Upper Mustang (Lo-Manthang)
"Mustang" A forbidden Kingdom until late 90. Its an ancient Kigdom tucked away along the deepest river gorge in the world, the Kali Gandaki;a remote and starkly beautiful section of the "Tibetan" high altitude desert bordered to the South by some of the Highest Mountains- Annapurna & Dhaulagiri.
We continue the exploration of Mustang, started by the early, intrepid explorers of the Himalaya, taking some of the less trekked routes through this Sun-drenched region, often following the Kali Gandaki river-bed, other times trekking on spectacular trails high above it, and descending through incredibly sculpted gorges, wondering at the ancient cave dwellings we see carved into the Mountains.
Now is the right time to visit Upper Mustang while it is still pristine, intriguing and with a sense of the forbidden. It will very soon change as the roads are coming fast and people of this ancient culture are even starting to seell thier steeds. Now is the time ...when Nepal needs your real support.
