Upper Mustang Trek Quick Booking

Upper Mustang Trek takes us to remote Far Western Region which is close to Himalayas. Mustang was once a forbidden kingdom and remained hidden from the outside world. Mustang Trekking was opened only in 1992. Lo Manthang, the fortified city is the prized possession of Mustang. Historically a part of Tibetan Kingdom, Mustang is the land of dry valleys, canyons, yak caravans and mud brick houses. Tiji festival is observed with great enthusiasm in the Himalayan Kingdom of Mustang during which the monks perform ritual dance to ward off the evil spirits from the kingdom. Located in the rain shadow of Himalayas, Mustang receives little rainfall each year.  
Nepal Himalayas Trekking organizes Upper Mustang trekking itinerary as 17-days package. Mustang trek allows views of Nilgiri, Annapurna, Dhaulagiri and other peaks and mountains. The mystique valley of Upper Mustang is also known as the last forbidden Himalayan kingdom. Trekking to Lo Manthang is the best when it comes to experiencing the warm hospitality of locals. The region is heavily influenced by Tibetan culture and the panoramic views of Nilgiri, Annapurna, Dhaulagiri and other peaks and mountains make Mustang trekking a lifetime worth of experience.
We will leave Kathmandu and drive to Pokhara from where we will catch a connecting flight to Jomsom. Walking through Kaligandaki Valley, we will reach the fortified city of Lomanthang which is the capital of Upper Mustang. We provide memorable Upper Mustang trekking in competitive cost. Let our professional staffs arrange for the memorable Mustang trekking experience.
