General Information

Upper Mustang Trekking is one of the spectacular trekking into the Hidden Kingdom of Mustang. Trekking into Upper Mustang is a rare and privileged opportunity to experience the true life of the “highlanders” or the mountain people. Trekking in Mustang gives you a similar feeling of trekking in Tibet. Upper Mustang, having a topography and culture resembling Tibet is definitely surprising and an exciting trekking region to trek on. The whole area has an isolated and mystical feel to it, enchanting and inspiring visitors to this region. The major attraction of Upper Mustang is the walled city of Lo-Manthang. Upper Mustang is considered as one of the most interesting and picturesque places in Nepal.

Upper Mustang Trekking starts from Jomsom to Kagbeni, the entry point of upper Mustang Region. We follow the banks of Kaligandaki River upstream to get to Lo-Mangthang, the capital of the upper Mustang. The Upper Mustang trek passes through high peaks, passes, glaciers, and alpine valleys. The thousands of years of isolation has kept the culture, lifestyle and heritage remain unchanged for centuries and to this date. The houses in Mustang are mostly made from stone and sun-baked mud bricks. The city wall and the four storey palace in Lo-Manthang are some of the beautiful architectures of the Mustang region. Another attraction in the Mustang region is the Tiji Festival influenced by Tibetan Buddhism, which is timed to coincide with the end of the dry season (late winter/spring). The Mustangi people have their own way of family life, which is quite surprising for many outsiders. All the brothers in the family are married to a single girl, what you may call a practice of polyandry. The Trans-Himalayan Mustang Region is also known as the Last Forbidden Kingdom, since the region was restricted for outsiders until Nepal Government announced the opening of the restricted areas in October 1991.
