Upper Mustang Trekking is one of the spectacular trekking into the Hidden Kingdom of Mustang. Trekking into Upper Mustang is a rare and privileged opportunity to experience the true life of the “highlanders” or the mountain people. Trekking in Mustang gives you a similar feeling of trekking in Tibet. Upper Mustang, having a topography and culture resembling Tibet is definatelysurprising and an exciting trekking region to trek on. The whole area has an isolated and mystical feel to it, enchanting and inspiring visitors to this region. The major attraction of Upper Mustang is the walled city of Lo-Manthang. Upper Mustang is consider as one of the most interesting and picturesque places in Nepal.

Upper Mustang Trekking starts from Jomsom to Kagbeni, the entry point of upper Mustang Region. We follow the banks of Kaligandaki River upstream to get to Lo-Mangthang, the capital of the upper Mustang. The Upper Mustang trek passes through high peaks, passes, glaciers, and alpine valleys. The thousands years of isolation has kept the culture, lifestyle and heritage remain unchanged for centuries and to this date. The houses in Mustang are mostly made from stone and sun baked mud bricks. The city wall and the four storey palace in Lo-Manthang are some of the beautiful architectures of Mustang region. Another attraction in the Mustang region is the Tiji Festival influenced by Tibetan Buddhism, which is timed to coincide with the end of the dry season (late winter/spring). The Mustangi people have their own way of family life, which is quite surprising for many outsiders. All the brothers in the family are married to a single girl, what you may call a practice of polyandry. The Trans-Himalayan Mustang Region is also known as the Last Forbidden Kingdom, since the region was restricted for outsiders until Nepal Government announced the opening of the restricted areas in October 1991. The Mustangis or the people of Mustang call themselves Lobas, and they have their own King or Tribe-leader, Jigme Palbar Bista.

Trekking in Upper Mustang region is under strict control and conditions stills persists in obtaining a special permit from the department of immigration to protect their tradition from outside influence as well as to protect their environment. Mountain Tiger Nepal takes you to one of the Trans-Himalayan regions with best designed itineraries allowing you to get a closer deeper insight into one of the oldest Buddhist Monasteries, ancient and isolated villages, while trekking in this region.
