The Himalayan Upper Mustang Trek Wellness & Culinary Adventure is in an area also known as the Last Forbidden Kingdom.

Mustang lies in the trans-Himalayan region North of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges. It’s an arid, desert-like environment with colorful rock formations.

Your adventure begins with a flight into Jomsom, which lies in the Kali Gandaki valley – the most in-depth ravine in the world. North of Kagbeni is considered the “restricted” Upper Mustang region where Tibetan influence is prevalent. The landscape is dotted with ancient villages with monasteries that are several centuries old.

Trekkers were only allowed to enter this region in 1992, and still, only about 700 trekkers are visiting Mustang a year. This is one of the few remaining enclaves where Tibetan culture remains undisturbed. See for yourself on the Upper Mustang Trek.
