Tour Overview

Upper Mustang trekking is located in the north of Annapurna region, which begins from Kakbeni. We approach Lo-Manthang on the west side of the Kali Gandaki and descend on the less visited east side of this valley. The valleys aredry with amazing colorful rock formations of cave dwellings high in the cliffs. The first parties were there allowed into Upper Mustang in 1992 and there are still very few trekkers visiting Upper Mustang, as a result, it one of the few places left where one can see undisturbed Tibetan culture.

Mustang is a remote semi- independent Tibetan Kingdom with a walled capital Lo-Manthang. Upper Mustang was once part of Tibet and was used by the salt caravans crossing the Himalaya into Nepal. In 1960's Mustang fought against Chinese forces for Tibetan Khamba guerrillas fir. CIA supported these fighters and secretly trained some of them in the USA.

Make an adventure starting from world's deepest gorge Kaligandaki region into world's highest region of Lo-Manthang valley that passes through an almost downhill and Panoramic view of Annapurna, Nilgiri Dhaulagiri, Machhapuchhre and other peaks.
