Upper Mustang stands as a living repository of ancient Tibetan traditions unfazed by external influences, the culture here has endured for centuries, preserving rituals, customs, and artistic expressions in their purest forms. The region's remoteness and challenging topography have acted as a shield, keeping it untouched by mass tourism and making it a secluded haven for those in pursuit of an off-the-beaten-path adventure.
Embarking on our trek, we commence our journey from Jomsom, a place that introduces us to the unique charm of the region. Here, mud and stone houses, a red-colored gompa, and historical ruins paint the backdrop of our exploration. As we travel through this remote land, we encounter prehistoric cave dwellings and the remnants of scattered castles, each echoing the tales of a bygone era.
The path unfolds with steep ascents and vast plateaus, presenting both challenges and breathtaking landscapes. En route, we visit a lot of unique destinations namely the revered Luri Gompa, a sacred sanctuary resonating with ancient spirituality. Continuing our odyssey, the path leads us to Tashi Kabum, adorned with some of the most impeccably preserved murals in the Tibetan Buddhist world.
Traversing through isolated villages, our route predominantly follows the course of the Kali Gandaki riverbed, passing through elevated paths above river and through impressively sculpted gorges. The culmination of this awe-inspiring trek awaits in Lo Manthang, where the walled city reveals a panorama that encapsulates the Mustang region's unique cultural and historical significance.
Lo Manthang reveals intriguing cave monasteries, and a trek to Yara includes visits to Gara village and the ancient Luri Gompa cave monastery. The return route leads through Tsarang, Sangmoche, and Tangbe, offering a blend of historical exploration and scenic landscapes. The trek concludes with a flight from Jomsom to Pokhara and then to Kathmandu.
