​​Upper Mustang is known as the land of mysticism. Historically, Mustang’s strategic location granted the once-independent kingdom control over the ancient trade route between the Himalayas of Nepal and India. This boosted the region’s prosperity and made Mustang a beautiful destination filled with a culture that was rich in vibrancy and very opulent.

Upper Mustang is unlike most other trekking destinations in Nepal. Due to the region’s location in the rain-shadow zone of the Annapurna and the Dhaulagiri Mountain Ranges, Mustang receives very little rainfall, giving it an appearance much like that of the Tibetan Plateau.
