Upper Mustang Trek, nestled in the rainy follower of the Himalayas, is maybe the last reserve of authentic Tibetan culture. They are prohibited and unreachable from the rest of the world. It was able to evolve its culture and heritage so rich and unique. Lo-Mustang, the capital, is a walled city controlled by a religious ruler. Untouched by the present society, life in Mustang carries on as it has for millennia at a slow pace. As elsewhere in the Himalayas, this location gives stunning mountain scenery embellished by Dhaulagiri at 8164 meters (26, 795 ft) and Annapurna I at 8091 meters (26,545 ft.); you will be limited by more than 35 mountains above 6000 meters (19,680 ft) high. The progression of the routes climbs from 2815 meters (9,233 ft.) to 3780 meters (12398 ft) overhead sea level. Along the trip, you can witness hundreds of historical monasteries, shortened caves, old villages, and a good view of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri range comprises several peaks.

Upper Mustang Trek Complete Guide…

Inhabit by Tibetan people who emigrated from Tibet almost a thousand years ago. This location doesn’t support growing more foods due to warmth and less rain, even in the monsoon season. Each year, they can only produce one item of food like barley, comprehensive, and potato, the critical farming here; other essential goods they supply from a lower part of Nepal. Winters are freezing weather here because of heavy snowing; most people go down to Pokhara or Kathmandu. Only a few people live in villages to look after houses and animals. But in spring, everyone returns to town for trade and farming, and the monsoon is the perfect temperature for life in this region.

Mustang is a significant salt trading hub in the Trans Himalayan region; hence, yak caravans and traders are a typical sight here. This expedition is unlike any other and will likely provide you with a lifetime experience and many beautiful views and vistas.
