Upper Mustang Trek

Trip Highlights

  • Muktinath temple located in this region holds a great significance for Hindu and Buddhists, We can see 108 holy stone taps at the height of 7 feet surrounding the pagoda style temple
  • The numerous monasteries, mahne walls, and caves of the Upper Mustang shows the rich culture
  • Witness the first rays of Sun falling on the mountains
  • Walk through the Kaligandaki river and witness the ammonite fossils in the bank of Kaligandaki river also known as “Saligram”

You have not lived the mountain life if you haven’t done three things; first, witness the Sunrise from the mountains;  there is no beauty like the first rays of the sun falling on the peaks; Second, relive the day with the most thrilling sunset ever and finally look up at the clear night sky; with a new found wonder as what you witness will leave you to star-struck, literally. Such is the wonder of Upper Mustang also popularly termed as the forbidden kingdom of Nepal.

The Upper Mustang Trek in the Annapurna Region is a unique blend of wonder and mystery at an altitude of 3,810m. Mountains such as the Nilgiri(7,062m), Dhaulagiri(8,167m) and Annapurna(8,091m) will keep us company as we reach the of the Kingdom of Lo in Upper Mustang.

The area in our trek may look inhabitable but the settlements here date back to the centuries. Upper Mustang trek nestled in such a prime position was a trade route during the 16th century. Tibetan neighborhood influences the culture of The kingdom of Lo that is rich in history and traditions. The caves found in top hills across Mustang bear witness to the culture of the people that once inhabited these areas.

One Review to “Upper Mustang Trek”

    • Dolma M

    As I was a solo traveler, Himalayan Summit helped me pair up with another one and took care of all the necessary logistics. Everything went smoothly and my trek couldn’t have been better. I was there in December and there were very few trekkers on the way. My guide was Ganga was great and knowledgeable. He went beyond his ways to make sure we have a great trip. Really unforgettable movements with Himalayan Summit team.
