Upper Mustang

Above the tree line, the vast barren landscape of the Upper Mustang region, dotted with ancient forts, walled medieval villages and monasteries rich in Buddhist art, offers its few visitors a year a fascinating glimpse into this remote enclave of Tibetan Culture. A deliberate policy of cultural and environmental preservation has meant that Mustang remains one of the world’s most special trekking destinations. Entry is limited and special trekking permits are required. Organized groups are allowed entry and a Government Officer must accompany the group. 12 to 14 days should be allowed for Upper Mustang and it may also be combined with the Jomsom trek. A reasonable fitness level is required. We organise both tea house and camping, whichever you prefer.
