Nepal Mystical Mustang Trek
Kathmandu, Nepal to Kathmandu, Nepal
Tucked behind the legendary Himalayan peaks of Dhaulagiri and Annapurna, the forbidden kingdom of Lo was isolated for centuries. This region of Nepal-now called Mustang-is the off-the-beaten-track getaway of your dreams. Our trek journeys through this remote land, where vast monasteries stand guard over pocket-sized villages and every ridge offers another arresting vista. With two days in the walled city of Lo Manthang, nearly untouched since the 14th century, you'll be one of the few to discover this magnificent, well-preserved treasure. Note: Due to ongoing construction in Upper Mustang, one day of the trek may require a short Jeep ride.

There is a vestibule at the front of the tent where you can store your hiking boots and trekking poles. We also provide a 6 foot 1 inch long and 2 feet 1 inch wide, fabric covered foam sleeping pad. We will also set up a toilet tent with toilet seat in each of our camps.
Om's Home is a simple traditional-style Nepalese inn, located in the heart of Jomsom and surrounded by the soaring peaks of Nilgiri and Dhaulagiri.

The inn's restaurant serves fresh Tibetan bread and homemade soups, and there are plenty of charming areas to lounge in (Wi-Fi is available in the lobby).Day: 12, duration: 2
