Overview

Trekking in the Himalayas is generally portrayed as trekking only in the Mountains. Well, in the context of the Nepali Himalayas, it's not true. The upper Mustang trek takes you through the most distinct and spectacular semi-arid landscape with the fusion of the distinct Tibetan culture. Upper Mustang is essentially a portion of the Tibetan Plateau, sometimes known as Tiny Tibet, and is located behind the Dhaulagiri and Annapurna Massifs. Being called one of the isolated regions of Nepal, the region is widely known for its unique Buddhist culture and Spectacular views of mountainous landscapes.  It has been successful in drawing the attention of adventurers, and today it is regarded as one of the top travel destinations on the planet.

This hidden paradise offers mysterious valleys, breathtaking trans-Himalayan scenery, historic Tibetan Buddhist temples, stupas, prayer walls, monasteries, and other historic attractions. The Tibetan-Nepali people you come across here will share their warm hospitality with you and introduce you to their distinctive culture and customs, which is perhaps the most important aspect of the journey.

Moreover, you get enough time to take a walk to historical sites like Lo Manthang, the former kingdom of the Mustang region. The historical sites are certainly rich in ancient history and important for the people of the region, which makes it a must-visit destination for travelers who want to explore the region and experience tourism in the full sense. Besides that, this trek also offers you the opportunity to witness the fortress, palaces, Caves hermitages, Tibetan plateaus, passes, and most prominent Kali Gandaki which is the deepest gorge in the world.

For your information, the Upper Mustang Trek only became accessible to non-Nepali trekkers fifteen years ago. But also even today, the area is very restricted. Only a small number of trekkers travel this trail because of its restrictions and expensive permits. So, for that reason, this trail is much less crowded. We do suggest you go do it before it gets changed.
