Upper Mustang Trek
In October 1991 Nepal Government announced that all of Nepal was open to trekking groups .Only a handful of foreigners have ever visited this isolated region. It is to be hoped that the limited number of trekkers allowed into Mustang will also limit the amount of adverse change.
The ancient Kingdom of Mustang was attached to Tibet in the 14th century although it remained an autonomous dynasty. Later it was annexed by Nepal, but the people still remain predominantly Tibetan. Untouched by the outside world or the Chinese cultural revolution, 16th century monasteries still remain active to preserve this magnificent trans Himalayan kingdom ,with their unrivalled thankas, mandalas and deities.
Aj ourney to mustang is a journey of remarkable contrasts, stark Tibetan ladscapes contrast with lush rice fields and Hindu shrines with cliff hanging monasteries .
