“Incredible! Our jeep tour to Upper Mustang with NepalHiking was an experience of a lifetime. The rugged landscapes, ancient monasteries, and remote villages took our breath away. The knowledgeable and friendly guide made the journey memorable, sharing fascinating insights about the region’s history and culture.

The jeep was comfortable and well-maintained, allowing us to navigate the challenging terrain easily. The sights we encountered along the way, from the mystical caves of Lo Manthang to the stunning views of the Nilgiri and Annapurna ranges, left us in awe.

The team at NepalHiking ensured that every aspect of the tour was well-organized, from accommodation in charming guesthouses to delicious local cuisine. The whole experience felt authentic and immersive.

If you’re looking for an adventure that combines breathtaking landscapes, cultural exploration, and the thrill of off-road travel, I highly recommend the jeep tour to Upper Mustang with NepalHiking. It’s an adventure you won’t soon forget!”

In May, we six friends decided to trek the Upper Mustang journey. After looking at a few businesses, we received an email from one of my friends who had previously taken services from the Nepal Hiking agency.
Tilak and Bhairam at the agency responded to all of our enquiries when we called them. They gave us all the information we needed to know before our trip, and they offered fantastic service throughout. Therefore, we can’t think of anything to complain about them.
They provided guides and porters, who were friendly and helpful. At all times, we felt safe. Also, the weather was perfect.

If you’re looking for world-class trekking experiences Nepal Hiking is the way to go!
