Upper Mustang Trekking - Beautiful trekking trail in Nepal
Isolated, untouched and very farther from the modern crowd, this is how Upper Mustang looks like. Annexed to the Nepalese territory on after 18th century, Upper Mustang, we call it as The Last Forbidden Kingdom. Before being a Nepalese territory, it used to be a part of Tibetan empire due to which this region is highly influenced by the Tibetan culture and language. Still hidden and forbidden from the outer world, Upper Mustang is a remote district in the Western part of Nepal. This region is located in the Dhaulagiri region surrounded by high rocks and cliffs from most of the sides. Inhabited with only about 14,981 populations, this region is a homeland to Thakalis, Gurungs and primarily Tibetan mainly. And this region is a good source to know more about the Buddhist religion. The trial to Upper Mustang follows ancient salt caravan route which once used to be a major trade route to Tibet.
As we already mentioned, it is isolated and forbidden region, the beauties and nature here are fresh and unspoiled. To be honest, Upper Mustang is not lesser than a paradise. Exploring the virgin lands with the enchanting views all around your eyes are what make it worth visiting.
