illness, the trek leader will assess the situation and determine whether to proceed or descend promptly. Additionally, we’ll stick together as a group while hiking.
