Upper Mustang is a popular for horse ride trekking region in Nepal, which lies in the northern central part of Nepal and at the top of the Kaligandaki River where the languages, culture and traditions are alike to those of the Tibetan people. This area is considered as one of the most interesting and charming places in Nepal. The whole area of upper mustang has an isolated and mystical feel to it, enchanting and inspiring visitors to this region. 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.

Upper mustang horse riding trip begins after flight from Pokhara to Jomsom on the upper Kali Gandaki River between Annapurna and Dhaulagiri , our trekking holiday to Mustang allows us to explore a weird and wonderful landscape of eroded conglomerate cliffs, colored by natural earth pigments - reds, yellows, browns and blues. Trekking across passes of up to 4100m, we will also be walking through a succession of picturesque white painted Mustang villages and Tibetan monasteries, set against a backdrop of the distant snow-capped peaks of the Himalayas. We have a day to explore our ultimate destination for excursion in Lo Manthang, a fairy-tale walled city and the capital of Mustang which is quite unlike anything else in Nepal. This enlightening trekking adventure to Mustang in Nepal will surely appeal to those looking to explore a very special part of the Himalaya and finally by flight from Jomsom to Pokhara or continue trek to Ghorepani Poon hill and ending Himalayan adventure trip at Pokhara.
