Upper-mustang

Upper Mustang is a remote area in Nepal with highly preserved Tibetan culture.  Due to military unrest in the late 80s, it was not until 1992 that this region was reopened to foreign trekkers.  Tucked and hidden from the outside world, the culture, mostly of Tibetan origin, has been well preserved. The region boasts of unspoilt nature with landscape unlike any other places in Nepal.   Although it lies in the Himalayas, the terrain is a mixture of snow-capped mountains and desert lands.   The people of Mustang strives to preserve the beauty and culture of the place, and hence, trekking in this region is a privilege.  The local government has imposed very strict policies, and expensive fees to limit the entry of the outside world to this secret kingdom in Nepal.  And therefore, this place is not very known to many tourists and very much less travelled.
