Upper Mustang Trek – Trip Overview
Upper Mustang trek offers spectacular hiking experiences in the remote Himalayas of Nepal. The 17-day trip begins in Kathmandu and visits the UNESCO World Heritage site. Then we drive to Pokhara and fly to Jomsom the next day to start the trek. Upper Mustang was also known as the last taboo kingdom because it was not opened until the 1990s. While hiking in the Upper Mustang area of Nepal, we can enjoy tree-free landscapes, rocky trails and unique views of Nilgiri, Annapurna, Dhaulagiri and the other Himalayas. Mustang has maintained its status as a separate principality until 1951. The king of Lo Manthang still retains his title and he has been given the honorary rank of Colonel in the Nepalese Army.
