I am taking a sabbatical year to explore some of the mountains I haven't been able to get to yet! I have spent a large portion of my life outdoors, and backpacking is my religion! I love getting to know new people and look at every trip as an epic adventure.

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 October

October begins the most popular time to trek, with moderate temperatures, clear skies in the wake of the monsoon, and a low chance of rain and snow. In recent years, the monsoon rains have receded later with weather patterns typically stabilizing in mid-October. While the chance of snow is decreased, there is the possibility of a heavy snowfall at higher elevations. If ill-timed and prolonged, this can make it difficult to cross some passes.

At a glance
On average there are 4 days with precipitation in October. The highest point on the trek is Teri La at 5595 m. During October, expect high temperatures of around 1.8°C (35°F) and lows down to -12.2°C (10°F) at Teri La.
