Upper Mustang Trek

Upper Mustang TrekUpper Mustang trek unseal the once Forbidden historical Kingdom of Mustang, slipped away from the rest of the world, situated just north of the main Himalayan range of Nepal. Mustang, a land where the soul of the man is still measured to be as real as the feet he walks on a land said to be "barren as a dead deer" but where loveliness and gladness flourish is spite of hardship, was a part of the Tibetan Kingdom of Gungthang until 1830. The wall city of Lo Monthang, informal capital of Mustang still remnants a kingdom within a kingdom. The early history to Lo Monthang is overstated in myth and legend rather than the recorded fact. Mustang has preserved its status as a separate principality until 1951. The king of Mustang still holds his title and he has been given the rank of Colonel in the Nepal army.
 
Mustang has long been isolated from the outside world (and only opened to trekking groups since 1992!). As you make your way through this isolated land, you’ll pass brilliantly painted chortens (Buddhist shrines) and tiny villages protected by massive monasteries. Vistas include unusual and eye-catching views of the snow-covered Himalaya to the south, and barren high plateaus, deep canyons, and an ocean of exposed hills the colors of a desert sunset to the north. Once at the walled capital city of Lo Manthang, you’ll soak up a great sense of timelessness and appreciation for an primeval culture as you discover the ruins of old forts, monasteries rich in art and history, and caves replete with magnificent religious statues.
 
Destination Himalaya Treks frequently organized trek to the Himalayan Kingdom of Upper Mustang targeting “TIJI” festival a three days long ceremony known as" The chasing of the Demons", the most significant festival of the regionDuring the festival  monks dressed in elaborate costumes and masks perform dances and rituals that are supposed to take away evil spirits. Dressed in their finery, people from all over Mustang gather in Lo Monthang to celebrate the Tiji festival.
