The Upper Mustang trek brings trekkers closer into one of the most isolated and spiritual places in the world. Situated on the north of Annapurna on the Tibetan border at a height of around 4000 meters, the area is topographically and culturally a part of the Tibetan plateau. Its valleys are bone-dry and dry with beautiful rock formations and cliffs. Behind them stand the Himalayan pinnacles, strikingly delightful and snow-topped. A piece of Mustang’s excellence lies in the fact that this district has been visited by very few numbers of travelers, which leaves it as one of only a handful few places on the planet where one can witness untouched Tibetan culture.
In addition, Mustang is popular among the people not just as a place with remarkable scenes that will blow your mind, additionally for its great food and the production of a top-notch apple alcohol. For the daring trekkers and the ones enthused about testing, the tasting of the indigenous butter tea is an extraordinary affair and an opportunity to get close to the way of life of the locality. Advance up the Kali Gandaki River’s banks, seeing the excellence of its stunning blue waters and desert surroundings of the old kingdom of Mustang – a place where culture meets nature.
