Upper Mustang, also known as a ‘Mini Tibet of Nepal’ and a very well-liked trekking in Nepal, has been described as “Mountain Desert". The trekking tour to Lo Manthang- isolated region is a incredibly satisfying one for those who want to experience the hospitality and warmth of the locals living in this remote region.

Nepal Government Department of Immigration started to issue only a small number of special trekking permits since 1992. Before 1992 the region was banned to visit for foreign travelers. Upper Mustang is a perfect destination where generous scope is offered for visiting Buddhists Monasteries. This semi autonomous and heavily Tibetan influenced region was described by Tillman as fascinatingly ugly country, the more fascinating for being so little known" indeed, the trek to Lo Manthang is through an almost treeless barren landscape, a steep rocky trail up and down hill, mind-blowing panorama of Nilgiri, Annapurna, Dhaulagiri and several others peaks make your trek spectacular with lifetime experience. Trek begins from Jomsom - reachable by a scenic flight and accessible by walk from Ghorepani-Poon Hill-Tatopani-Jomsom and Kali Gandaki Valley trekking route.
