Remote Area Treks

Upper Mustang Trek - 19 Days .

The Kingdom of Lo situated along the north central border of the Himalayas in the upper reaches of the Mustang District is by far Nepal’s most restricted trekking area. It was only opened to foreigners in 1992 and has been strictly regulated ever since. However, only limited tourists per year are allowed to visit this enchanting kingdom and are on a first come first serve basis.

The Kingdom of Mustang is an independent kingdom within Nepal and its King has allegiance to the King of Nepal. The King's palace is situated in the center of the walled city. The King’s duties are largely ceremonial, but he is highly respected by the people and consulted about many issues by villagers throughout Lo. This area has long been inhabited by Tibetan Buddhists who call themselves Lobas, people from Lo, and they practice a very sophisticated culture and economy. They speak various dialects of Tibetan. Historically, their art and culture flourished due to contact with traders, monks and religious masters passing between Tibet and India, or between Ladakh and Bhutan. The climate and geography of Upper Mustang are nearly identical to those of Western Tibet and as such, they are dramatically different from the temperate and tropical areas on the south side of the Himalayas. The dry, wind swept ecology of this Trans-Himalayan region is extremely fragile. Fuel wood is virtually non-existent, water is scare, the agricultural land yields insufficient food grains and the marginal grasslands support only limited numbers of livestock and wildlife. However trekking in this area is truly one of the rarest and most rewarding experiences in all Nepal.
