The Mustang Region is a hidden paradise located in the Himalayas. The Upper Mustang region is situated in the rain shadow area, which receives less rain in the summer. The northern part of Kagbeni resembles the Tibetan plateau, often called Upper Mustang. Despite being intimately attached to Tibet in the 14th century, Mustang was an independent kingdom.
Trekking through the Mustang region takes you through the barren landscape of the forbidden kingdom. The trek extends into a wilderness camping experience, with the Damodar Saribung Traverse connecting the isolated Nar and Phu Valley. The barren landscape of the Tibetan plateau offers a fascinating mix of unique culture and unmatched spiritual purity that can’t be found elsewhere in the Himalayas. Mustang offers an extraordinary geographical arrangement and is still the world’s top destination for trekking. The Upper Mustang Trek was opened for group trekking in 1992.
