Upper Mustang (Lo Manthang) Trek

Upper mustang Trekking is a remote Trans Himalayan mountain region. This region is influenced by Tibetan culture. From Kaligandaki to south of Tibetan border Kagbeni is usually referred as an upper mustang region. This region is highly deserted. This place is famous for thousands of year’s monasteries, caves, local tribes and scenic beauty. Due to thousands of years of isolation the culture, lifestyle, and heritage are same as they were before.  This zone is also famously known as the last forbidden kingdom since it was restricted for the outsiders. The Nepal government opened it since October 1991. Though it is opened there is firm control to get the permit from the department of immigration.

Upper mustang  is done to protect their culture and tradition from the outsiders as well as to protect the environment. High peaks, glaciers, passes alpine valleys can be viewed during trekking.
