Upper Mustang Region

Nature At Its Best

Mustang region is the remote and isolated region of the Nepalese Himalayas which used to be a restricted area until 1992 making it one of the most preserved regions in the world. Upper mustang is comprised of two thirds of mustang district of Dhaulagiri zone. The southern part of the district is homeland of Thakali people who speak Thakali language, whose culture is composed of Nepali and Tibetan culture.

Trekking in Upper Mustang is considered as a concession by many people as they get to explore the rare culture and civilization of such people who are not much in touch with Nepalese political or social attributes for hundreds of years. Even still, many people in that particular region are not familiar with Nepalese culture and political system.

The Mustang trek is not particularly difficult, with the highest point being only 3,800 meters. Getting to Mustang is easy too; the trip starts from Pokhara then to Jomsom, from where trekking begins to Mustang. This makes the trip to Mustang convenient and but during conditions it can also become pretty laborious. Mustang gets cold in winter, dusty and windy during the whole year. It is important to avoid treks during winter as the weather during winter is harsh and unsuited for trekking trips. Mustang treks takes around 9 days for completion. It begins and ends in Kagbeni. There are scattered settlements and little signs of cultivation in this region; thus the place represents a desert.

Lo Manthang, the old capital, can be reached in four days but it is at least recommended to spend one extra day to catch the sights and sound of this unique walled settlement. Riding ponies by hiring them, is also possible if one wants. Upper Mustang provides travelers an opportunity to get familiar with the locals’ culture and also passing by some UNESCO world heritage sites comes within the trek to Upper Mustang.
