Upper Mustang Trek
The Upper Mustang Trek, nestled in the rain shadow of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges in Nepal, offers a unique and culturally rich adventure. In around 10 days, trekkers traverse arid landscapes, ancient Tibetan villages, and monasteries. Permits are required, and the region remains restricted, preserving its Tibetan culture. Highlights include Lo Manthang, a walled city with stunning architecture, and the eerie beauty of the desert-like terrain. Expect dramatic canyons, rock formations, and Buddhist murals in caves. The trek provides an opportunity to witness the traditional lifestyle of the Mustangi people, making it a captivating and remote journey for those seeking an off-the-beaten-path experience.
