Join Sherpa Tours on an epic journey of Upper Mustang trek in Nepal for a National Geographic quality experience - a spectacular trek into the remote Trans-Himalayan mountain area with unspoiled Tibetan culture, the high desert region of the Tibetan influence, thousand years of old monastery, caves, local tribes and scenic beauties of the different landscapes.
Separated from the rest of country by the remoteness of Himalayas, Upper Mustang is rare jewel of Nepal has preserved one of the last remnants of traditional Tibetan culture, mountain communities in which the pre-Buddhist Bonpo religion is still practised. Time has literally stood still for centuries in this spiritual sanctuary as inhabitants of Tibetan stock continue to live, cultivate and trade the way they have done for hundreds of years.
The trek starts from world's deepest gorge Kaligandaki Region into world's highest regions of Lo-Mangthang Valley that passes through an almost tree-less barren landscape, a steep rocky trail up and down hill and panoramic views of Nilgiri, Annapurna, Dhaulagiri and several other peaks. The trek passes through high peaks, passes, glaciers, and alpine valleys. The thousands years of isolation has kept the culture, lifestyle and heritage remain unchanged for centuries and to this date. The houses in Mustang are mostly made from stone and sun baked mud bricks. The city wall and the four storey palace in Lo-Manthang are some of the beautiful architectures of Mustang region.
The Transhimalayan Mustang Region is also known as the Last Forbidden Kingdom, since the region was restricted for outsiders until Nepal Government announced the opening of the restricted areas in October 1991. The region is controled to preserve the region from outside influence and hence requires a special trekking permit.
This trek is geared towards people who love adventurous journey to 'out-of-the-way' places untouched by human progress. This is a unique trek, which follows one of the most beautiful and culturally rich trekking routes in Annapurna, Nepal taking you very close to the Tibetan boarder in a controlled region known as Trans-Himalaya.
