1 TREKKING JOURNEY TO LO MANTHANG: UPPER MUSTANG Welcome to the guided trekking journey into the Forbidden Kingdom of Upper Mustang with your ultimate destination to Lo Manthang. Your trek is an adventure through the most stunning valleys of Mustang with spectacular mountain views and an opportunity to experience the ethnic culture of Nepal. The route entails traveling across desert like landscape, barren ridges, deep canyons, eroded cliffs and over 4000 meter high passes you will be spell bound. Nestled on the border of Tibet, to the north of the Annapurna range and south of the Tibetan plateau, Mustang has been relatively untouched by outside influences. From the mid 1960 s Mustang was closed to the world, however in 1992, the Nepalese government reopened the region by special permit. Upper Mustang is made up of 34 settlements with the most densely populated settlement at Lo Manthang. There are many species of wildlife, many of which are endangered. Much of the Mustang area is made up of high altitude steppe. Vegetation cover is sparse and snow and strong winds accelerate the erosion process. The irrigated alluvial parts are use intensively for cultivation whilst the lower slopes and alpine meadows are used for grazing. Upper Mustang was once an independent kingdom, although closely tied by language and culture to Tibet. From the 15th century to the 17th century, its strategic location granted Mustang control over the trade between the Himalayas and India. This ancient trade route remained in use until China's annexation of Tibet in China revitalised the trade route and in 2001 completed a 20km road from the international border to Lo Manthang. Road building south of Lo Manthang has been made difficult due to the Kali Gandaki gorge and was completed in 2015 and is suitable for high clearance and 4wd vehicles only. Mustang is cold and arid with temperatures plummeting to -25C at times in Lo Manthang. All agricultural activities take place in April to October when the weather is mild. November to March is severe with snow. Mountain passes become blocked and many settlements are cut-off. Strong winds and high solar radiation are common, and the tough weather conditions cause a large winter migration into the lower regions of Nepal.Travel to Upper Mustang is notan adventure that is taken lightly. Your guides will ensure you are well looked after. Special permits are required for entry into the Forbidden Kingdom. This and the weather partly ensures the number of visitors to the area are much lower than in other areas of Nepal and this has led to Upper Mustang remaining true to its culture and way of life. The most suitable time to visit is March to May and October. In November and February it can be cold but it is still good travelling weather. December to January is for the diehard adventurers. We would be pleased to have you along on this remote wilderness adventure and introduce you to our way of life while your travel as part of my extended family.
