About

Jeep tour of Mustang. With extension of dirt road, Upper Mustang have been popular jeep tour destination. Jeep tour or 4WD driving tour of Upper Mustang saves your travel days but allows more time to visit highlights of the trans-Himalayan region. The tour is done with licensed, knowledgeable and experienced guide and driver. It is a combination of road trip with excursions and cultural emersion experiences. There are several side hikes, village tour, visit of archaeological sites and monasteries to visit. The driving tour is just an alternate to Mustang trek. Tourists can still stay and eat in local tea house and visit all the places of the once forbidden kingdom.

Upper Mustang Jeep tour could be customized for as less as 6 days. However, we recommend the longer tour to enjoy the fast-changing landscape, Himalayan scenery and the ethnicity. You can also combine this driving tour with trek to Annapurna base camp, Mardi Himal or Poon Hill.

Lonely planet has listed Mustang trek in third position under its list of 'Best in Travel 2013'. The extensive road expansion will soon change its essence. So this is last chance to see Mustang.
