Mustang was only opened to trekkers in 1991. The Department of Immigration issues
only a small number of special permits, to protect the local Tibetan traditions from
outside influence as well as to protect the environment. This semi-autonomous, heavily
Tibetan influenced region was described by Tilman as “fascinatingly ugly country, the
more fascinating for being so little known.” Indeed the trek to Lo Manthang in through an
almost treeless barren landscape, along a steeply undulating rocky trail, from which there
are panoramic views of Nilgiri. Annapurna, Dhaulagiri and range of other soaring are
peaks.

Kagbeni, the starting point of the “Upper Mustang”. Overnight camping at Kagbeni.

Day 2: Kagben-Chele

There is a trail up the east bank of the Kali Gandaki that climbs over many ridges as it
heads north and reaches Tangbe village. The town is a labyrinth of narrow alleys amongst whitewashed houses, fields of buckwheat barley, wheat and apple orchards. The trek now leaves the Kali Gandaki valley and climbs steeply up a rocky gully to Chele at 3030m. The culture changes from the Manangi culture to the Tibetan culture of Lo.

Day 3: Chele- Charang

The climb continues along steep, treeless waterless terrain, along the side of a
spectacular steep canyon to a pass and cairn of rock at 3540m. Then the trail makes a
long gradual descent to some chortens on a ridge, before descending further on a pleasant trail to Samar. The Annapurna, still dominated by Nilgiri, is visible far to the south. The route climbs sharply up and down over a series of high passes, before the final descent to Geling.

Day 4: Geling-Charang

From Geling, the trail climbs gently to the most interesting pass on your trek, Nyi La
and descends beneath blue, grey and red cliffs across the valley to a bridge over the
Tangmar Chu (river) then climbs past what is perhaps the longest and most spectacular mani (prayer wall) in Nepal. Climbing over another pass at 3600m, the route makes a long gentle descent to Charang. The huge five story white Dzong (fort) ad red gompa (Buddhist temple) contains a fascinating array of statues and Thanks as well as many large paintings of seated Buddhas.
