Upper Mustang Trek

Upper Mustang, also known as the "Last Forbidden Kingdom," is nestled in the rain shadow of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges, bordering Tibet to the north. This isolated region is renowned for its unique landscape, characterized by barren desert-like terrain, deep gorges, and medieval villages adorned with ancient monasteries and fortresses.

The journey begins in the vibrant city of Kathmandu, where you'll immerse yourself in the rich cultural heritage of Nepal before flying to the picturesque town of Pokhara. From there, a scenic flight takes you to Jomsom, the gateway to Upper Mustang, where the trekking adventure begins.

As you traverse the windswept landscapes of Upper Mustang, you'll be captivated by the stark beauty of the terrain, dotted with colorful prayer flags fluttering in the wind and chortens (Buddhist shrines) adorned with intricate carvings. Along the way, you'll encounter remote villages inhabited by the descendants of Tibetan refugees, who have preserved their ancient traditions and way of life for centuries.

The highlight of the trek is reaching Lo Manthang, the capital of Upper Mustang, a fortified city surrounded by towering walls and adorned with ornate monasteries and palaces. Explore the narrow streets lined with whitewashed houses, visit the ancient monasteries of Thubchen and Jampa, and witness traditional rituals and festivals that have been celebrated for generations.

From Lo Manthang, the trail leads to the mystical caves of Chhoser, where ancient Buddhist hermitages are carved into the cliffsides, offering a glimpse into the spiritual practices of the region.

After exploring the hidden treasures of Upper Mustang, the journey concludes with a flight back to Pokhara, where you'll have time to reflect on the unforgettable experiences you've had amidst the ancient kingdom of Mustang.

The Upper Mustang Trek promises an extraordinary adventure filled with cultural immersion, stunning landscapes, and encounters with the timeless traditions of the Himalayas. Join us as we journey to the "Last Forbidden Kingdom" and unlock the secrets of this enchanting land.
