A trek to the upper regions of Mustang is a journey into a land that time seemed to have forgotten. Each morning the loud bell at one of the monasteries gong for a wake-up call. Villagers take it as a sign of beginning their daily chores, mostly religious ones, before engaging in other duties such as cooking or foraging. The region is graced by crystal-clear views of Nilgiri and Dhaulagiri peaks. Here, life is at close adherence to nature – with very little involvement of modernity or mechanization.

This is a less-crowded trekking route preferred for pristine environment, immersive experience, and appreciation of natural diversity. This trekking is a rare chance to get involved and see the remote but diverse landscapes of Nepal. A culture and lifestyle that has sustained for hundreds of years at this location, is a sight to behold. The incredible windswept barren landscapes in villages that you see here, is indeed a testament to the amazing diversity of nature.

Sharing borders with Tibet, the culture might seem somewhat similar. The religion they follow is Buddhism, that dictates they lifestyle and traditions. The brown cliffs and barren landscapes of the entire valley will remind you of a desert, but it is in fact a rain shadow of the majestic Himalayan Range. It is important to note that this area has lots and lots of mysterious looking caves at various locations in the cliffs.

As the sayings go, the walled city of Lo-Manthang is at least one thousand years old – that prospered and flourished in the medieval trade route with Tibet and beyond. Still today, people travel to Tibet each year for their various needs. Located at the top of the Kali-Gandaki River basin, it is also called the Forbidden Kingdom of Lo-Manthang. Visiting this restricted area requires special permit. Mutli Adventure will take care of the papers while you prepare the trek to Upper Mustang. Requiring a good level of stamina, this adventurous trek is one of a kind in Nepal. Go on this trip for an experience of remote Nepal at the rain shadow of the mountains.
