Weather

Upper Mustang an ideal destination during the months of June to September but the beauty of the region does not seem to change regardless of the change in seasons. As the region doesn’t see much rain throughout the year, journeying in monsoon is also possible as long as the weather remains clear during the day for a takeoff. While March till Late December sees tourists journey into the region, make sure to stray clear of winter treks. From the second week of December locals slowly start deserting the valley making their way to the lower levels due to the cold winters which sees temperatures fall as down as -20 degree Celsius.

Clothing

With strongwinds dominating the majority of the valley, make sure to have:

  • Windproof jackets and warm winter jacket
