Kagbeni-Lo Monthang-Kagbeni/Muktinah

Planning to hire the guide from Kagbeni to Kagbeni. I will explore Jarkhot, Muktinah and some other villages close to Kagbeni after the trek. I trekked
Manaslu/Tsum Valley in 2014, and I also trekked EBC, Annapurna, Langtang
in the previous years. I will do lots of photography. I will arrange the guide
for this trip.

  1. Hi Stan,
    How are you! I’m thinking of doing the Langtang Gosaikunda trek in April so unfortunately we’ll miss each other by a few weeks. Weren’t you in that region? Take care and have a safe trip.

    • Hi Ali,
      I am eager to get out. I did the Langtang trek few years back, and I liked it.
      I got little sick there, and I skipped Gosaikunda. I may go there one more
      time. I will be trekking the Annapurna half circuit for the second time to get to Kagbeni, and start the Upper Mustang trek there. I will stop in CR after the Nepal trip. Enjoy your trip,

  2. Hi Stan,
    I’m interested, but having never been to Nepal so a little bit hesitant.

    • Hi David,
      thanks for your interest in the Upper Mustang. I already grouped with Kenn, and we
      have the following plans. We will start the Upper Mustang trek on March 17 in Kagbeni. There are two ways to get there.
      1. Flight KTM-> Pokhara
      2.Flight Pokhara -> Jamson (hike a few hours to Kagbeni)
      3.Bus to Pokhara, and fly to Jamson
      However, we decided to trek the Annapurna half circuit to get to Kagbeni. We will depart by bus out of KTM to Besi Sahar on March 4, and start the Annapurna
      from there. If you are interested only in the Upper Mustang we can meet in Kagbeni on March 17. You will need a special permit $500, permits for the Annapurna, and we would share the cost of guide and porter. The guide is mandatory for this trek. We are arriving to KTM on March 2. We would need to
      arrange the permits before we come to KTM through our agency in KTM. Don’t
      worry about the first time in Nepal. Let me know if you would like to join us, and
      if you plan to participate only in the Upper Mustang trek. 30 days is required for both treks. I can provide more details, once you decide.

    • I might do part of the first part with you. I’m planning on heading to India around 20MARCH so I wouldn’t be able to do Upper Mustang.

    • Hi David,
      you will need to get ACAP entry permit and TIMS card which you can obtain
      from any agency in KTM. They can arrange it by the second day. I will be arriving
      in KTM on March 3 am, and leaving by the first bus around 7:00 am to Besi Sahar on March 4 or 5. Possibly taking the jeep from Besi Sahar to Syange, and start to trek from here on the next day. I am planning to stay two days in Manang, Muktinah, Kagbeni, and explore the side trips. Let me know if you want to join me.
