The Upper Mustang trek leads you to the hidden and semi-independent kingdom of Nepal attached to the Tibetan Border. This region is also known as Lo.
Hundreds of years back, Lo belonged to Tibetan rulers, hence Upper Mustang still widely practices Tibetan Buddhism. The area is also known as the Himalayan cold desert. Thousands year old Buddhist monasteries, colorful rock formations, and hundreds of caves are some of the highlights on this trek.
The Upper Mustang trek was not permitted by the Government of Nepal until 1992, though the area is restricted even today for individual trekkers or backpackers. June, July and August are the best months to visit the area.
Until recently, the Upper Mustang Trek was accessible only in camping mode but nowadays basic tea houses have made it easier for trekkers to get their meals and accommodation.
Upper Mustang area is also known as "The last Forbidden Kingdom" and Mustang Trekking is an adventure of a lifetime for anyone from anywhere in the world.
