Upper Mustang is one of the mysterious places of Nepal which is blessed with incredible natural vistas and enigmatic cultural practices. Situated at the trans-border region of Nepal and Tibet, upper Mustang was part of autonomous Tibet so it portrays charismatic religious rites and rituals which are based on Tibetan Buddhism. Located against backdrop of Dhaulagiri massif forming a naturally rugged and barren terrain with rock cliff and caves, Upper Mustang preserves the natural beauties and cultural practices which are still intact. The virgin land has abundance of sources for cultural and nature enthusiasts to explore and definitely for the travellers to have life time experience.

The royal palace, beautifully carved Mani stones, Chortens, monasteries and Gompas are waiting to welcome you to the far flung Himalayan villages of Nepal where you will closely observe strange religious practices and alluring natural landscapes. Apart from cultural and religious strangeness, Upper Mustang trekking offers soul stirring view of snowcapped mountains like Annapurna, Dhualagiri, Nilgiri and other.
