Kingdom of Mustang

Map Image

Quintessentially Tibetan in character, the Mustang region is vast, wild and ruggedly beautiful. From the deepest valley in the world to stunning mountain landscapes, to one of Nepalâs longest prayer walls to the whitewashed walls of Lo Manthang, not to mention fields and orchards to barren rocky plains - this is truly a hidden mountain paradise. Trek through a constantly changing landscape, stay in tiny local guesthouses and embrace the spirit of rural life on this unbelievable travel adventure.

Itinerary

Days 1-2 Kathmandu

Explore traditional Kathmandu in the streets of the Old City or get a taste of its modern side amid the bright lights of the Thamel district. Discover temples, markets, palaces and winding alleys. While here, visit the Kathmandu Environmental Education Project (KEEP), a non-profit organisation that aims to reduce the negative influences of tourism by advocating and promoting minimum-impact trekking.

Days 5-15 Lo Manthang Mustang Trek

Witness the cultural and religious transformations in Mustang, from Manangi to Tibetan The scenery here also changes dramatically - from barren landscapes, to river valleys, to stunning mountain passes.
