Upper Mustang Trek
Mustang is the combination of beauty and adventure, and you realize this as you trek on its dry, barren yet picture perfect land. Even the small villages where you spend your nights make you speechless with their beauties. The trekking trail that takes you to these villages also takes you to mysterious caves, canyons, and valleys. Side by side the beauties include the paintings that are inside the ancient monasteries situated in the region. Adventure also includes crossing many passes of over 3000 m, and from the top of these passes, superb views of snow-capped mountains and barren hills can be seen. The colorful deserts of Lo-Manthang, walled capital of the former Kingdom of Lo, await you with the quaint traditional Tibetan settlement and offer you a horse-riding journey to the fantastic Chooser Cave. While walking through quiet and solitary paths of Mustang, you encounter authentic culture as you visit the sacred places like Luri Gumba and Muktinath, which give you an insight of the practices of the Hindu and Buddhist people living in the region. Mustang Circuit Trek meets all your expectation of trekking in the wilderness as it shows to you the unique side of Nepal.
