Naar to Upper Mustang GHT trek

This is an adventurous trek from Naar village through a very remote region following the Great Himalaya Trail to the semi-independent Kingdom of Upper Mustang near the Tibet border.

Our Naar to Mustang GHT trek in October 2017 is now guaranteed to run and there is currently availability, please get in touch with us soon if you like to join this group.

Our leader Adrian Summers successfully trekked Naar to Mustang GHT over Teri La in 2013 and has posted his superb photos in a slideshow online on Adobe Spark at Back Road to Mustang

After leaving the Annapurna Circuit at Chame we walk to the isolated village of Nar then from there crossing the rarely travelled Teri La pass (5,595m) to enter Upper Mustang.  

The valleys of Naar and Upper Mustang are arid and dry with colourful rock formations containing many cave dwellings high up in the cliffs. The first trekking parties were allowed into Upper Mustang in 1992 and there are still few people visiting Upper Mustang as a result it is one of the few places left where one can see undisturbed Tibetan culture.
