In some ways, a trek to Upper Mustang is analogous to trekking in Tibet because it is geographically a neighbour of the Tibetan plateau. Here you will experience the lifestyle of actual mountain people. The people in the upper part of the Mustang Region have little to no contact with the remainder of Nepal and have retained their rich cultural heritage. Upper Mustang access remains a highly restricted area. To enter the upper mustang, trekkers need a special trekking permit and must be amid a government-recognized trekking agency. Upper Mustang is one of the simplest options accessible for trekking during the monsoons. During this point, the upper Kali Gandaki valley remains quite dry with only occasional rainfall. The trek is also not particularly difficult, the best height to reach being only 3,800m, but the weather always windy and cold in winter.
