In the Annapurna region lies the Upper Mustang, which is also known as “the Forbidden Kingdom.” Ruled by a king, the Raja of Mustang, the region opened its gate to the public in the late 90s. Filled with ancient history and culture that is similar to the Tibetans, the region has minimal contact with the modern world.
Located in the Tibetan plateau, the geography and culture feel similar to that of Tibet, but in many ways, it is distinct and unique. The trek starts from Kathmandu, where you need to get special permits as the Upper Mustang is a restricted area. Then, you drive to Pokhara and fly to Jomsom, where your trek officially begins. The trail goes along the barren, yet the charming landscape of Mustang. You trek to beautiful villages like Kagbeni and Syangmochen.
Trekking deep into the Kali Gandaki Valley, you ascend to Lo Manthang, which is the capital of Mustang. Here, you get to see the palace where the king used to reside. The historic caves like Luri Cave give meaningful insight into the history of the region. There are many monasteries as well, like Ghar Gompa and Thubchen Gompa that provide more understanding of the region.
Enjoying the arid landscape with barley fields here and there, you head to Muktinath, a holy place for many Hindu and Buddhist pilgrims. Since the Upper Mustang lies in the rain-shadow area, it is favorable to trek in this region during the monsoon season as well.
