“Traveling: It leaves you speechless. Then turns you into a storyteller”
Mustang region of northern-central Nepal, lies in the rain shadow of the Dhaulagiri massif. It is unlike any other place in the country, it is characterized by its barren, windswept humps of mountain desert earth, all shades of pink, purple, brown, and gray but still a very magnificent place to trek through.
Geologically and culturally being a part of the Tibetan plateau, the Upper Mustang trek allows you to visit the whole region in just one trek. Trekkers will follow the lovely river called Kali Gandaki and walk beside its river bed for couple of days. We traverse through villages like Kagbeni, Lo Manthang and just so you know, Lo Manthang is a very important place for travelers and locals. It used to be the capital of Mustang kingdom in previous times. Upon reaching Lo-Manthang, we shall have at least one extra day for doing some sightseeing around this unique walled settlement. As our final point we then descend to Muktinath (3,750 m), a highly venerated sacred place for both Hindus and Buddhists. The greatest attribute of this place is that it represents the presence of all the five elements air, sky, earth, fire and water in their distinctive form. It is quite astonishing to see trees growing at such an unusual and high altitude. Afterward we then move on to Jomsom from where we take a flight to Pokhara.
Except from late December to beginning of March, rest other months, including October and November are considered as the perfect months for doing the Upper Mustang Trek.
