NEW Upper Mustang Nepal Photography Tour April 2024

Nepal and Mustang Photography Tour | 07 - 20 April 2024

07th - 20th April 2024 Photography Mountain 14 Days

A fourteen day photography tour to Nepal to the incredible landscapes of Upper Mustang of Nepal.

Join me for an unforgettable photography tour to Nepal and Upper Mustang in April 2023. The photo tour will start in Kathmandu before we move to Upper Mustang in northern Nepal. This little-visited area of Nepal has much to offer photographers. From the high mountain peaks of the Annapurna range which skirt the eastern edge of the area; to villages where it seems time has remained still since the middle ages to street photography of the characterful local people.

Only opened to outside visitors since 1992, access to Upper Mustang is heavily controlled. During the first days of our Nepal photography tour, the permits required for our entry into the Upper Mustang region will be prepared for us.

Nepal offers many photographic opportunities from the cultures of both the Hindu and Buddhist religions, to the stunning mountain landscapes and the people that we’ll meet during our photography tour.

Our stay in Kathmandu is based in both three and four-star hotel accommodation where the hotels provide us with breakfast in the morning. In Upper Mustang though the accommodation is basic but comfortable with western style facilities.

During the Nepal photography tour which encompasses Kathmandu and some of the surrounding towns we will either be on foot or transport will be provided by our ground agent.

What To Expect?

What flights do recommend?

Kathmandu Tribhuvan (KTM) airport is served by a multitude of international flight operators from budget airlines to the more commercial airlines such as Turkish Airlines; Qatar Airlines and Air India. Recommended flights will be posted soon but please do get in touch.

Where do I meet you?

We will all meet at the arrivals lounge at Kathmandu Tribhuvan on 2 April 2023. Our driver will then take us to our first hotel where we will rest ready for the photo tour to start proper.

How about getting back to the airport?

Once we know all attendee’s departure flight times we can coordinate drop-offs at Kathmandu Tribhuvan airport.

Do I need a visa?

Yes, you will likely need to apply for a visa before going to Nepal. Only a handful of countries can access the country visa-free or with visa on arrival. It is recommended to apply for your visa online before departure so that the arrival process is quicker.

I’m worried about altitude sickness

Altitude sickness occurs above 2500m or around 8200 feet. If your journey goes up too quickly then there is the risk of altitude sickness occurring which is why the itinerary takes us up at a gradual pace. Each day participant’s oxygen levels will be checked to ensure that no one has to be taken back down.

Footwear?

Walking boots are perfect for the countryside and lighter shoes will serve you well in Kathmandu.

What camera kit should I bring?

A wide-angle lens (16-35), medium zoom (24-70) and a longer zoom (70-300) will be ideal to cover most compositional eventualities but don’t forget the macro lens if you have one. The most used will be in the 24-70 range as a super wide-angle doesn’t always translate, so make sure this focal length is covered. It’s best not to weigh yourself down, so why not bring an airport-style bag for all your kit and a smaller day bag, which you can decant equipment into throughout the day.

Do I need a computer?

Although not essential, it’s a great idea to bring a laptop computer with you so you can discuss imagery with me and others in the group. It really is a great learning experience, so it’s highly recommended to bring a laptop to learn and for personal entertainment.

What computer support do you give?

I try to make a point of tutoring digital photography to all my clients, to help complete the learning process. It really helps to have a computer session when tiredness takes hold, or inclement weather persists.

How do I pay?

It’s easy! Just use the Paypal buttons below to checkout. The balance will be due 4 weeks before the start of the tour/ workshop. You can always decide to pay the full amount upfront too if you wish.
