Mustang was opened to foreigners only in 1992 and a visitor requires a special permit to enter this Forbidden Kingdom. Trekking in Mustang takes you to the wind-swept valleys and arid landscape with its age-old Buddhist culture which is reminiscent of that in Tibet.
Mustang is one of those few places on earth where the ancient Buddhist culture has survived due to loss of its connection from the outside world for so long. The walled city of Lomanthang, dilapidated fortresses, old monasteries, stupas, ancient caves and rugged landscape chiseled by wind erosion will surely blow your mind when you visit Upper Mustang.
While the upper valley is dry and rugged, the lower Mustang is lush with green forests and farmland. Due to its location in the rain shadow, Upper Mustang Trek is possible to do during monsoon which is the best time for some of their biggest festivals. Upper Mustang Trek is a very unique trip that will take you to the land lost in time.
To be met by a Mystic Himalaya representative and transferred to your hotel. Welcome dinner in the evening at a traditional Nepali restaurant.
