Upper Mustang is a mysterious, ancient and hardly accessible kingdom located in the north of Annapurna region in Nepal. Mustang is popularly known as the ‘Kingdom of Lo’ which actually belongs to Tibetan land and culture. Mustang is an isolated place which became available for trekking around a decade ago. Mustang trekking trail is now popular in Nepal which pass along the bed of valley most of the times. During rainy times, we might have to walk along the edge of the valley when the level of river is high. However, rainy season is very occasional here and therefore, Mustang trekking can easily be done almost throughout the year. There is no need of a great physical strength for Mustang trekking as there are no high pass crossings. Along Lo Manthang route, trekking is considered to be much easier.
Mustang trekking means walking through dry and barren landscapes. Mustang hides behind the majestic Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges and has relatively less rainfall than other regions of Nepal. In the afternoon time, you might face strong winds blowing in this region. One reason why you should choose upper Mustang trek is because it offers long-lived, unspoiled and unchanged culture and lifestyle as the region was not permitted to the individual visitors.

Recommend Mountain Hawk for anyone going trekking in Nepal
Mountain Hawk were recommended to me by friends who trekked with them last year on their honeymoon. From the organising perspective, couldn't have been easier. Prem was quick to reply to any emails as I worked out exactly what I wanted to, which ended up going to Chitwan NP and doing the Everest Base Camp trek.

Annapurna Circuit in August
Mountain Hawk treks organized a great trek for my family and I during the month of August 2011. The team of porters and our guide were excellent and very attentive. We had beautiful weather and plenty of wildlife.

Annapurna Circuit in May
it was great while we were there together on the mountains etc. All in the same boat and as they say that sinking feeling but we were adamant and were keen on not letting the ship drown and carried on and persevered and eventually we saw light at the end of the tunnel - literally - we reached muktinath -a very holy place for buddhists and hindus alike !!!
