Duration: 15 Days   |   Based on 1 Review

The Lower Mustang trek is an epitome of a comfortable and easy-breezy trek in the Mustang region. Learn and immerse yourself in the uniquely authentic culture and the stunning monumental landscape, including some holy religious sites including Muktinath, Kagbeni and other monasteries along the way.

The Lower Mustang trek takes you through the world’s deepest river gorge, the Kali Gandaki River. As you move along the trail along the banks of the Kali Gandaki River, encounter the number of mules carrying loads on their back. This river is highly famous for Saligram, which is regarded to be a form of the Hindu God, Vishnu. Hence, the world’s deepest river gorge has significant importance for its sacredness.

The Lower Mustang trekking takes you across the ancient villages of Marpha, Jomsom, and Kagbeni, the trail eventually takes you to the highly sacred temple of Muktinath. The Muktinath temple bears a great significance for Hindu and Buddhist followers. The entire trek is guaranteed to be a wonderful experience. Especially as you trek from Muktinath to Kagbeni village, passing through white mud painted houses will give you an experience of exploring the untouched culture of the Musthagi People. As you make your way towards Jomsom, the point where the trip starts getting a bit windy and sandy but the stunning view of Nilgiri is rewarding and equally worth the journey.

This trek also gives you an opportunity to explore and experience the traditional lifestyle of Nepalese living high in the mountain shelters. The Lower Mustang trekking is an easy adventure full of opportunities to explore and traverse to the fullest. It does not require any prior trekking or hiking experience to walk on this trail, but you should be fit, healthy accompanied with a sense of zeal and enthusiasm.
