I want to go to Upper Mustang this year, what is the permit charge to enter upper mustang? which time is best to go there? Can we go alone there or we need guide, how much charge for guide?. Is the Permit charge for same if we go with bike or trekking there?
I am coming from Argentina, this is my first visit to Nepal so totally unaware about the place.
i am also planning to go lower mustang if upper mustang is not possible, what kind of permit do we need to enter lower mustang, is it same as upper mustang? I have seen lots of picture in internet, so i want to go there with motorbike, do we need mechanics as well? charges for them?
There is lots of motorbike renting center when i search in google, any one have good recommendation for motorbike rental or tour package for both upper mustang or lower mustang? i have driving license from Argentina, is it enough to drive in Nepal?
I am very excited to go there but need suggestion for this trip.
We would like to welcome you to country of Himalaya first! Mustang is top destination for the riders all over the world.
So as per your queries, here is the details below.
We will suggest you to take Guide to drive there, it will be easier to know more about the place, culture, history etc.Most of the people get lost during travelling so it will be best to hire a guide. Normally Guide charge is around USD 35 to USD 45 Perday (Including Fooding & Lodging).
Best season to travel Upper Mustang and Lower Mustang is August-Dec, Feb-April
Yes permit charge is Same for both motorbiking and Trekking.
We also suggest you to take Mechanics during your trip. It might be difficult to repair bike in case anything happen to the bike during travelling, because there are only few repairing centers on the way to Mustang. Mechanics charge is also same as Guide.
You need to get TIMs card & ACAP to enter mustang. You will need two auto sized photographs, passport photocopy including Nepal visa to get the permits. You can get it from Nepal tourism board in Kathmandu as well as in Pokhara.
7. You can also drive with your driving license from your country! International driving license is prefer.
