The Upper Mustang trek is the ultimate gateway to the mysterious world of the old Buddhist kingdom of Mustang, also called Lo manthang. Once forbidden and isolated from the rest of the world for decades, the area was able to evolve within its own distinctive culture and rich traditions closely tied to Tibet. This moderate, lesser-known trek passes through one of the driest regions of Nepal and provides spectacular mountain scenery at Rain Shadow area of Nepal.

General idea about trek

The Upper Mustang circuit trek is the best way to enter the enigmatic world of Mustang, also known as Lo- Manthang, an ancient Buddhist kingdom. The region, which was once forbidden and cut off from the outside world for decades, was able to develop its own unique culture and rich traditions that were closely connected to Tibet. This moderate, lesser-known trek offers breathtaking mountain scenery in Nepal's Rain Shadow region while passing through one of the driest areas of the country.

This inaccessible trans-Himalayan mountain region in the past, which borders Tibet, has a distinctly Tibetan feel to it in terms of both its people and culture as well as its arid landscape of cliffs and unusually shaped and colored rocks. The trek stops in Kagbeni, the entrance to Upper Mustang, before continuing through a desolate landscape in the Dhaulagiri massif's rain shadow to Lo-Manthang, the seat of previous kings of the Kingdom of Lo Manthang. Explore the caves, natural rock art, monasteries, and Gompas to learn more about the local culture. Gyakar Gompa the renowned Gompa, is a short distance from Lo Manthang. But now that there are roads connecting the areas of Lo Manthang, trekkers have recently had to navigate numerous jeep trails.

However this trekking experience will take you to one of the ancient salt trade route via Yara, Ghara, Tangbe and other places.

Trekking to village of Yara and Ghara is more like off beaten trail. The pristine land has a lot to offer. The beautiful landscapes, the influenced Tibetan culture of the place. The land feels like piece of heaven on earth. The trekking in this unspoiled land is offers the vibes of peace and tranquility. The desert kind of land is unmarked and people can get lost too. The marking is sort of long standing flags and the trail itself. The rocky mountain dessert trail is not that difficult yet mentally challenging as you ascend and descend and it’s on loop. You can see less amount of cultivated land in small and scattered village where traditional Chortens and Mani walls which reflect faith in Buddhism.

We recommended this trip from March to end of November. June to September is a also best time to visit in order to see the vegetation of the Himalayan plateau. Upper mustang lies in the rain shadow area of Himalayas. This is a great place to see the grace of the monsoon season.
