    Biking Mustang is a little bit hard and tiresome activity that requires a lot of physical movement. So, pack your active wears and trekking pants for at lower altitudes.

    In some villages, you can make local and international calls from telephone provided by the guesthouse owner after paying the price directly. Our guide is also provided with a mobile phone. In case of emergency, you can use his mobile and make a call.
  • 19. Can I add extra days to my trip ?
    If you need extra day to complete the trip, you'll need to inform the guide in advance and the guide will let the company know. Adding a day to trip can result in many changes in other arrangements such as transportation, guide’s schedule, flight details, hotel bookings and all, so we really don't recommend this to our clients unless there is an emergency case. But it is true that those changes could be made but it will cost extra. The best way to do it is to inform the agent company about it.
