Mustang is hidden Shangri-La of Nepalese Himalayas that was restricted until 1992 following the Tibetan resistant movement that vastly used territory of Mustang. Nestled among the high Himalayan peaks, the devout Buddhist kingdom of Mustang always accepted to be vassal of others to avoid violence. Artifacts and paintings found in caves carved out on the cliffs, fort and palace ruins and its antique monasteries make Mustang’s history mysterious. Undisturbed Himalayan Buddhism, intact Tibetan culture and alpine landscape make it ‘The lost Tibetan Kingdom’, politically in Nepal. 
Mustang trekking is about discovering the Tibet outside of Tibet. Our trek strats with one of the most spectacular flight through the Kaligandaki valley wedged between Annapurna and Dhaulagiri range. The trail follows trans-Himalayan salt trading route through deep gorges to the walled city of Lo. We come across charming villages, fort ruins and occult monasteries dating back to as early as 8th century. The honeycomb caves hewn in the cliff however dates back to 3,000 years of even older. We will visit some of the cave settlements, meditaion caves, palaces and the walled city of Lo before trekking back to Jomsom from where we will fly back.
