All about Upper Mustang Motorbike Tour Permit
To embark on this extraordinary odyssey, it is essential to obtain the necessary permits that grant you access to the realms of the Upper Mustang. These coveted permits hold the key to unlocking a world of wonder and exploration.
Priced at $500 for a 10-day duration, they serve as a gateway to realms untouched by time. Beyond the initial 10-day period, a modest fee of $50 per day ensures that your journey can continue, unfettered by constraints. Remember, these permits are measured in days, commencing and concluding in the enchanting village of Kagbeni.

Furthermore, certain sections of Mustang fall under the watchful gaze of the Annapurna Conservation Area Project (ACAP), necessitating an additional permit from this esteemed organization. It is important to note that the acquisition of a restricted area permit requires a minimum of two intrepid souls journeying together; individual permits shall remain elusive.
