Upper Mustang is known as a mystique valley and the last forbidden Himalayan kingdom of Nepal and is also known as a ‘Mini Tibet of Nepal’ and a very well-liked trekking in Nepal, has been described as “Mountain Desert" The trekking tour to Lo Manthang- isolated region is a incredibly satisfying one for those who want to experience the hospitality and warmth of the locals living in this remote region. Nepal Department of Immigration started to issue only a small number of special trekking permits since 1991. Before 1991 the region was prohibited to visit for foreign travelers. Upper Mustang is a perfect destination where generous scope is offered for visiting Buddhists Monasteries. This semi autonomous and heavily Tibetan influenced region was described by Tillman as fascinatingly ugly country, the more fascinating for being so little known" indeed, the trek to Lo Manthang is through an almost treeless barren landscape, a steep rocky trail up and down hill, unbelievable panorama of Nilgiri, Annapurna, Dhaulagiri and several others peaks make your trek marvelous with lifetime experience. Trek begins from Jomsom - reachable by flight and accessible by walk from Ghorepani-Poon Hill-Tatopani-Jomsom and Kali Gandaki Valley trekking route.

Mustang is one of those few places in the world that has survived a very close-niche life and that region was, until recently, was a forbidden land for outsides. This isolation helped the people of Mustang to preserve their life style and heritage that remained almost untouched for centuries. Hidden behind the majestic Himalayan ranges, Mustang is filled with beautiful trekking zones. The high desert rain shadow of Himalayas receives very little rainfall making this region dry and parched, similar to the bordering Tibetan Plateau. The Lo Manthang, capital of Upper Mustang, lies in the remote Himalaya desert behind the Dhaulagiri and Annapurna mountain ranges, is an antique Tibetan Village, with rare medieval Buddhist arts and exotic culture. We, Wilderness Excursion Pvt. Ltd offers perfect budget package trips to Mustang in most competitive trip cost and develop tailor made itinerary to meet your time frame for Nepal holiday.
