Mustang Festive Season Draws Huge Tourism Influx

In a remarkable resurgence, the Mustang district experienced a surge in tourism last month, welcoming nearly 80,000 visitors, primarily driven by domestic tourists reveling in the festive season.

According to data from the District Police Office, Mustang witnessed a significant influx of tourists, with 5,504 international visitors and a staggering 73,879 domestic tourists exploring the region during the month of Kartik.

Tracking international tourist numbers, the Annapurna Conservation Area Project (ACAP) offices at Jomsom and Lhomanthang, along with the Ghasa and Lete Police Posts maintaining records of domestic tourists, reflected this upsurge.

Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Bhojraj Pandey highlighted the festive spirit, noting bustling tourist crowds during Dashain, Tihar, and Chhath. He further indicated that approximately 14,000 vehicles transported tourists into Mustang during this vibrant period, with travelers utilizing both the Beni-Jomsom route and the Pokhara-Jomsom air route.

Hotelier Surendra Gauchan from Hotel Ranipauwa in Muktinath expressed enthusiasm over the heightened tourist footfall during Kartik. Gauchan attributed this increase to improved road networks and favorable weather conditions, noting a preference for Mustang among travelers seeking short trips.

Autumn’s favorable climate has traditionally made it an ideal time to explore Mustang’s attractions, drawing tourists to sites like Muktinath, Jomsom, Kagbeni, Lhomanthang, Marpha, Thini, and Dhumba Lake.

Amidst this surge, stakeholders and hoteliers in Mustang have expressed their delight at the resurgence in tourism, signaling positive momentum for the region’s travel industry.
