Mustang Trek also polularly called as Trek to the Forbidden Kingdom of Mustang is a restricted area trek in Nepal and is sure to bring a feeling of going back in times as we travel through some cultures you have never seen before and might never see again. Mustang Trek is an epic journey that takes you to the Forbidden Kingdom of Mustang.
The ancient and mysterious Kingdom of Lo, as it is known to its inhabitants, is now open to a limited number of visitors. We very proudly have been helping to establish Environmental Association in conjunction with the King and the Royal Family, to preserve the area's unique and fragile environment.
We fly in and out of Jomsom to avoid the long approach march, and trek up the west side of the valley, with spectacular views of Mount Dhaulagiri, Mount Nilgiri and the mighty Annapurna massif from the pass at 13,000 feet above the sea level after visiting Tserang, the second city of Mustang.
Our Mustang Trek (Trek to the Forbidden Kingdom of Mustang) continues on through dramatic desert scenery of red and ochre fluted cliffs, to the fabled mediaeval walled city of Lo Manthang. We spend the next few days visiting the outlying temples and villages using Lo Manthang as a base; we may even be lucky enough to have an interview with the King of a kingdom within Nepal.
Then we take a steep descent into the gorge to visit friends in Dhi (where we will no doubt be treated to some traditional Tibetan hospitality). Our return journey takes us over a spectacular pass at 13,000 feet above the sea level and back to the airstrip in Jomsom.
