Trip Overview

Upper Mustang trek of the old Buddhist kingdom of Mustang in the remote trans-Himalayan of Nepal is an exotic tour to the unspoiled villages of Nepal. It showcases rare medieval Buddhism arts, cultures as well as the unique beauty. This region lies in the landscape of the trans-Himalayan desert. Here, we will experience the life of true mountain people. This Last Forbidden Kingdom is not much in touch with the rest of the outside world.  Mustang has a separate kingdom that separates it from Nepal until the late 1950s.

This adventurous Upper Mustang trek gives the vibes of Tibet. This area can get a limited number of trekkers only. So visiting Lo Manthang is once in a lifetime opportunity. We can admire the uniqueness of tree-less landscape in this region. Rocky trails and views of the Mountains make it more beautiful. Nilgiri, Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, and other peaks play hide and seek with us during this trip.

Trek to Upper Mustang in Nepal lets you experience the remote forbidden kingdom. We organize a fixed departure during the time of the Tiji festival in Lo-Manthang. This special Upper mustang trekking needs special permits. To make it through Kagbeni we need to have this permit. Without this permit, no travelers will be able to step further in Mustang Region. Be sure to come with a certified travel agent like Parikrama Treks. It helps you to travel to the restricted zone of Nepal.

With Parikrama Treks and Expedition you will get to see more that one can imagine. You can also explore Upper Mustang on a motorbike or on a jeep. As per your pleasure you can join the Upper Mustang trek at the festival. Tiji Festival or Yartung festival is the most go if you want to take part in the High Mountains festival.
