The upper Mustang is dominated by an endless expanse of yellow and grey rolling hills made smooth by the wind. We traverse this lonely landscape on horseback via several passes (The highest being the Nyi-La at 3990m), camping in villages nestled in their green irrigated oasis until we reach the spectacular walled town of Lo-Monthang. Visually, this is an extraordinary place and home of the Mustang Raja (King) as well as some beautiful temples and monasteries. The people of Upper Mustang are always curious about new arrivals and we can expect children, with scary wind blown hair and apple red cheeks, will gather to confront the spectacle of foreign visitors. The abrasive lifestyle required to survive is easily evident here.

Our trip will initiate in Kathmandu, the colourful capital of Nepal. On the next day we fly or drive to the picturesque town of Pokhara. After an evening discovering the pleasures of Pokhara we fly to the high village of Jomsom beneath the 8000m massifs of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri. From here we trek to the Lo-Manthang.

We leave the tourist route here and foot trek or ride on horseback through lower Mustang where spectacularly fluted cliffs of red hues overlook the Kali Gandaki River. The Kali Gandarki flows from the high plains of Tibet through Mustang into Nepal before flowing into India. After taking time to explore the area and interact with its small population we return to Jomsom and fly again to Pokhara and Kathmandu.
