Upper Mustang trek takes you to the hidden world of the old Buddhist kingdom of Mustang (also called Lo), near to Tibet border. Until 1992, the area was forbidden to visit for foreigners. Not only culture, also landscape is very much related to Tibet. Mustang lies in the rain shadow of Dhaulagiri and you walk in a complete desolate landscape, surrounded by rocks in all kinds of colours and bizarre formations. Trek follows salt caravan trade route between Mustang and Tibet of old age. We reach Lo Manthang (capital of Upper Mustang), is a medieval town, surrounded by a huge town wall. You can find the palace of the king, a huge 4 story high building. When the king is at home, you can even pay him a visit sometime. From Lo La pass (3950 m) we see town shimmering in distance in the barren landscape.
