Upper Mustang Trek

The Upper Mustang trek provides travelers with the opportunity to venture into the remote, semi-independent Kingdom of Upper Mustang, located north of Annapurna on the Tibetan boarder on an altitude of roughly 4000 meters. This region is geologically and culturally a part of the Tibetan plateau. Its valleys are arid and dry with colorful rock formations and cliffs. Behind them stand the Himalayan peaks, awe-strikingly beautiful and snow-topped. A part of Mustang’s beauty lies in the fact that this region is visited only by limited number of tourists, which leaves it one of the few places on the planet where one can see undisturbed Tibetan culture. Moreover, Mustang is well known among the people not only as a place with unique landscapes that will take your breath away, but also for its good cuisine and the production of a tasty apple liqueur. For the brave trekkers and the ones keen on experimenting, the tasting of the local butter tea is an unforgettable experience and a chance to near oneself to the lifestyle of the local population. Make your way up the Kali Gandaki river’s banks, witnessing the beauty of its unreal blue waters and desert surroundings to the ancient kingdom of Mustang – a place where culture meets nature and forms an eternal bond.
