At this time, the Mustang region was still completely closed off to foreigners and he had to obtain special permission from the government of Nepal in order to enter the region. Despite his arrival on the last day of the celebration (he was unaware of the observance of Tiji) the experience left a lasting impression on him. “The scenes I witnessed were so extraordinary and so unexpected that I dared not believe my eyes and even today I have some trouble in believing in the reality of what I saw that day.”

    15 wonderful days in Upper Mustang

    I've spent a couple of days with Ashok and his team in Kathmandu and then in Upper Mustang for a 10 days trek and I couldn't hope a better experience. Ashok is a hihly-skilled and versatile person, knowing a lot about cultural but also technical aspects of a journey at a very high altitude. I felt definitely safe with him and we had the opportunity to meet many locals and share a lot with them (food, traditional religious celebrations etc). Also, there's been a little delay in the initial schedule (due to weather) but he managed very easily to reassure me and then offered me this extra, so I wasn't preoccupied and could enjoy the most of it. Compared to many money-oriented agencies I've heard about, Eco Holiday Asia has other preoccupations than money, closer to proper retribution of the population and respect of the environment. Glad we could meet and I'm sure we'll see each other again. All the best, Alain, France.

    The tour was really well organized by Ashok. The guest houses where good and clean. In Lo Mantang we stayed in a Home stay what is the best way to see the live of the locals. Ashok came also with us and made great food for us. The service during this trip was excellent and I would go with him again. Thanks for the wonderful time in Upper Mustang.
