Colorful prayer flags snap in the wind. Dry hills stretch back into the distance, eventually growing into snowy peaks. Here in the Upper Mustang, time seems to move differently.
Once known as Lo, an ancient forbidden kingdom, this remote region of northwestern Nepal only opened to foreign travelers in 1992. Since then, the place now known as Upper Mustang has retained much of the unique character it developed in isolation.
Delve into a desert world rarely seen with a private guide. Hike past fascinating rock formations and centuries-old temples. Spend days on the trail and nights in lodges or out under the stars.
Even today you need special permits to visit Upper Mustang. It’s wonderfully wild and free of tourists up here.
