When deciding what goes into your bag, it is important to check out the characteristics of the trek as well as the season/month in which you are coming to Nepal. If you are thinking about what to pack, then here’s our recommended packing list and equipment.
In Kathmandu and Pokhara, there are a series of hotels available for all kinds of budgets. While you begin the tour from Kagbeni, you will find teahouses and guesthouses, locals operate that. The lodges are clean and with proper mattresses and blankets. There are single rooms and shared rooms for two people.
During peak seasons, the individual rooms may not be available. In that case, you will require sharing a place with your partner or colleagues.
Tour is to Upper Mustang is favorable in every season in Nepal. One can drive to the region during monsoon too. However, summer is the season of rain, and Upper Mustang receives a less amount of rainfall. It is a semi-deserted area. The place lies in the shadow of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri, which prevents Mustang from getting wet. Hence, Upper Mustang can be the best place to travel in Nepal during summer too.
Further, to minimize potential problems, autumn and spring season are recommended for international tourists. These are the most favorite seasons of every traveler that travels to Nepal. Weather and the climate of the Upper Mustang during autumn and spring are typical and offer obstructed mountain views.
This region was only opened for international tourists since 1992. Still, foreigners require a special permit (RAP) to enter the sector. People of Upper Mustang lives a typical mountain life and has a unique border rule for getting into the area. The department of immigration issues permits for Upper mustang to tourists. It does not grant single licenses; we need at least two people to get the permit. On the off chance that you are a solo traveler, please let us know. We will join you with other travelers' groups.
Your Jeep tour journey starts from Kagbeni, where police check your permits.
Best Days of My Life
I and my colleagues visited Nepal back in the year 2017. I was not an experienced hiker but anyway chose Annapurna Base Camp Trek with a trekking agency in Nepal. It was like a challenge for me to trek to the 4000 m altitude, but Mr. Ram helped us in every way possible. He was there from the start of our trekking journey in Pokhara to our end days in Kathmandu. Ram kept pushing me forward and even waited for me to catch the other team. He guided me from choosing plain food to meditating. Although I was a victim of altitude sickness and couldn't enjoy the trek to the fullest, I am very grateful to have chosen him.
Annapurna Base Camp is a beautiful place in the Himalayas. The Gurung Village, Poonhill, Pokhara every place was just outstanding.
I have now developed a hiking attitude, and I have been training for the EBC trek now. I can't wait to visit the Himalayas again.
Perfectly Organized Upper Mustang Trek
All thanks to Mr. Ram for organizing the Upper Mustang, trekking perfectly from beginning to end. I, along with my bunch of friends, had a delightful experience with the Heaven Himalaya team. For us, it is the best trekking agency in Nepal. The guides and porters were very flexible and took care of everything around us.
I recommend everyone to try these young guys to go hiking in Nepal.
Wonderful Trekking Experience
My wife and I visited Upper Mustang and were lucky to have chosen Heaven Himalaya. We had a wonderful experience trekking in Upper Mustang. As soon as we landed in TIA, we were welcomed by Ram. He was very easy and responsive to work with. He explained all the queries we had and gave a brief description of the tour. As we were watching videos and reading blogs about Upper Mustang, we had a lot of expectations about the place and the trekking agency we were working with. We had a private 18-day tour with a porter. And to be honest, we found everything beyond our expectations. The hills, mountains, monasteries were all amazing, especially Lo Manthang is a great place to visit. Our guide was also equally supportive and friendly. The team made our trek more enjoyable. While writing this, it reminded me of the days we had on the trails. Thank You again for the wonderful experience. Best wishes to Jason and Esha. We will definitely love to return and probably do the Everest base camp Trek this time.
Trip of a lifetime- Annapurna Circuit Trek
Heaven Himalaya Team offers a magnificently arranged trekking involvement in Nepal. Ramhari answered instantly to all my messages. They make a solid effort to make your vacation in Nepal an extraordinary one and genuinely went well beyond my desires.
I couldn't remember the name of the guide but my boy, you were more than amazing. I wish you good luck in the days to come.
Everything from pickup to trekking in the mountains was very professional with excellent service.
So, I strongly suggest everyone and will trek with Heaven Himalaya again in the future.
Glorious Experience in EBC Trek
We did an EBC trek with Ram and his team back in April 2019, and it was a glorious experience. Ram is a very knowledgeable, resourceful, and very helpful guide. 2 of us got unwell during the trek, and he was very prompt and took care of us in any way that was available.
We enjoyed our chat and his sense of humor along the trail and at the teahouses. He even got us a special breakfast and pickle salad at Namche Bazaar and always fulfilled the strange request with our dietary needs. EBC trek is amazing. With Ram, it is even more spectacular. Thanks for the amazing trip. Looking forward to island peak climb in the future.
