Upper Mustang Trek

Upper Mustang Trek

The trek into Upper Mustang is still a privileged entrance into the way of life of the true mountain people. Mustang is situated north of the Annapurna Himal on the borders of Tibet, which geographically it is part of. It was a separate Kingdom within the boundaries of Nepal as late as 1950, the "Raja" of Mustang still maintains his residence in Lo-Mantang (the region's Capital). Mustang's wealth was derived from being a major trading hub on the Kali Gandaki / Thak Khola trade route to Tibet.Mustang remains a restricted region and special permits are needed to visit, it was only in 1992 it was opened to foreigners, our destination is the exotic walled capital city of Lo Manthang . Built in 1380 A. D. by the first King of Lo, the city stands as a testimony to Lo-Manthang prosperity of rich cultural heritage. The city wall some 700 m. long and 8 m. high, has a series of 14 towers along its periphery these were guard towers in the past protecting the town from its enemies. The Kings Palace is surrounded by a maize of gompas and private houses all enshrined within the city boundary walls.

Lo-Manthang's life is deep rooted in the religious sentiments and ulture of its people where polyandry is still practiced. The township abounds with many chortens, maniwalls and onasteries. Prayer flags flutter above all the houses in, what is, an almost surreal setting. A mystical region frozen in history, Mustang remains one of the ultimate journeys. Trek Schedule.
