Trip Overview

Upper Mustang trek is located is an ancient Himalayan Kingdom which lies in the northern central part of Nepal and at the top of the Kaligandaki River. When you enter the restricted area, you enter an ancient land with its own distinct history and tradition. Part of Nepal for two hundred years, Upper Mustang remains one of the few areas in Tibet original sphere of influence where Tibetan culture continues to survive. The challenge we face today is to improve our living conditions, and at the same time to strengthen and keep alive our unique culture.

Mustang was a forbidden land for centuries and little was known of this Trans Himalayan valley which has wonderful variety of its heritage, lively Tibetan culture and fascinating landscape. Early visitors explored the silent features of this unique hidden land, its great castle, ancient monasteries, lonely hermitage and remote villages.

The Mustang region is dry, desolate and windy, and is a paradise like no other on earth. Strong winds blowing up between the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountains have created a dry desert landscape- dusty and bare in all its beauty. Because of dry climate found over here agriculture is impossible without irrigation and agro-productive land is also very nominal. Polyandry, marriage of one woman with two or more brothers, is still in practice to avoid the splitting of the family's farmland. But like all traditional ways, these are changing too.
