Exploring both the Upper Mustang and Nar-Phu restricted areas, this adventurous trek crosses the Teri La, a remote high pass between the two regions. Camping gear is required since there are no permanent settlements between Nar and Tangge. These two strongly Tibetan influenced regions are littered with shrines, monasteries, caves and villages built by the devote Buddhist population. These cultural sites decorate an impressively spectacular landscape of eroded cliffs high mountain vistas, colorful canyons and deep valleys.

Weather Conditions in September

Mid-September marks the start of the ‘Fall Season’ historically the monsoon would end in mid-September, however in recent years the monsoon has officially withdrawn in early October. While there is a good chance of precipitation, clear skies and lush, rice paddy terraced hills are your spectacular when it is not raining. The chance of rain decreases as the month progresses. The end of the monsoon means there is still a chance of the occasional heavy snowfall at high altitudes. Furthermore, high passes can have a lot of snow that has accumulated over the monsoon.

At a glance
On average there are 15 days with precipitation in September. The highest point on the trek is Teri La at 5595 m. During September, expect high temperatures of around 2.8°C (37°F) and lows down to -7.2°C (19°F) at Teri La.
