The Mustang valley was closed to foreigners until 1992 and this ‘Forbidden Kingdom of Mustang dates back over a thousand years.  It is situated  on the southern tip of the Tibetan Plateau and boarders the Annapurna region of Nepal.
We enter the Mustang valley through Kagbeni in the Kali Gandaki Valley and trek up to the walled city of Lo Manthang which is considered the crown jewel of the Upper Mustang. We will spend a rest day in Lo Manthang with the opportunity to visit the local Monastery and take  a side trip by horse back to visit some amazing caves which are thousands of years old.

After returning to Kagbeni we trek up to the religious site of the scared Hindu temple of Muktinath where we will see pilgrims flocking to prayer.

The Himalayan mountains surround us at every turn, with great views of  Nilgiri, Tilicho, Annapurna 1, Bhrikuti and the East face of Dhaulagiri. Just amazing.
This Upper Mustang trek will indeed make for quite a humbling experience and a holiday of a lifetime.
