Upper Mustang Region Trips & Itineraries

“Tibetan” enclave in Nepalese territory, a veritable peninsula plunging into the Land of Snows, the Mustang has long been inaccessible to foreigners. This ancient kingdom was visited only by rare Tibetologists and explorers. One of the wildest dreams of lovers of the Himalayas is today accessible to a limited number of foreign travelers. 80 km behind Annapurna, the Tibetan plateau falls dramatically: red cliffs, troglodyte cities, fairy chimneys, canyons and ravines eroded in a thousand shapes, stuffed snow leopards and demon traps. Lo Manthang, the capital, surrounded by ramparts that stand proudly in the middle of the high altitude desert, is the culmination of an exceptional journey where no two stages are ever the same
