According to Jamie McGuinness, the trail from Tanggye to Chuksang in Upper Mustang is “Oh wow, one of the best trails anywhere in Nepal!”
It starts with a river crossing followed by a direct and unrelenting 1200m climb. What follows is a ridge line with an easy trail that undulates gently but allows you to take in the majesty of the scenery all around you. This was stage 7 on the 1st Mustang Trail Race 2013.
To the south there are Annapurna and Dhaulagiri, two of the more challenging 8000m peaks. To the west are the villages that anyone visiting Upper Mustang passed through several days earlier. To the north, well it is possible to see the entire delineation of Mustang with the Tibetan border to the north beyond which are miles and miles of flat land. Along the ridge itself, occasional glimpses of the spellbinding landscapes that Mustang is famous for.
