About This Package
The Mustang Trek is an exploration of the hidden valleys of Upper Mustang in Nepal. It is interesting to note that it is located between Tibet and the Himalayas, a place different from the rest of the world. The walled city of Lomanthang was part of the Tibetan kingdom of Gungthang until the 1830s. The first story of Lomanthang is adorned with myths and legends rather than recorded events. Even though the upper part of the Mustang is changing, it still surprises visitors with its breathtaking view and the stubborn way in which it clings to its unique culture. There are about 275 houses in Lo Mangthang with four castes. The royal caste, ordinary people, blacksmiths, butchers and millers. The whole town of Lo Manthang has solar electricity today. Small decorative style grass garden with several holy decorations, Mani stones and, of course, stacked wood.
The trek of the Upper Mustangs in Nepal was officially opened in 1992. The Mustang Road deploys the vast and arid valleys of the legendary forbidden kingdom, eroded canyons and yak caravans. In addition, mud brick houses painted in colours adjacent to the majestic Nilgiri, Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountains. Surprisingly, this trekking in Upper Mustang is one of the best to do even during the monsoon season in Nepal. Therefore, it lies in the shadow of the rain, north of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri Mountain, completely sheltered from the monsoon. The best thing about this cultural trek during the monsoon season is that the city is filled with local people busy with their daily tasks. Moreover, the whole region is in bloom, which really contrasts with the wind-eroded hills, the red cliffs and the snowy mountains in the background- a magnificent view. Therefore, the trip up the Mustang is once in a destination of life to explore the fascinating medieval fortified kingdom of Lo Manthang.
