Overview

Our 17-day journey to Upper Mustang, a hidden place in the Himalayas. It’s not just a trek; it’s an adventure into an old valley, a mix of cultures over time, and an exploration of beautiful landscapes in a forbidden area.

Until 1992, Upper Mustang was off-limits, but now it invites adventurous travelers with ancient monasteries, walled cities, and landscapes that look like they haven’t changed for a long time. While walking through Mustang, you’ll see a blend of Tibetan and Nepali cultures, find unique buildings, and experience the friendly nature of the local people.

This isn’t just a trek; it’s like unfolding stories in the rocks, hearing them in the wind, and feeling them in the special valleys. Starting from Kathmandu, going through the calm town of Pokhara, and into Upper Mustang, every step brings you a new part of this interesting adventure—a story that goes beyond normal and brings you into something really special.
