Mustang Trek is one of the best-preserved destinations in all of the Himalayas, the region has been protected by special permits limiting tourist travel.
It is a rare privilege to travel within the Kingdom of Lo (as Mustang is locally known), and Mountain Madness will take you on an unforgettable journey to the heart of this Forbidden Kingdom.
In the 7th century, Tibet conquered the Kingdom of Mustang and held it for more than 800 years before it later became part of Nepal.
This austere and arid region derives its style, culture, and language from old Tibet, and traditional culture has continued here undisturbed by Chinese colonization.
Our 24-day trip includes 15 days hiking across the desert plateau, past red-gold cliffs and windswept monasteries to reach the ancient capital of Lo Manthang.
Here we wander the corridors of the walled city, visit rural villages by horse, and explore archaic monasteries. Along the way we depart from the main trail to explore rarely traveled villages and high mountain passes.
