Upper Mustang Trek 1850USD

The sacred, isolated Upper Mustang is tucked away on the less-traveled, "hidden" side of the Annapurna/Dhaulagiri Mustang District in the Himalayas. Despite being geographically located in Nepal, the region encircled by this trek bears a palpable Tibetan influence. Experience the spiritual wonder of thousand-year old monasteries, as well as chortens and gompas that all but blend into the landscape. This circuit is one off the beaten path in terms of Himalayan adventures, and the remoteness can be appreciated in the barren, undisturbed views and isolation of the traditional villages we visit. We organize this trek as either a camping trek, or a teahouse/lodge trek - the choice is up to you, and depends solely upon your wishes for exploring the culture and landscape.
