The Upper Mustang Region

A forgotten land set alight by red cliffs, brightly coloured Tibetan flags and deep green valleys

The Upper Mustang region is unlike anywhere else we go. On this trip you’ll find yourself on a journey of discovery along an ancient trade route. The valleys are green and fertile, whilst the mountains on all sides share a resemblance with Western Utah. Except there’s one significant difference, these Mustang mountains hold around 10,000 human-built caves dating back at least 2,000 years! On this expedition-style trek, you’ll have plenty of time to get in the swing of things and detach yourself from the ties of Western Civilization. You’ll fall in love with the simple pleasures of camping, walking and reflecting.

Why travel with Active Adventures?

Above all, we aim to be amazing hosts. We're proud of our kiwi roots, and our professional, warm and relaxed style of running trips around the world is unforgettable.

We're VERY picky about who we select to work in our team, and we have people from all over the world lining up to guide our trips. So we get to hire the absolute BEST in the business.

As soon as you get off the plane, we've got all the details of your vacation covered – top notch meals, comfortable transport & accommodation, amazing guides and INCREDIBLE service.

Whether you’re new to adventure travel, or you’ve never travelled in a group before, you’ll find yourself arriving home positively different from when you left.

With our small groups (no more than 14), you'll get to know our team, your fellow travellers, and have the flexibility and freedom to do as much (or as little!) as you like.

It's all about getting there under your own steam – on foot, in a sea kayak, or by bike. What better way is there to experience mind blowing scenery? If it's your first time, no worries – our expert guides have got you covered.
