Upper Mustang Trekking
The Upper Mustang trek is the ultimate gateway to the mysterious world of the old Buddhist kingdom of Mustang, also called Lo. Once forbidden and isolated from the rest of the world for decades, the area was able to evolve within its own distinctive culture and rich traditions closely tied to Tibet. This moderate, lesser-known trek passes through one of the driest regions of Nepal and provides spectacular mountain scenery. It can’t get much more remote. Due to its inaccessibility, Mustang has long been protected from mass tourism and is now known as the last bastion of traditional Tibetan culture. Trekking to the Upper Mustang is one of the most fascinating places in the Himalayas, due to a long, rich and complex history.
You almost forget that you can trek there. You certainly can. The Upper Mustang Trek is the perfect combination of culture and trekking as it is intended. Far away from the more inhabited world and in the middle of the wilderness. Let the Himalaya embrace you and immerse yourself in the mysticism of the Mustang. The spectacularly tanned red cliffs and the endless variety of grey rolling hills of the Mustang will be engraved in your memory long after your return home. Add to that your experiences in the incredible towns of the Kingdom and the friendliness of the people of the Mustang.
