Tread through the ancient Trans Himalayan kingdom that was once forbidden to the outer world until it was officially opened to the foreigners in the year 1991. It still requires special permit from Nepal Government to visit this mystical land of Mustang. The last forbidden kingdom of Mustang not only shares its border but also its culture and traditions with the natives of Tibet. Upper Mustang Trekking is a thrilling voyage into the high Himalayan lands of Western Nepal which is popular for holding the ancient Buddhist kingdom of Lo.
The path to Upper Mustang Trek stretches through the vast expansion of arid lands that are deprived of vegetation. These lands are covered with the eroded sandstone columns, which are scattered across the valley. The Lomanthang city, the spiritual heart of Mustang, a thousand year old monastery, the fortified wall, ancient cultures and traditions that are similar to the neighboring Tibetans, the four storey palace in Lo- Manthang, caves and gratifying views of Nilgiri, Annapurna and Dhaulagiri Mountains are the major attractions of Upper Mustang Trek. Be a part of enticing Upper Mustang Trek and experience the awe-inspiring sensation of being surrounded by more than 35 mountains over 6000m height. As Mustang lies in the rain shadow of Dhaulagiri and Annapurna Mountains, it receives very little rainfall each year and thus Upper Mustang is the region that you should try if you plan to visit Nepal during monsoon season.
