The land of Nomads, enchanting festivals, sprawling ridges, and high mountains. Trekking in Upper Mustang is truly one of the most rewarding experiences in Nepal Himalaya. These unique treks passes through the desert-like landscapes, barren ridges, deep canyons, eroded cliffs, and moraine valleys. It offers the traveler a delightful opportunity to trek off the beaten track and to see the primitive society that has remained unaffected by the western cultures for centuries.
Mustang is a secluded semi-independent Tibetan kingdom with a walled capital called Lo Manthang. The Upper Mustang was once part of Tibet and was used by salt caravans crossing the Himalaya to Nepal.
However, you should be aware of the festive season. The tea houses during the festival could be very busy and may not be available everywhere on the route.
The accommodation can be quite an issue during the Tiji festival. Because during the time, the locals and foreign trekkers also join in with the celebration.
