The region of Upper Mustang was officially opened for foreigners in 1992. Since then, this mystical, forbidden kingdom hidden amid the mighty Himalayas sees a limited number of intrepid travelers every year. Join us on this exciting adventure and discover the secrets of Lo, the fabled, forbidden kingdom inhabited by followers of Tibetan Buddhism and located in a vast, arid valley and surrounded by mountains and canyons.

Your journey starts with a drive from Kathmandu to Pokhara, the city of lakes and gateway to those venturing into the Annapurna region. A short flight from Pokhara takes you to Jomsom, the starting point of your trek. From Jomsom you will follow the Kali Gandaki River all the way to Kagbeni.

Continue your journey uphill via Chele, Syangmoche and Ghaymi to reach Lo Manthang. Spend a day exploring the Kingdom of Lo and see its highlights, including Nyphu cave monastery and the 2,500 years old sky cave Jhong. Another highlight of this region is Ghar Gompa, which you will see during the trip. Located not away from Lo, this monastery is over 1,200 years old and is dedicated to Guru Rinpoche, popularly known as Padmasambhava.

Your journey downhill will mostly take you along the same route that you used earlier. This tour comes to an end after you have arrived in Kathmandu. Please scroll down to the itinerary section for more details.

“Spent 14 days on the Everest Base Camp trek. It was a great trek, full of breathtaking views and challenging days, but we'll worth the money paid. If you have this on your bucket list like I did you will not be disappointed. Crew of Pasang and Suresh were fantastic and kept things loose. Very accommodating guides. Made our trip special.”
