Trip Code: MUM
Upper Mustang is one of the most popular regions for trekking in Nepal. It lies north of the Annapurna region just behind Mount Dhaulagiri and Mount Annapurna massif very close to the Tibetan border.
Geographically Upper Mustang has long been isolated from the outside world and only recently opened to trekking groups. The trek to Upper Mustang begins with a flight to Jomsom from Pokhara where we make our way through a quaint medieval town of Kagbeni, brightly painted chortens (Buddhist shrines) and tiny villages guarded by enormous monasteries.
While walking along this barren land our collective minds are blown with great views of the snow-covered Himalaya to the south, and desolate high plateaus, deep canyons and an ocean of windswept hills exploding with the colors of the sunset on the desert to the north. Once we reach the walled capital city of Lo-Manthang, we'll absorb in a great sense of timelessness and appreciation of the ancient culture as we discover the ruins of old forts and monasteries rich in art and history plus caves replete with magnificent religious statues. While visiting at Kagbeni (2,858m), Syanbochen (3,475m) on the way Lo-Mangthang (3,810m) you will find the living images which reflect the society of the primitive time. Most of the places along the trail offer you to enjoy the magnificent views of Himalayas before our eyes.
Those who love to explore ancient villages and experience the cultural and natural diversity of the Buddhist land in Nepal can join our 19 days exotic trip. If you are looking for Tiji Festival in Upper Mustang, the month of May will be the best. The great festival is held on the premises of the Mustanghi king’s palace in Lo Manthang. Despite monsoon in other parts of Nepal, we can organize trekking during June, July and August.
