Upper Mustang Trek - 20 Days

Upper Mustang is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Nepal. This is the former kingdom of Lo. One of the remote and isolated regions of Nepal Himalayas. Upper Mustang is opened for the western tourist from 1992 until 1992 it was a restricted area. The culture and the tradition in this area are similar to the Tibetan. They speak also the Tibetan Languages as well. The North two-third parts comprise of Mustang district and the Southern third district, which is the settlement of Thakalis. They speak Thakali, Nepali, and Tibetan as their language. This region lies in the rain shadow area of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges.

The region with its sparse high valleys looks more like a part of Tibet. The capital of Lo Manthang, as well as the surrounding caves, monasteries, and stupas, provide a deeply Buddhist cultural landscape that is almost medieval. The caves in Mustang are also very popular and it is an interesting history together. Our guide will explain the history of the caves, Monasteries, and stupas while you are in upper Mustang treks.  The name “Mustang” derives from the Tibetan word which means, “Plain of Aspiration.”

From the passes when crossing them you will also enjoy the magnificent view of Mt. Dhaulagiri (8167m.), Mt. Annapurna (8091m.), and Nilgiri (7061m.), and the other surrounding snow-capped mountains. Visitors can do this trek with two different kinds of itineraries. One is the direct way to lo manthang and back the same way and the other route goes to Yara and Ghara village to visit the ancient cave monastery which is called Luri Gompa and the Tashi kaboom cave.
