Upper Mustang Trekking
|No of People:||N/A||Max-Elevation:||N/A|
The last forbidden kingdom of Nepal, Mustang is located beyond the great Himalayas and is host to a large museum of Tibetan Buddhist culture. Those who visit this region are rewarded by the opportunity to witness and learn about traditional customs, a unique lifestyle and breathtaking views of Silvery Mountain and canyon-like valleys. The popularity of Mustang Trekking is strictly controlled by the Department of Immigration, through which you must obtain a trekking permit, in order to protect Mustang from the overwhelming influence of development, and to protect the environment from overuse and neglect.
The Capital, Lo Manthan is an old walled town still undisturbed and untouched by western civilization, and daily life is much as it has been over the centuries. Around Lo Manthan one can explore the nearby Namgyal Gompa, the village of Tenger and the Nyamook Gompa. Strange are the cave dwellings that are the villages of Guruk and Sija, cut into the surrounding cliff sides, inhabited even today.
There are many possible trekking routes in Mustang. Try the Tibetan influenced region between the Kali Gandaki and Kagbeni rivers, known as ‘mustang’. Further North, you can trek to Lo Manthang through a barren, almost tree-less landscape, on a steep and rocky trail for panoramic views of Nilgiri, Annapurna, Dhaulagiri and several other peaks.
Mustang Annapurna Trekking:
It is meaningful if you combine your Mustang Trekking in Nepal with Annapurna trekking. Instead of flying to Jomsom direct, it is better to trek up to Jomsom from Pokhara via Ghorepani where you also enjoy the view from Poon Hill sun rise over Himalaya.
