MUSTANG TREKKING

 

Mustang Trekking... Experiencing the desolate landscapes...

Desolate landscapes and lavishly adorned monasteries, great rivers and fields created through the painstaking labour of humans over time, with the highland that extends endlessly northward and the pristine peaks of Annapurna and of the Nilgiri, which mark the horizon to the South, there are few places in the length of the great chain that cast anything like the spell of Mustang.

This trip gives you the opportunity to go where few have been before. Most of the trek keeps to arid, high deserts inhabited mostly by people of Tibetan stock. The men folk are either traders or farmers while the women mostly tend the fields. Along with insights into the everyday lives of the people of "Lo" you will have the opportunity to witness their vibrant culture and also a chance to get a look at Lama Buddhism little changed by time.

Lo Manthang - The Capital of Mustang

Lo Manthang was attached to Tibet in the 14th century, although it retained its identity as an autonomous dynasty for the centuries - is a walled city where people still remain predominantly Tibetan. Annexed by Nepal in 17th century, but intact by the outside world or the Chinese Cultural revolution, 14th century monasteries still remain to preserve this magnificent Trans Himalayan kingdom. In this wild lunar landscape of unreal color and beauty, ruggedly carved mountains reach up to deep blue skies, while icy peaks glimmer majestically to the south.

ANNAPURNA SANCTUARY TREKKING - Trek to the Base Camp of Massif Annapurnas for 360° view 
 

There is a good mix of high mountains and Himalayan culture on this trek. The Annapurna Himal lies between the Kali Gandaki and Marsyangdi river valley, forming a solid, mountain bastion. As rhododendron forests give way to bamboo groves, which in turn vanish into the high, desert landscapes, people of Aryan stock give way to those of Mongoloid stock and the dominant religion changes from Hinduism in the lower reaches to Buddhism higher up.
