The Kingdom of Mustang: an authentic experience in the core of Mustang Region
In the core of the old hidden Buddhist kingdom of Mustang (“Mun Tan” meaning literally in Tibetan “the fertile land”). The region of Mustang, officially opened to tourism in 1992, only allows limited numbers of trekkers each year to protect and conserve the local traditions and its fragile environment. Mustang lies to the northwest of the Annapurna range and extends onto the Tibetan Plateau. Its mountain range forms a frontier basin to Tibet. Let’s discover Wild Yak Luxury’s Trip: The Kingdom of Mustang: an authentic experience.
Wild Yak Luxury offers a circuit Trek around Mustang by visiting Lo Manthang a medieval wall city, the capital of Upper Mustang and crossing many passes above 4000 meters. Besides such adventures, this Trek offers you the chance to discover the high Himalayan vegetation cultivated at around 3000 to 3500 meters and the colourful monastic artistic treasures of the various ethical local groups of the Gurung, Lopa, Thakalis and Tibetan populations.
The Journey starts with a stunning mountain flight to Jomsom and a short drive to picturesque stone-flagged villages surrounded by the high Himalayan apple orchards. Our Trek starts then along the Kali Gandaki river, following the salt caravan route of the olden days, where the people of Mustang traded Tibetan salt with grain from the lowlands. The road goes through a breathtaking scenery of the wild and isolated region of the Mustang valley with its eroded canyons, narrow valleys, typical Tibetan villages, Buddhist Gompas (monasteries) and cave monasteries in the cliffs. Surrounded by some of the highest mountains of the Himalaya: Dhaulagiri (8167m), Annapurna I (8091m) and many other 7000-meter peaks such as Tilicho, Nilgiri, Annapurna II, III and IV, Tukcha and the holly Machhapuchara (or “Fishtail”).
