Upper Mustang Trek is a wonderful excursion in the hidden Kingdom of Nepal. It lies in the North West of Nepal, having a large arid zone, beyond the stunning Annapurna Himalayan chain. The journey passes various Tibetan Buddhists’ settlements and the dry part surrounded by the brown sandy rocks and the seasonal flowers. Lomanthang, which is the centre of the Upper Mustang, is a major focused area of this trek.
Trek to Upper Mustang itinerary begins from the district centre of Mustang- Jomsom. The trek follows the bank of the Kali Gandaki River. It is a windy valley that carries sand. Walking during the midday is quite challenging. From Kagbeni, the trek splits towards the Upper Mustang region. Passing the white washed villages, that are typically made and the fluttering flags at the top of their houses, you move ahead and reach the stone-walled town of Lomanthang.
The ancient caves, Buddhist monasteries, Chhortens and other cultural heritages offer a greater scenario. People of Upper Mustang celebrate different festivals and Tiji is one of them. It is celebrated to ask for the rain and avoid doughtiness. Following the different retracing trail, it reaches to Jomsom (an extra day, it is wonderful to visit the Muktinath temple) and fly back to Pokhara.
