Upper Mustang Trekking

General Overview

Upper Mustang Trekking

Greetings from Eagle Treks to those interested in doing the Upper Mustang Trekking. This is the forbidden kingdom trek in the Nepal Himalaya. Lo-manthang is the capital of this region. The Upper Mustang trekking was closed for foreigners until 1991 because the Government of Nepal didn't want this region to be influenced by western culture. After 1991 this trek has been made open for foreigners. A special permit from department of immigration of Nepal is required to trek in this region.
Upper Mustang was a separate kingdom within Nepal until the time of Monarchy till 2006 and even after the downfall of Monarchy this small Tibetan settlement has the same respect for their King Jigme Paramal Bista. The trek to Lo-Manthang is through high altitude desert country climbing in and out of the huge sided valley of the Kali Gandaki. In places the gorge which the Kali Gandaki River runs through is the deepest in the world. This region is full of some of Nepal's oldest Buddhist Monasteries, ancient and isolated villages with quaint white washed houses.
Nesting on the Tibetan boarder, this region is dominated by giants Annapurna, Niligiri and Dhaulagiri massif. Situated at the head of the Kali Gandaki in north central Nepal, the little-known district of Mustang is naturally and culturally attractive, in particular, the origin of Tibet. Tourists in Upper Mustang can opt for the strongly wrinkled landscape of this remote territory that presents a vibrant mosaic of earth colors - red, yellows, browns and blues. This location is bestowed with ecological diversities, delightful views of snowy peaks, colorful villages, monasteries, Mani walls, ancient palaces, Tibetan culture and heritage and many more.

Season

Round the year

(Note:  Should you not be able to finish the trek in a timely manner, there is the option of taking a bus back from Lo-manthang or Tsarang to Kagbeni as an added expense.  This four hour bus ride would eliminate approximately four days of return trekking.  Also, this bus ride is really something to experience, with about  800-1000 meters elevation drop on a narrow dirt road to the bottom of a spectacular gorge of Kali Gandaki river with outstanding views along every turn along the way. Jeep services are also available along the trekking trail.)
