Overview

Introduction

Trek in Upper Mustang is a rare privilege. Here you will experience the way of life of true mountain people, who were not much in touch with the rest of Nepal for hundreds of years, and even until recent times had an officially recognized king. Upper Mustang, being in the Himalayan rain shadow, is one of the regions in the country. Upper Mustang trek is not particularly difficult, the highest point reached being only 4200 meters, but the conditions at times can be difficult.

To enter Upper Mustang, that is to travel further north from Kagbeni, trekkers need special trekking permit and must be accompanied by a government certificate holder trekking guide. In many ways, a trek into Upper Mustang is similar to trekking in Tibet, as geographically it is a part of the Tibetan plateau. The district of Mustang was, until 1950, a separate kingdom within the boundaries of Nepal. The last king, the Raja of Mustang, still has his home in the ancient capital known as Lo Manthang. Mustang’s status as a kingdom ended in 2008 when its suzerain Kingdom of Nepal became a republic. The influence of the outside world, especially China, is growing and contributing to rapid change in the lives of Mustang’s people. Mustang, formerly Kingdom of Lo, is a remote and isolated region of the Nepalese Himalayas.The Upper Mustang was a restricted demilitarized area until 1992 which makes it one of the most preserved regions in the world, with a majority of the population still speaking traditional Tibetan languages. Tibetan culture has been preserved by the relative isolation of the region from the outside world.

Tiji is greatest festival in mustang region. Thousand men, women and children participate in the annual elaborate re-enactment of the Tiji myth, telling of a deity named Dorje Jon who battles his demon father to save the kingdom from destruction. It will be our unique privilege to witness the same color, costume, dancing and ritual that were displayed by these people in this place more than six hundred years ago.

Upper mustang Trek becomes best attraction these days for the trekkers around the world. Upper mustang is fully tea house supported Trek. Nowadays, you can stay Lodge to Lodge. Tea house trek is comparatively least cost so that it is affordable most of you.
