As you move along the trail along the banks of the Kali Gandaki River, encounter 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 a 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 it starts getting a bit windy and sandy but the stunning view of Nilgiri is rewarding and equally worth the journey.

Travel Insurances

Travelling is an investment and we believe that an insurance makes your investment secure. It is a condition of joining any of our adventure trips that be protected against comprehensive expenses potential to incur due to medial issues or accidents (to include helicopter rescue, air ambulance, and treatment costs). Please be noted that we do not arrange or sell insurance.

A relaxed trip is not possible without good travel insurance. In the event of any sickness or injury, the cost of emergency treatment and evacuation is shocking. Therefore, travel insurance is strongly recommended for everyone who signs up with us. We strongly recommend that you be careful while choosing a policy as some makes special exceptions for adventure travel. Before buying your insurance make sure your insurer is aware of our adventure itinerary that you are going to undertake and is agreeable to cover all activities being undertaken in the trip. Such as if you are planning trekking or climbing/expedition in Himalayas your insurance must cover emergency air ambulance/helicopter rescue including medical expenses. For a group tours in urban areas, your insurance coverage of ambulance or helicopter rescue is not mandatory, however better to have with them too. Again, in Tibet trips there is no possibility of helicopter rescue, so no need to buy the air ambulance coverage in Tibet trips. Also, check your insurance policy firmly to even include trip cancellation, as all deposits paid are non-refundable.

Please kindly provide us your copy of insurance policy (e.g. your insurance certificate) or carry it with you while you come on the trip.


Alpine Eco Trek is professionals at operating at high-altitude. Each trip we run has a realistic acclimatization programme. Our entire adventure trips are designed to allow gradual height gain, spread over a number of days. High altitude is not predictable sickness, so there is no way of predicting who will suffer from altitude but, for the vast majority of people, a slow ascent to height will produce minimal effects. We can provide 'Gamow Bag' as a precautionary measure as per your request on renting basis. Acclimatizing takes time and there are no safe shortcuts. All trips to altitudes in excess of 3,000 meters carry medicines essential to the treatment of altitude sickness, and our leaders, guides and staffs are well trained to administer them and to know the symptoms.
