Nepal Upper Mustang Trekking
About this place
Upper Mustang Trek is a journey to the cabalistic territory of Mustang which abodes the ancient Buddhist kingdom of Mustang- Lo. Mustang is a fortified city perched atop Kaligandaki River in the rain shadow of the Himalayas. Mustang receives minimal rainfall which makes the entire land arid with less vegetation. But it also means that Upper Mustang Trek is feasible for trekkers like us throughout the year including monsoon season.
The trail for Upper Mustang Trekking moves forth the barren moonscape of eroded sandstone columns and sporadic moraine landscapes. Upper Mustang Trekking has so much to offer to the prospective trekkers. Thousand years old monastery, the fortified wall, the four storey palace in Lomanthang, caves, native tribes and kaleidoscopic views of Nilgiri, Annapurna and Dhawalagiri Mountains and getting surrounded by more than 35 mountains over 6000m high are the sneak peaks of Upper Mustang Trek.
The course passes through as varied topographical structures as the world’s deepest gorge in Kali Gandaki to world’s highest regions of Lo- Manthang Valley. Upper Mustang Trek is a Restricted Area Trekking which requires a special permit from department of immigration to travel through. Permits restrict the visitor to a visit on 10-13 groups (2-14 people maximum). The valley experiences roaring wind during daytime which gets calmer throughout the night.
All in all, Upper Mustang Trek will take you through out of the world experience which will remain imprinted in your memories throughout your life.
