Mustang - Manthang, Yara Ghara and Luri

 

Mustang – The Kingdom of Lo, aka the “The forbidden Kingdom”, is located at the border with Tibet. A Mustang trek with low affluence due to a very restricted access. An altitude accessible to anybody, on average between 2500 and 3500m (With a top altitude of 4100m).

This former Nepali independent kingdom has amazing landscapes, culture and traditions. Lo Mantang, the fortified capital, is the living memory of an ancient era. Slender edge rocks, verdurous oasis on Kali Gandaki’s upper part, Bhrikuti Peak’s snowed summits … one of the uncommon Nepali’s region that can also be visited during summer.
