About Upper Mustang Trek
Upper Mustang Trekking leads you to the culturally significant hidden Kingdom that remained mysterious for the long time. The trek was permitted only after 1992. The trek lies in the restricted area of the Mustang region, which requires a special trekking permit. The trail lies in the Himalayan rain shadow area, which is almost arid, but the seasonable flowers and vegetation makes the trek spectacular.
Upper Mustang trek begins from Jomsom after a picturesque flight from Pokhara. But the trek through the restricted region begins from Kagbeni, which is a gateway of the Upper Mustang, which is populated by the Thakali people. The trail of Upper Mustang was used by the traders. The features of the isolated and imposing landscape are equally assisted by the cultural beauties as monasteries, chhortens, mani walls and the whitewashed houses throughout the trail. The frequent up and down trail, the red sandy cliffs, view of Dhaulagiri and Nilgiri Mountain ranges are very heartwarming. The windswept valleys and narrow gorges make the trek pretty challenging, but a moderately fit person can do this trek. Crossing over some of the passes, you reach to the stone walled town of Lo-Manthang, which is a remarkable and ultimate destination. This is a blessed destination for the cultural exploration throughout the surroundings. Tiji festival is the identity of this place that has got an international recognition.
