Upper Mustang Trekking is a Himalayan trip into the Forbidden Land of Mustang, especially to its center- Lo Manthang. It is situated in the northern border region of the Annapurna area at an altitude of 4000 meters over the sea level in standard. It is similar to the Tibetan plateau geographically and culturally. The valleys around Lo-Manthang are dry, but surrounded by the colourful flowers, sandy rock formations and various cave settlements. The trek to Upper Mustang is permitted only in 1992 as a restricted area trekking in Nepal.

Trek to Upper Mustang is also popular as a trek to Lo Manthang, which is a capital of this region. The walled city runs with the semi-independent authority. The trekking route of the Upper Mustang was used as the salt caravan route in the history, crossing the Himalayan passes to reach the Tibetan plateau. It lies in the rain shadow area of the western Himalayas, which is suitable for any time treks. The Tibetan influenced ethnic villages are jeweled with the Monasteries, Chhortens and the religious sites. The trekking commences from the Kali Gandaki region of Jomsom, which is a centre of the Mustang region. A picturesque flight from Pokhara takes you to Jomsom and continues the trek. The barren land begins as soon as the trek begins through the Kali Gandaki River bank. The Himalayan views as of Annapurna, Nilgiri, Dhaulagiri, high peaks, valleys on the high altitude and various ranges of flowers can be explored.  Travelling around the brilliant desert landscape with colorful flowers and crossing the Himalayan passes, you reach to Lo Manthang, which is a final destination of this trekking package.

Vertex Holiday offers magnificent Upper Mustang Treks with excellent arrangement. It is amazing to trek during the Tiji festival, celebrated in Lo Manthang. During the trek in Upper Mustang, you get an opportunity to feel the culturally loaded customs and lifestyles of the ethnic communities.
