Pokhara/Jomsom (flight or helicopter)
March – November
To reach Mustang, you must take a short mountain flight or a helicopter from Pokhara to Jomsom. This dry region lies in the rain shadow, and is therefore an ideal destination during the monsoon months June-September.
Windswept dessert landscapes and well-preserved Tibetan cultural heritage makes this an exciting region for any adventurer in search of exceptional experiences.
Lower Mustang is home to the popular pilgrim destination Muktinath and many trekkers walk through here on their way around the Annapurna Circuit. Upper Mustang requires a special permit, making this hidden kingdom an exclusive cultural encounter reserved for the few.
