Day 3
Trek to Chaile (3050 meter)

The trail leads up towards the east bank of the Kaligandaki climbing over many ridges as it heads north and reaches Tangbe village.

Drive by Jeep to Tetang/ Chusang (3022 meters). to Kagbeni - Jomsom
The trail walks through a steep ridge of hills providing some fine views of the wind carved hills. Tetang village is formed between 2 hills; they should have found it a safe place to avoid the strong wind that hits the entire Kaligandaki valley. Tetang is the upper village of the Chuksang, which we visit on the first day entering to Mustang from Kagbeni.

This is the last day of the trek. The trail goes through the village of Jharkot where one can visit the many attractions such as the Jharkot monastery, Tibetan herbal medical center and the old fortress of Jharkot which once served as palace. Continuing the trek towards Jomsom one will enjoy the views of the Kaligandaki valley and Kagbeni village. This is the entry point to Mustang.
