Upper Mustang trek

Upper Mustang is also known as the Last forbidden Kingdom because it wasn’t until the 1990s that tourists were allowed to enter the region . While trekking in the Upper Mustang region of Nepal, We can admire the uniqueness of tree-less landscape, rocky trails and views of Nilgiri, Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, and Other Himalayas. What makes Upper Mustang special is not only its people and its well-preserved landscape but also its natural beauty which makes way to vast fields with barren hillsides and sights of snowy peaks such as Annapurna, Nilgiri, and Tilicho. Lo-Manthang is the capital of the ancient Kingdom of Lo. Also known as ‘The Walled City’, this place is home to Tibetan Buddhists who seem to be living in an untouched civilization with their traditions and culture still serving as an integral part of their daily life.
