Upper Mustang Trek

Situated in the North of the Annapurna Himal and bordering Tibet (China), the mustang Region used to be called Mustang kingdom and was closed to foreigners. Even after it was included Nepalese territory, entry was tightly restricted for foreigners. Consequently, it drew much attention as prohibited Kingdome. Mustang is a most remote areas, it is a geographic extension of the Tibetan plateau, a windswept land of mountains preserving the last authentic remains of Tibetan culture. This area was completely isolated from the rest of the world, and only opened to trekking groups in 1991. The barley, potatoes and buckwheat grown here are the staple diet of the villages through which our trek passes to reach the ancient walled fortress city of Lo Manthang. From here the border of Tibet is just a stone's throw away. From Lo Manthang we can either return along from same trail or head back to Jomsom by way of the sacred pilgrimage site of Muktinath.
