    Popular Monasteries of Upper Mustang
    Sagun ThapaMar 20th 2024

    Upper Mustang as everyone knows, is a blessed land by Lamas and Buddhist priests. It is a land, where Guru Rinpoche came and meditated. Lomanthang is its capital town and has an abundant number of monasteries, chhortens, and hidden caves.

    We have designed a 7-day Upper Mustang Tour Itinerary that suits the tour and exploration. However, there is a monastery, called Chodzong Monastery, which requires one extra day to reach there and come back to Lomanthang by using horse. Here are major highlighting monasteries in Upper Mustang.
