    Known as the Last Forbidden Kingdom, Upper Mustang trek is home to interesting Tibetan legends and stories. Hidden behind the Dhaulagiri massif, this beautiful mountain desert is a true gem. Upper Mustang, a part of Tibetan Plateau will certainly amaze you with its wind eroded canyon, vast landscapes, and rich culture.
    The most interesting part of Upper Mustang trek is the Tibetan Buddhist culture. Old monasteries, Mani walls, Chorten, and prayer flags make the environment positive and harmonious throughout, purifying your soul with each step. The ancient caves like Ramchung Cave, Nyphu Cave, and Jhong Sky Cave reveal the ancient Tibetan culture and lifestyles. The walled city of Lo-Manthang bears its own exciting folklores as it was a part of the Tibetan Kingdom of Gungthang. We can see the old palaces and monasteries, and hear the stories even today.
    The road to Upper Mustang Trek is not smooth; it is rather coarse, dry and arid. Nevertheless, the views of Nilgiri, Dhaulagiri, and Annapurna accompanying us throughout the journey will keep us amazed. The vast canyons, the valleys, and the rock formations make up a landscape that is beautiful beyond words. 
    You will have to actually travel to experience its magic and grandeur.     
    The Upper Mustang is dominantly inhabited by Thakali and Tibetan communities, and their white painted houses make the area inevitably attractive to look at. Their rich food, warm hospitality, and liquors please every visitor. The best season for the Upper Mustang trek is during spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November); during monsoon season the road might be blocked whereas the winter nights are quite unbearable. So, indulge yourself in this awesome trip and have a story to brag about for years.
