About Upper Mustang Trekking
Mustang can be termed “Fertile Plain” literally; the former kingdom of Lo and now it is a part of Nepal, bordering the Tibetan plateau which was opened for the tourist in March 1992. Upper mustang is a barren valley with Trans Himalaya. Mustang was once an important route for crossing the Himalaya between Tibet and Nepal, and many of the old salt caravans passed through Mustang. This is an area where we will trek to, discovering the wonders of the architecture, language, their interesting culture, and traditions which are almost purely Tibetan.
Trekking in the Mustang region is a unique experience that takes you to an arid region beyond the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri. The route entails traveling across the desert-like landscape, barren ridges, deep canyons, eroded cliffs and moraine valleys. Trekking in Mustang is truly one of the most rewarding experiences in Nepal. So, through this trek, you will have a close-up view of the primitive society that has remained unaffected by modernization for centuries.
