About this tour

Upper Mustang Trek in Nepal is a unique and rare experience for trekkers looking to explore a remote region with a distinct Tibetan cultural influence. Located in the Mustang district of the Annapurna region, the Upper Mustang Trekking has been a restricted area for foreign visitors until 1992, making it one of the most exclusive treks in Nepal.

This high-altitude trek starts from the ancient city of Lo Manthang, the capital of the Upper Mustang region. The city is a labyrinth of narrow alleys, steep winding trails, and whitewashed adobe houses, surrounded by a barren desert-like landscape. The trek offers a window into a hidden, culturally rich world that has been preserved for centuries due to its isolation.

The trek follows the Kali Gandaki river gorge, known as the deepest gorge in the world, and passes through several traditional villages, ancient monasteries, and awe-inspiring scenic landscapes. The trail passes through colorful Buddhist monasteries, caves, villages, and the famous Lo Manthang palace, which is home to local royalty. The Mustang region is a treasure trove of centuries-old Gompas (monasteries), statues, murals, and thankas (Buddhist paintings on cotton or silk). The most notable monastery is the 100-year-old Thugchen Gompa.

The Upper Mustang region is known for its unique, arid Himalayan desert-like terrain, which is a stark contrast to the lush green forests of the lower Mustang region. The region is home to towering peaks like Dhaulagiri, Annapurna, and Nilgiri, and several other 6,000-meter peaks, giving trekkers plenty of opportunities to enjoy stunning panoramas of the Himalayan vistas.

The local lifestyle and culture of the Upper Mustang region are deeply rooted in Tibetan Buddhism, which is evident in their architecture, art, language, and religious practices. The people of this region have a distinct dialect, known as Thakali, which is a mixture of Tibetan and Nepalese language.

The Upper Mustang Trekking has become increasingly popular in recent years due to its unique cultural, natural, and geological features. The best time to go for the trek is between March to November, as the region is inaccessible during winter due to heavy snowfall.

In conclusion, Upper Mustang trekking is a surreal experience that transports trekkers to a different world altogether. The blend of unique cultural exposure, beautiful scenery, and challenging terrain makes it one of the most rewarding treks in Nepal. Trekking here is a must-do for nature lovers, adventure enthusiasts, and anyone who wants to experience the ultimate Himalayan experience.
