18 Day Mustang Trek
Mustang is the ancient Himalayan Kingdom which lies in the northern central part of Nepal and at the top of the Kaligandaki River. Upper Mustang consists of two distinct regions: the southern part and the north where the languages, culture and traditions are alike to those of the Tibetan people. This area is considered one of the most interesting and picturesque places in Nepal.
The trek to Lo- Manthang is through high altitude desert country climbing in and out of the huge sided valley of the Kali Gandaki. In places, the gorge which the Kali Gandaki River runs through is the deepest in the world. This region is full of some of Nepal’s oldest Buddhist Monasteries, ancient and isolated villages with quaint whitewashed houses.
Lo Manthang the walled city, once only accessible by foot or mules now is connected by road with rest of Nepal making the Jeep safari trip to upper Mustang possible. So you have the option to trek or take 4 Wheel drive through the most isolated, rugged and fascination medieval the Himalayan Kingdom. The Mustang jeep drive tour to upper Mustang no doubt offers one of the fascinating driving tour experience into the Himalayas in short time to explore the diverse culture and topography of one of the restricted regions in Nepal. We drive one place to another allowing us enough time to explore all the sights and sound of the upper Mustang region.
