Lo-Manthang Trek

Mustang formerly Kingdom of Lo, is a remote and isolated region of the Nepalese Himalayas. The Upper Mustang was a restricted demilitarized area until 1992 which makes it one of the most preserved regions in the world, with a majority of the population still speaking traditional Tibetan languages. Tibetan culture has been preserved by the relative isolation of the region from the outside world. Lo-Manthang Trek is more fascinating to observe the multiple colored flowers, lands with bushes and the snow covered peaks in the background of the wonderful landscape. Along the Lo-Manthang Trek trail, we can see the glorious panorama of the mountain ranges including Dhaulagiri (8167m), Annapurna I (8091m), Manaslu range (8,163m). Trek to the upper mustang and fly back to the Pokhara by Helicopter.
