If you love adventure and want to see the centuries back lifestyle now in present time then Upper Mustang Trek is a suitable journey for you.
The land of Mustang is dry and barren as it receives very less rainfall. The exoticness of this place is beyond any word of description. The land is similar to that of the Tibetan plateaus – dry, barren and arid. The desert like landscape doesn’t possess any kind of vegetation except few plants that grow in dry places. The village of Mustang is alluring and captivating. The high walls with the views of rigid mountains in the background, it nothing less than a picturesque portrait.
Upper Mustang Trek is like a treasure hunt where you travel to the mysterious places. The desert like landscape will haunt you but the hidden caves and artistic monasteries built there is like a reward for your hard work and endurance capacity to spend your time in such a remote place. As you follow your trail, you will come across the Gompas, prayer flags and monasteries which is an evidence to the Tibetan Buddhist culture prevalent in this place. The local people residing in this region are Lobas. These people follow Buddhism and regard themselves as the descendants to Tibet.
Taking about the accessibility to this region, it is the less travelled part of Nepal. The people living here follow a lifestyle that we hear in the books and televisions some centuries back. Therefore, you can analyse how remote and secluded this region is. As the region is dry and barren, it is prone to windy storms in the afternoon and trekking in this region is beyond moderate. You must have good endurance capacity and compromising habit when it comes to food and accommodation. If you chooses, Upper Mustang Trek as your travel package, then you are a true adventure seeker who would like to give a new taste to your travel stories.
