Trek to Upper Mustang

Upper Mustang lies north of the two 8,000 meter peaks Annapurna and Dhaulagiri. The arid place with snow-capped mountains and barren hills reaches deep inside the vast Tibetan plateau. Cold winds sweep through narrow canyons and over plains. Erosion has left its marks in bizarre rock formations. It takes some effort to discover the scenic and cultural beauties and mysteries of this area.  
Our plan is to follow the Kali Gandaki from Jomsom northwards for three days, via Kagbeni valley, Chaile, Ghami then taking the west route to the capital Lo Manthang and from there back to Jomsom over the holy site Muktinath to finally fly back to Pokhara.
