Description

Upper Mustang Trek is an exploration of the hidden valleys of Upper Mustang in Nepal which was officially opened in 1992. This trek is an ideal trek for those trekking lovers who want to escape the everyday stress and bustle of city life. You’ll find Tibetan Buddhism is still being practiced in a very pure form in Mustang and villages are also built in Tibetan style. This trek is the best way to explore the sight of unique Tibetan culture and the deserted landscapes. On our way to Upper Mustang, trails are decorated with Mani walls, colorful prayer flags, and mudbrick houses that makes you forget all stress and inspire you to explore more about Tibetan Culture and lifestyle. This trek combines everything you expect from one trek from astonishing Himalayan Ranges, rich culture, waterfalls, deserted lands, rocky trail, and adventure feeling. 
Our 17-day adventure to Upper Mustang trip begins in Kathmandu with tours of UNESCO cultural World Heritage Sites.  Next day, we drive to Pokhara and fly to Jomsom and finally start walking admiring the uniqueness of rocky trails, tree-less landscape and sublime views of mountain Nilgiri, Dhaulagiri, Annapurna, and the other Himalayas. This trek is full of natural wonders where you will be blessed by the high Annapurna Mountains, rolling green hills, ancient monasteries, and serene lakes.
