Upper Mustang trekking in Nepal was officially opened in 1992 and limited numbers of trekkers are only allowed each year in order to protect and conserve the local Tibetan tradition and the fragile environment. Mustang trek unfolds the fabled forbidden kingdom’s vast and arid valleys, eroded canyons, yak caravans, colorful – painted mud brick houses on the back dropped of majestic mountain of Nilgiri, Tukche, Annapurna and Dhaulagiri.
This Upper Mustang trekking is one of the best trek to do even in the monsoon time as the entire Upper Mustang lies in the rain shadow, north of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges, completely sheltered from the monsoon downfall in Nepal. We take both ways of Pokhara Jomsom Pokhara flight on this Mustang trekking that does avoid the lower rainy section of Annapurna.

The best advantage of doing this cultural trek in monsoon time is that the village are full of local people busy at their every day works and the whole region are in bloom which makes really a fabulous contrast with the wind eroded hills, red cliffs and snow capped mountains on the back ground – a great vista. Thus upper Mustang trek is once in a lifetime destination to explore the fascinating medieval walled kingdom of Lo Manthang. Lo-Manthang is capital of Mustang still King Parbal Bista formal king used to look after border between Nepal And Tibet.
Now, Mustang trek we can do both way with camping trek and tea-house trek as well.After earthquake this trekking region is more safe but highway touching to border makes traveler quite tired with it’s black smoking and horns. Mostly trekker avoiding the highway beside doing another new trekking trail to Nuri valley via Tangye.
