Trip Introduction

Mustang; the one and only hidden kingdom of Nepal covering an area of 2020 km(780sq mi). The estimated population of this whole region is only 15000.

This region lies from (2800-3900m) above the sea level. Mustang divides into two parts; Upper Mustang (Upper Mustang Trek)and Lower Mustang. 

Due to tough weather condition, winter migration takes place to a large number of population to come down to Lower Mustang from Upper Mustang.

Similarly, Jomsom is the main town of this region and has only one airport which runs only till 11 am due to strong wind there. In this Upper Mustang Trek Jomsom airport is the most popular entrance.

Mustang is also a town behind the mountains is a dry region; as the gigantic Mountains block the cloud from all sides. Rainfall hardly occurs in this region. It is also restricted demilitarized area till 1992 which has become the main reason for the preservation of there rich culture, language, and traditions.

The people here are mostly Thakali which are the main origin here and this region is mostly influence by Buddhism. Mustang as a kingdom ended in 2008 when Nepal became a republic country.

The last destination of our Upper Mustang Trek is Lo-Manthang. It is a small village in the middle of a dry desert near Tibet in the northernmost part of Nepal. Only around 1000 people live here with almost 180 houses.

In recent few years, more than twelve caves were also discovered to the north of Annapurna. Paintings from the 13th century are also here and the Royal Palace of King Jigme Dorje Paldor Bista (who passed away in 2016) is still here. The oldest Gumba built before 700 yrs is still here in this region.
