Upper Mustang Trek - Apr 28 - May 15, 2017
This was a very expensive trip and several things could have been done better. I had payed for a full package but even then had substantial expenses towards drinking water 1-7 USD per liter depending on where on the trek, battery charging 4-6 USD per battery, hot shower 8-9 USD, WIFI 7 USD per day. These extra expenses are very particular to the area. I have never before experienced having to pay for all these things and. I am surprised that no-one has thought of informing of these extra costs.
Meals were provided but I was always only allowed to order 1 item per meal. This was really not enough when trekking for long hours every day.
Also tipping of guide and porter was a substantial extra expense - 250 USD shared among them. As a lone traveller this has been an extremely costly affair. The guide and porter I was happy with though.
I was overall very pleased with Ngima but I would have appreciated the information I have mentioned previously.
