Trekkers or customers question about the Upper mustang trekking?
Very nice and great blog about the upper mustang trekking. we have just 15 days for Nepal and upper mustang trekking. My girl friend and i like to come in May or Tiji festival there. could you provide us restriction permit and Guide. we like to pay ourself not package?
Smith from Belgium
Thanks for inquiry us about the upper mustang trekking. we are waiting with great hospitality and hurried to service you as well as we thought it is our great chances to get a opportunity to serve you. For the mustang trekking permit as you know cost $500 per person for 10 days. Then you need a Annapurna conservation area permit cost Rs. 2000 NPR. To make such kind of the restriction permit , needed a service charge if not package trekking. service charge cost $ 150 usd per person. Also i noticed you , minimum 2 perosn in a group for the upper mustang trekking.
If you have no group, we try to find out the group by passing the mail other trekking agency via Trekking agent association of Nepal. for other information about the permit issue of the upper mustang in case one person trekking there, it will be expensive. you need some other person passport , then have to pay their restriction fee plus other extra service charges. if you have just 15 days time in Nepal, i suggest you go to pokhara by flight then flight to jomsom another days. It will take 1 or 2 official days two make the permit after you arrival in Nepal because immigration of Nepal ask the original passport to know the trekkers details.

Thanks for your question and inquiry about the upper mustang. First things to apply the upper mustang trekking we have to send the Guide name in immigration at the time of the apply the permit. Second things , every Check point of the Upper mustang trekking have to signature for the entry and exist by the trekking guide and asking the Guide license. In one words, without guide, there is no allowed the trekkers in restriction areas. If in case this things find, trekking agency listed the black list. so, it is very important , to take or hire a guide of this trekking area. Service charge of upper mustang trekking cost $200 per person and trekking guide cost $35 per day if you like to only permit from the agency. In this prices included the government tax, vat and no hidden other cost. But that is your choices tips of the guide. may be , you think why trekking agency take expensive or cheap service charge for the making the permit? Trekking agency have to pay the tax and vat every restriction areas more than other normal trekking route.as you are already experience in Nepal trekking , probably you heard and read more about that. Any way keep and touch.
