Upper Mustang Trek was opened in 1992 for primary trekking to limited number of trekkers in order to protect its fragile environment and ancient Tibetan culture, different to others. Mustang trek unveils the incredible beauty of forbidden kingdom, its barren and arid valleys, eroded canyon and colorful settlements festooned with stone and brick houses on the back-drop of majestic Himalaya range of Nilgiri, Tukche, Annapurna and Dhaulagiri. 

Located north-west of the Annapurna region extending to the Tibetan plateau, Upper Mustang is a large and remote mountain-fringed basin home to the headwater of the Kali Gandaki. Upper Mustang Trek is well-known as great monsoon trek in Nepal as the entire region lies in rain-shadow area, sheltered by Annapurna and Dhaulagiri massifs. Trekking to Upper Mustang offers the great alpine scenario similar to Tibetan Plateau, with tree-less landscapes, rocky trails and majestic views of Annapurna, Dhaulagiri and other Himalaya rage.

This semi-autonomous and Tibetan influenced region was described as fascinatingly ugly country by Tillman, for being little explored; indeed – trekking to Upper Mustang (Lo Manthang) is through dry and parched landscapes, steep trail with deep insight of culture and mountain views. Lo-Manthang, the heart of Mustang is a walled city once ruled by religious king. At Lo-Manthang, you will be surrounded by more than 35 mountains over 6,000m. The trail elevation rises from 2,815m to 3,780m above sea level.
