Upper Mustang Trekking - 18 Days

Kathmandu, Nepal (PressExposure) June 09, 2014 -- Introduction: A fascinating, wonderful journey in the Far North Western at Upper Mustang with Great Adventure Treks & Expeditions, this trip begins with a drive or flight to scenic Pokhara, and then a short flight to Nepal's North West at Jomsom 2,716m Jomsom, a large town and a head-quarter of the Mustang region with a small airstrip just above by the river Kaligandaki, from here heading towards Lomanthang the old kingdom of Mustang.

Mustang has an average elevation of 3,000 meter, situated to the north between World's 7th and 10th highest Mt. Dhaulagiri 8167m and Mt.Annapurna 8,091 m and is the main Himalayan range and geographically an extension of Tibetan Plateau, this high land wind swept valley is barren with eroded canyons, colorful rock formations.

Fascinating old Tibetan culture, traditions and religions still exists, with a tinge of Shangri-la, and the old walled city of Lho-Manthang where the kingdom lies within its large desert like territory close to the border of Western Tibet.

Well known, intrepid explorers such as Professor David Snellgrove and the Italian scholar Guiseppi Tucci visited Mustang in the 1950's and it has largely been their tales of a Tibetan like arid region that has placed interest in this once forbidden kingdom area.

After a wonderful time at Upper Mustang return to Jomsom by an alternative route offering you the best of this beautiful country, Great Adventure Treks & Expeditions to Upper Mustang concludes with a memorable journey at Jomsom with a flight or drive back to Kathmandu via Pokhara.
