Upper Mustang literally means “fertile land” in the Tibetan language. Mustang trek is one of the great and wonderful treks in Nepal. Trek in mustang is a good option during the month of monsoon. Once the capital city of the ancient kingdom of Lo-Manthang, Upper Mustang trekking is definitely one of the most enigmatic and unforgettable treks you will embark on. What makes Upper Mustang Trek fascinating is, up until 1992 AD Upper Mustang was a restricted demilitarized area which makes it the most conserved region in the world.
The Upper Mustang comprises approximately the northern two-thirds of the Mustang District of Dhaulagiri Zone. Only in 1992, trekking in the region was officially started. It allowed only a few no. of trekkers keeping in consideration the delicate environment and the ancient enclosed culture of the people. A trek in this legendary Kingdom of copper-red parched valleys, eroded canyon and deepest gorges decorated with yak caravans, colorful prayer flags and mudbrick houses in the backdrop of magnificent Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, Tukche, and Nilgiri is your ultimate journey to Shangri-La. Experience the exotic culture of the mountain people like Thakalis, Tibetan and Gurung and be part of their strong culture that has survived for centuries in the driest place of the country. The Upper Mustang Trek is fairly easy in relation to the gratifying experience it provides. We will trek along the permitted route of the Lo-Manthang to reach the maximum altitude of 3,840m. Join Nepal Eco Adventure’s Upper Mustang Trek, a 17-day journey to the land beyond the mountains, to the kingdom within a republic where till today the king is worshiped as divine. This barren landscape is dotted with settlements of white washed houses, barley fields and chortens festooned with prayer flags which add a splash of color to the landscape. Lo Manthang, the old capital, is reached in four days and at least one extra day should be spent here to catch the sights and sound of this unique walled settlement. Ponies are available for hire if you so desire. The return trip can either follow the same route while entering or, as an alternative route, the eastern bank of the Kali Gandaki may be followed.
