Upper Mustang Trek is an exotic tour to the unspoiled villages that showcase rare medieval Buddhism arts, cultures as well as the unique beauty of the landscape of trans-Himalayan desert. Mustang was once a major ancient trading route between Thak Khola and Tibet. The world’s deepest gorge, the Kali Gandaki Valley, also lies in Mustang. In Tibetan, Mustang means fertile land Mustang, or the Kingdom of Lo, is an area located at the North-West of Nepal and it borders Tibet. Mustang was a prohibited area to foreigners up until 1991. Formerly independent, it is now an integral part of Nepalese territory (since 1951.) Located behind a mountainous barrier, Mustang sits in a rain shadow, unaffected by the monsoons. It has a dry, desert-like, and windy climate. Here one lives with the rhythm of the seasons isolated from modern time.
