Upper Mustang Trekking: Best Seasons, Guide, Cost and Itinerary

The Upper Mustang Trekking is a mesmerizing trip to the hidden kingdom of Lo, surrounded by the Tibetan influenced ethnic groups. The landscape is deserted and barren. It is located in the trans-Himalayan rain shadow area of the Mustang region. Upper Mustang has got ancient Buddhist Monasteries, sandy caves and miscellaneous wild flowers. The traditional way of local ethnic tribes is attractive to discover.



A picturesque flight to Jomsom takes you to the trekking area of the Upper Mustang. The views of the Annapurna Conservation Area, its natural opulence, Dhaulagiri and Annapurna white peaks, add more lure in the entire trip. During the trek to Lo-Manthang, you cross antique villages with Chhortens and fluttering Buddhist prayer flags, and some of the tiresome hill passes. The mystical affluence of the Lo-Manthang remains the most gorgeous place for the trekkers to explore around. It is a stone walled city of this region, including the ancient cultural civilizations, which is a semi-independent region of Nepal. The sense of solidarity and cooperation have made their lifestyle incandescent. Though it is a rain shadow area, various colourful vegetation, barley, buckwheat crops and herbs are abundantly found here. Retracing the trek, it concludes in Jomsom and fly further.
