Upper Mustang Trek to Lo Manthang the forbidden City

Upper Mustang Trek to Lo Manthang  is definitely an enchanting destination with astounding beauty for hikers and travellers with a penchant to trek in Nepal even during the summer months, when the rest of the sub- continent is relling in the monsoon rain. Mustang being in the rain shadow of the great Himalayan Range remains dry. Mustang is divided into lower and upper Mustang, and Kagbeni and Jomsom are the gateway to the mysterious Lo Manthang and Upper Mustang Trek.

Trekking in Upper Mustang

A trek in Upper Mustang is a rare opportunity, where you will get to experience the real life of the mountain people who for a very long time have had no contact with the outside world, and in the process have preserved their ancient cultural heritage. In more ways than one, the Upper Mustang Trek resembles to that of trekking in Tibet, as geographically too Upper Mustang is a part of the Tibetan Plateau. The distinct cultural identity that Upper Mustang resonates is quite different from almost the rest of Nepal .

Upper Mustang Trek – Best time to Trek

Area surrounding the Upper Mustang Trek being in the rain shadow is suitable for trekking even during the summer months when the rest of the Sub Continent has to deal with the monsoon rains coming in from the Indian Sub Continent. Upper Kaligandaki Valley where the upper Mustang Area falls gets little or no rain making it compatible to trek to Upper Mustang and Lo Manthang.

During winters Upper Mustang goes into hibernation because of the intense cold and snow, so planning a Upper Mustang Trek to Lo manthang is not advisable during the winter months.

Upper Mustang Trek – Cost of Permits

Upper Mustang Trek to Lo Manthang is definitely an enticing proposition but that comes at a cost.  US$500 for ten days and US$50 per day after ten days will be charged for the permit to visit Upper Mustang and Lo Manthang.

Religion and Culture

Upper Mustang shares it’s culture, Religion and Language with that of Tibet Autonomous Region and is therefore rich in Buddhist Culture. The main attraction of the Upper Mustang Trek is the three day Tiji festival held in Lo Manthang during the month of April – May. Tiji is an auspicious festival held annually in Tibetan rituals that depicts the story of a son that had to Save Mustang from destruction and the ritual dance is known as Tenpa Chirim.

Three Day Yartung Festival is another attraction celebrated in Lo Manthang, during the months of August – September

Highlights of the Trek

Hundreds of caves dug on the hill sides in Upper Mustang, and some of them highly inaccessible is another attraction of the Upper Mustang Trek. Ancient Buddhist paintings, Manuscripts and mummified bodies have been discovered in Caves near Lo Manthang in Upper Mustang

Getting there

Jomsom is the headquarter of  Upper Mustang and the nearest Airport ia also in Jomsom. Kagbeni eight Kilometer away from Jomsom is another gateway to Upper Mustang Region.
