Upper Mustang camping trek
The Hidden Kingdom of Mustang
A journey into a fascinating Buddhist Kingdom to the ancient
with a spectacular flight along the Kali Gandaki we pass between
the great mountain massifs of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri to
reach Jomsom. From here our trek begins, following the Kali
Gandaki River into the restricted area of Mustang. Geographically
and culturally more a part of Tibet than Nepal, Mustang contains
a wild landscape of eroded cliffs and hidden caves. We trek
through remote villages, little changed by twentieth century
influences, and have time to appreciate the culture of the
hardy Lobas people. After five days we reach the spectacular
walled city of Lo Manthang , the capital of Mustang, and the
incredible four storey palace. We have time to explore the
city and visit outlying villages to the north of the capital.
return is via the rarely visited eastern side of Mustang and
the ancient gompa at Luri. Hidden canyons and stairways lead
to the gompa which contains unique wall paintings.
Scenically unlike any other area in Nepal,
a trek into the hidden Kingdom of Mustang is a uniquely rewarding
