The flight to Mustang is a memorable journey in itself. From Pokhara you are within minutes flying over small villages dotted over the hillside with a backdrop of the world’s most enormous mountains. The plane flies at about half the height of those mountains. Make sure you get in the plane first to get a good window seat, Dhaulagiri to the left, Annapurna to the right.
Occasionally flights can be cancelled for safety if wind or visibility at either airport is compromised. In this case we’ll not wait and take a jeep to Jomsom. In good conditions with lunch breaks and tea-stops it takes nine hours – its long, but the scenery is glorious.
