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.

Experienced and extremely knowledgeable guide about trekking
We completed the Everest Base Camp in December 2008 with Prem and we had an incredible time. When you have no previous serious trekking experience and no experience in Nepal, travelling with the right guide is the single most important element of your trip and we have to say we felt very lucky.

Prem was my guide and friend during my Everest Base Camp - Gokyo trek in Oct 2007. Prem is an excellent guide in many ways. He has great knowledge of the mountains, the people, the cultures and special things that only an experienced local guide can provide
