Have you ever dreamt of visiting one of the last hidden kingdoms – a Shangri La in the Himalayas? Upper Mustang was a separate kingdom until 2008 and opened to foreigners in only 1992 and still retains its unique Tibetan culture bred over millennia. The high desert rain shadow of Himalayas receives very little rainfall making this region dry and parched, similar to the bordering Tibetan Plateau. With an amazing culture, stark and stunning landscape, nomadic communities and more to experience, this trek will offer you the rare privilege to visit the exotic land beyond the Himalayas.

Experience the Complete Nepal on this Small Group Tour, fully escorted within Nepal by a western tour leader, and a full time Nepalese Tour Guide, we also have the service of local porters (2 per trekker for the trek) and guides for various activities.
