Upper Mustang Trek

Mustang lies in the north western part of Nepal it was once the part of the Tibetan Plateau. This region was officially opened to trekkers only in 1992 under special rules and regulation.

A trek to Upper Mustang is a journey of remarkable contrasts. Stark Tibetan landscapes contrast with lush rice fields and Hindu shrines with cliff hanging monasteries. In this wild lunar landscape of unreal color and beauty, ruggedly carved mountains reach up to deep blue skies, while icy peaks glimmer majestically to the south. Vast and barren ridges extend to the northern horizon making one feel like an insignificant dot on a timeless landscape. Upper Mustang trek is untouched by the outside world or the Chinese cultural Revolution, 16th century monasteries still remain active to preserve this magnificent trans-himalayan kingdom, with their unrivalled thankas, mandalas and deities.
