Mustang Trek | Cosmic Trekking and Expedition
Mustang is the hidden kingdom in the world. On top of Kaligandaki River, Mustang lies in the north of the Annapurna region bordered with Kagbeni village. The last point of Upper Mustang trek reaches to Lo-Mangthang, a walled city of whitewashed mud bricks with wonderful Buddhist prayer wheels and stupas. Mustang preserves one of the undisturbed Tibetan cultures in the world.
The trekking to Upper Mustang starts from the north of Kagbeni. In Upper Mustang, we can see Buddhist oldest monasteries and nunneries built into forbidding cliffs and mountain ledges. Mustang trek was opened in 1990 that is still a restricted area for the cultural conservation.
To get 10days trek permit, one must pay US $500 government royalty. The best season for Mustang trekking is May, June and July.
Dry landscape and muddy cave, Lo-Mangthang Palace, indigenous people and culture and ancient monasteries are the main attractions of Mustang trek.
