Nepal is a landlocked country which lies in Hindu Kush Himalayan region. Nepal has monsoonal climate having four main seasons: spring, summer, monsoon, autumn and winter.

I did Upper Mustang trek with my husband and it was an interesting trek of lifetime. The beauty of Mustang region and walled city Lo Manthang was very astounding and the guide Phurba was very friendly and helpful. We could say him anything and he would have managed in no seconds being probably the best guide one could ever have wished for. Everything was perfectly managed from our landing to departure. The accommodations were very comfortable with available hot water shower. It was very difficult to walk during some trials because of the wind blowing the dust. I suggest everyone to have sunglasses with you otherwise the dust particles may enter into your eyes. These were just the natural barriers but otherwise the company’s service was great and wonderful. I highly suggest this company to everyone. Weston Naylor, Canada
