Overview And Highlights

We all are well known of the fact that the wall city of Lo Manthang which is an unofficial capital of Mustang still manages to remain a kingdom within a kingdom. The early history to Lo Manthang is truly a myth and legend rather than the recorded fact. Mustang has maintained its status as a separate principality until 1951. The king of Lo Manthang still retains his title and he has been given the honorary rank of Colonel in the Nepal army.
The actual Trekking in Mustang was officially opened in 1992. Since it is highly gifted with natural elements government allows limited numbers of trekkers each year in order to protect and conserve the local Tibetan tradition and the fragile environment. A trek into this fabled forbidden kingdom of vast, arid valleys, eroded canyons, ochre valley, yak caravans, colorful-painted mud brick houses on the back dropped of majestic mountain of Nilgiri, Tukche, Annapurna and Dhaulagiri makes Mustang trekking more fruitful and worthy.

Upper Mustang is a restricted area and up till 1992 it was forbidden for foreign visitors to enter the kingdom. Nowadays foreigners are allowed, but to enter Upper Mustang they have to buy a permit of US$ 500. Commence this fascinating trek to enjoy the natural and cultural beauty of Nepal.

Best Time To Trek In Upper Mustang

When the weather is at its best and offers the best trekking experience, spring and fall are the ideal seasons to begin the Upper Mustang trip. The area comes alive with vivid blooms and gentle warmth from March to May in the summer, providing pleasant days for exploration. The horizon and stunning vistas of the neighboring mountains appear. These seasons' days are typically dry, making it easier to move through the higher mustangs' dry patches. Because there is a chance of considerable rainfall during the rainy season (June to August), which makes the routes slick and unfit for hiking, it can be difficult. In a similar vein, hiking is challenging during the chilly winter months of December through February due to heated weather and snow-covered roadways. deciding to go hiking travelers may fully enjoy Upper Mustang's cultural and natural treasures in the most tranquil and stunning environments in the spring or fall.
