ABOUT ME

My name is Karma Dhundup Bista, and I am from the beautiful village of Dhee in Upper Mustang, Nepal. I was raised in the village, along with one brother and two sisters, by my parents. Our traditional family home in Dhee, build in a Tibetan style, is now a guesthouse run by my family. I have a strong connection to my family, my culture, and my village.


After finishing school, I left for Kathmandu to continue my studies. I am now a fully licensed, independent trekking guide in Nepal, including courses in high altitude medical training. I also have experience working as a guide and research assistant in my home of Mustang district. These days, I am working as an independent trekking and tour guide. I am excited to take you on some of the most beautiful trails in Nepal and the Himalayas. Allow me to show you authentic culture and beautiful mountains, landscapes, and villages.


Most importantly we will experience them by developing friendships with local people and learning about the cultural setting of Mustang that tour groups without local guides cannot see. My main focus is to show you both the beauty of the landscape and the people of Mustang. Because I was raised in Upper Mustang, I can take you off of the most common trails and out of hotels and into the homes of my friends and family. Together, we will eat traditional foods and explore the secret places of Mustang. I will show you the real Nepal. 

Many guides working with trekking agencies are not local. I decided to become a freelance guide to share my love for Mustang with you, and so that you can enjoy learning about the real Mustang. Work with me, and we can cut out the middle man. Contact me, and we will design your Mustang trip together to fit your curiosity and hope to explore the hidden places of Mustang.

TREKKING IN LOWER AND UPPER MUSTANG

I recommend that you visit Mustang all year round. It is most popular for trekking between February and November. Winter trekking is very beautiful and unique experience, although you should be prepared for snow if you visit in the winter. Because most of Mustang is located in the rain shadow of the Himalayas, it only rains very rarely during the monsoon season from late May to August. For this reason it is the perfect monsoon trekking destination in Nepal.

It is important to know about the permits required to visit Lower and Upper Mustang. For Lower Mustang, visitors only need to purchase a $30 USD ACAP permit which can last up to 90 days. For this reason, trekking in Lower Mustang is less expensive. The permit required for Upper Mustang costs $500 USD for ten days, and then another $50 USD for every day following that. In addition, you must also buy the ACAP permit.  

Because Upper Mustang is a restricted region, you may not enter alone. It is required that all foreign visitors are accompanied by at least one other foreigner and a licensed guide. It is illegal to enter without a guide or permit. Let's discuss your trek together and I  will make all of the arrangements for permits and other necessities.

 

UNIQUE PLACES AND EVENTS

We can design custom itineraries for people who want to explore the culture of Mustang. In addition to villages and temples, we can also experience beautiful festivals and other places not seen by normal trekking groups.

The yartung festival takes place in many villages. During the festival you can see many displays of horse riding skill and archery.
