Mustang Trek


The Kingdom of Mustang had been a forbidden land until just recently. Even now the Upper Mustang is only opened for a limited number of trekkers. Lo Manthang (Mustang) is located north of the main Himalayan chain between the snow-capped mountains on the east and west bordering Tibet. It forms a relatively wide and leveled ridge towards the north with passes not lower than 4600m. The climate and land is dry and arid making it an amazing high altitude desert. Villages are located in the valley between the altitudes of 3300m and 4000m. This is the route where you are likely to come across some very important historical sites. No wonder an 800 year old cave and religious cravings have recently been discovered en route. Mustang is famous for being an important salt trading post in the Trans Himalayan belt, thus it has seen its fair share of yak caravans and traders in its time. From Kagbeni we return to Jomsom to fly back to Pokhara.
