What to Expect
Deep in the Annapurna Conservation Area, at the heart of the Himalayas, the picturesque region known as upper Mustang resembles the Tibetan plateau, home to yellow and gray rolling hills eroded by violent winds. This extensive and remarkable trek will let you discover some of Nepal’s most breathtaking and legendary regions, including the ancient Kingdom of Lo that shares a border with Tibet.
Formerly the Kingdom of Lo and a part of the Western Tibetan Kingdom of Ngari, 'forbidden' Mustang has lured intrepid travelers to its remote realm for centuries, but only the most adventurous made it to this mountainous and inaccessible bastion of Tibetan Buddhism. Exploration of this timeless, ethnically Tibetan region, untainted by foreign occupation is a privileged journey following some of the less trekked routes through this sun-drenched region of the middle Himalaya border region. The region is monsoon rain shadow area behind the Himalayan ridge just like Tibet. Some extra days are needed to explore the valleys above Lo, Luri Gompa and Yara, and to trek the remote route from Tetang to Muktinath. Many trekkers have also the privilege of royal audience at the royal residential palace at Lo Manthang the capital of Mustang. The king previously an absolute monarch still enjoys cultural authority and is well respected among the Mustangis.
