Upper Mustang Trek

The land of Mustang is dry and barren as it receives very less rainfall. The exoticness of this place is beyond any word of description. The land is similar to that of the Tibetan plateaus – dry, barren and arid. The desert like landscape doesn’t possess any kind of vegetation except few plants that grow in dry places. The village of Mustang is alluring and captivating. The high walls with the views of rigid mountains in the background, it nothing less than a picturesque portrait.

Upper Mustang Trek is like a treasure hunt where you travel to the mysterious places. The desert like landscape will haunt you but the hidden caves and artistic monasteries built there is like a reward for your hard work and endurance capacity to spend your time in such a remote place. As you follow your trail, you will come across the Gompas, prayer flags and monasteries which is an evidence to the Tibetan Buddhist culture prevalent in this place. The local people residing in this region are Lobas. These people follow Buddhism and regard themselves as the descendants to Tibet.
