Upper Mustang and Muktinath Trekking

Lo-Manthang & Muktinath TrekkingAt present Mustang is a very popular trekking region in Nepal. The Home Ministry of Nepal announced the opening of the restricted areas in October 1991. There is also strict control in obtaining a special permit from the Department of Immigration to protect their tradition from outside influence as well as to protect their environment. According to government rule, liaison officers should always accompany with the trekking groups. The high desert region of the Tibetan influence, Kaligandaki, from the Tibetan border south to Kagbeni is generally referred to as " Upper Mustang" that has its own nominal king. 

 

Muktinath TrekkingUpper Mustang and Muktinath trekking is one of the very few places on earth which is not spoilt by trekkers. Being under the rain shadow of the Himalayas, the area receives scanty rainfall making the region dry and arid-very similar to the adjoining Tibetan plateau. The trek to Lo-Manthang is through an almost tree-less barren landscape, a steep rocky trail up and down hill and panoramic views of Nilgiri, Annapurna, Dhaulagiri and several other peaks make your trek memorable.
