Naar to Upper Mustang GHT trek

Naar to Upper Mustang GHT is an adventurous trek from Naar village through a very remote region to the semi-independent Kingdom of Upper Mustang near the Tibet border. After leaving the Annapurna Circuit at Chame/ Koto we walk to the isolated village of Naar then from there walk up the remote Lapse Khola river. At the end head of this valley we cross the rarely trekked Teri La pass (5,595m) to enter Upper Mustang.

Upper Mustang is 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 it is one of the few places left where one can see undisturbed Tibetan culture.

There are exposed sections on the descent from Teri La pass so it is necessary for anyone joining this trek to have accurate foot placement while walking and confidence in walking on rocky terrain without a defined trail. There was also a fresh landslide area with larger rocks and boulders to cross and it is likely this may have been caused by the 2015 earthquake. This is a rarely trekked area in a remote region of Nepal where there are only a few other trekking groups each season attempting to cross Teri La pass.
