A Visual Journey To Upper Mustang

Upper Mustang Trek, without a second thought, is the most unique trekking trail up in the Trans-Himalayan Region of Nepal. It is a whole different land which feeds you with lustful eyegasmic perks beyond imagination. The trekking route basically follows the ancient Salt trade route that used to be most popular trade route, centuries back. It leads you to the last forbidden kingdom of Lo-Manthang, where the secludedness from outside world up until a few decades back, has contributed to preserving the authenticity and culture. Upper Mustang is very rich in culture, landscapes, ancient cave complex, monasteries and amusing tales of history, that can leave one speechless. The vastness yet being unexplored to the fullest. The trekking trail serves with beautiful barren landscapes, red cliffs, caves, chortens, buckwheat fields, hospitable people in small village settlements, horses, mountains left far behind in the south.
Without much a say, let us take a visual ride of the trails of Upper Mustang.
The journey to Upper Mustang starts from Jomsom through Kagbeni, and then crossing the colossal Kaligandaki river, leaving Chhuksang behind. Let’s have a look.
