Upper Mustang trekking is located at north of Annapurna, which begains from Kakbeni. We approach Lo-Manthang on the west side of the Kali Gandaki and descend on the less visited east side of this valley. The valleys are arid and dry with colourful rock formations containing many cave dwellings high up in the cliffs. The first parties were there allowed into Upper Mustang in 1992 and there are still very few trekkers visiting Upper mustang as a result it one of the few palces left where one can see undisturbed Tibetan culture.

Mustang is a remote semi- independent Tibetan Kingdom with a walled capital Lo-Manthang. Upper mustang was once part of Tibet and was used by the salt caravans crossing the Himalaya into Nepal. In 1960's Mustang was a strong hold for Tibetan Khamba guerrillas fighting the occupying Chinese forces. CIA supported these fighters and secretly trainned some of them in USA.

Make an adventure starting from world's deepest gorge Kaligandaki region into world's highest region of Lo-Manthang valley that passes through an almost downhill and Panaromic view of Annapurna, Nilgirim Dhaulagiri, Machhapuchhre and other peaks. Great Vision provides upper mustag itinerary and Mustang route.
