Lo-Manthang, Lori Gumpa and Muktinath Trekking

An unique and forbidden trail with panoramic views.

Upper Mustang TrekkingLo-Manthang's (Upper Mustang) culture is deep rooted in the religious sentiments of its people. The township abounds with many chhortens, mani-walls and monasteries. Prayer flags flutter above all the houses-conveying mantras to all corners of the world. The Lobas are exclusively Buddhists and conform to the Sakya-pa sect of Tibetan Buddhism. Bon prevailed before Buddhism, which was later replaced by Ningma Pa Sect (Dhakar-Kayu subsect) and subsequently by Sakya Pa Sect (Sakyapa, Ngorpa subsects) of Buddhism. Of the three Gompas in Lo-Manthang, the Jhampa Gompa is the oldest. It was built in 1387 AD during the reign of the famous king Anguin Sangbo and is believed to be a replica of Ghangtse Jhampa Gompa of Tibet, which still exists in Ghangtse is near by Khasa (Zhangmu).


Chele Mustang-TrekkingMustang region lies in the western part of Nepal and is officially the name of the district having a Tibet like region. It is accessible by foot trail or by air.

Upper Mustang is largely inhabited by Manangi people and goes up to the ancient capital of Lo- Manthang. Whereas Lower Mustang covers the part of lower valley along the Kali Gandaki river.
