Upper Mustang Trek

The most beautiful trek in Nepal,Mustang is lies in the north central part of Nepal, rain and shadow formed by the Annapurna & Nilgiri Himalayas thus gets very little rain which makes the area ideal for trekking even in the mid monsoon while the other areas of Nepal remain unviable for trekking due to heavy monsoon rain.Mustang was once an independent kingdom,although closely tied by language and culture to Tibet. From the 15th century to the 17th century, its strategic location granted Mustang control over the trade between the Himalaya and India.At the end of the 18 century the kingdom was annexed by Nepal.
The trek enters upper Mustang at Kagbeni, a quaint medieval town nestled in apple orchards and encircled by Snow Mountains. It eventually reaches the ancient capitol of Lo Manthang, a walled city built of whitewashed mud bricks and teeming with Buddhist prayer wheels and stupas, seeming to arise from the earth itself. The trek is rather easy as most of the path goes along the bank of Kali Gandaki River and eventually leads you to Lo Manthang, the capital of Mustang at 3730 meter, which is the highest point on this trip.Trek to this mystique kingdom which requires a special permit that costs US$ 500 per person for first 10 Days and $50 per person per day.
