Upper Mustang Trek - 13 Days

In many ways a trek into upper mustang is similar to trekking in Tibet as geographically it is the part of the Tibetan Plantae. Until 1950 the district of Mustang was a separate kingdom within the boundaries of Nepal. The last king of Mustang still has his palace in the Ancient Capital known as Lomangthang.

Upper mustang was opened to non Nepali trekkers only some fifteen years ago and even today access is highly restricted to enter upper mustang. Trekkers need specially trekking permit and must be accompanied by a government appointed officers. Upper mustang being in the Himalayan rain shadow is one of the region in the country which is suitable for trekking even during monsoon. Upper Mustang is the continuation of lower mustang. On the Annapurna circuit people and landscape are much different, formally and still locally known  as the kingdom of upper mustang was a restricted  demilitarised area until 1992 this was because of the close primality to Tibet.
