Major attraction and actually an opportunity during our Upper Mustang trek is the walled city of Lo-Manthang palaces. Upper Mustang is known as forbidden kingdom and still sees very few tourists each year. Trek along the land of canyons of the Kali Gandaki River, across the rugged land where people have saved their centuries old culture in Buddhist chortens, small stupas, atop hills, on pathways leading into villages and even inside caves. Tibetan Buddhism and the myths are intertwined threads that are in turn woven into the landscape.
Finally as you reach Lo Manthang, we will also arrange your meeting to King of Mustang, Jigme Parbal Bista in the walled capital Lo Manthang. Yes, Nepal is republic but Mustang even today has a king! The Mustangi locals have their own head of the tribe whom they respect, he is known as Mustangi King. Visit the three red-walled monasteries at the heart of the town; watch the astonishing way of life and family life around the nomadic villages.
The best time to trek around Upper Mustang Trek is from the month of March to November. This trek can be joined even during the monsoon season as Upper Mustang lies in rain-shadow area and receives negligible amount of rainfall. So, except in winter due to extreme cold, this trek to the hidden kingdom is recommended during anytime of the year.
