Upper Mustang Trek is an excursion to the forbidden Himalayan Kingdom, which is situated in the upper part of the Mustang region. The landscape is unique and wonderful, which is similar to the Tibetan arid highlands. Upper Mustang Trekking was opened in 1991 as a restricted area trekking and it requires a special restricted area trekking permit.  The trek offers the exciting Himalayan views, gorges passing wonderful ethnic villages.

The trek to Upper Mustang initiates from Pokhara with a short flight from the route between the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri Himalayan ranges. Landing at Jomsom, Upper Mustang trek approaches towards Kagbeni and split the trail to the hidden land of the Tibetan Buddhists. Walking through the windy valley is tough, however fluttering Buddhist prayer flags on the rooftop of the whitewashed houses, monasteries and Chhortens make the trip outstanding. Though the landscape of Upper Mustang is dry, there are several colourful flowers and vegetations that the local area can be seen awesome. This trek can be known as Lomanthang trek as it is the most significant places and a spiritual centre of the Tibetan Buddhists. It is surrounded by a stone wall. The lifestyle in Upper Mustang is traditional and cave style settlements. The cultural aspect is prospering in this mystical kingdom. Local people celebrate different festivals as Tiji. Their costumes rituals and social practices are surprising on the exploration day in Lo-Manthang you can visit the historical Palace, Monasteries, Chhortens and houses made of mud.
