The Upper Mustang trek is a remote semi-independent Tibetan Kingdom north of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri Mountains and is one of the last bastions of undisturbed Tibetan culture in the world. It brings you into the hidden world of the old Buddhist kingdom of Mustang, also called Lo. Lo used to be part of the Tibetan empire and is therefore closely tied to Tibet in culture, language and geography.
This trek takes you to the capital Lo-Mangthang in the fascinating upper Mustang region. The regions isolation from the outside world has contributed to a highly preserved Tibetan culture and unspoiled nature. Mustang lies in the rain shadow of the Dhaulagiri massif creating a ruggedly arid land surrounded by rocks in all kind of colors and impressive formations. This barren landscape is dotted with settlements of white washed houses, barley fields and chortens festooned with prayer flags which add a splash of color to the landscape.
Hidden behind the majestic Himalaya ranges, Mustang is a truly beautiful trek zone. Special Area trekking Permits are required by trekkers when they visit this region.
