Upper Mustang Jeep Tour

0 Reviews

Welcome to an extraordinary journey into the heart of a hidden gem nestled amidst the deserted mountains, and adjacent to the Tibetan plateau. Nepal Holiday Organizer is thrilled to present the Upper Mustang Jeep Tour 12 Days in Mustang Region, referred to as the 'Forbidden Kingdom.'

This mystical region was inaccessible to outsiders until 1992, rendering it a secluded and well-preserved sanctuary of nature and culture.

The isolation of Upper Mustang has worked like a time capsule, preserving the rich tapestry of Tibetan culture and traditions. The majority of its inhabitants still converse in their native Tibetan tongue.

The landscapes mirror the Tibetan valleys, with barren hills painted in shades of beige. As you journey through this realm, you'll encounter solitary houses and vibrant Buddhist prayer flags fluttering in the wind, creating a surreal vista that encapsulates the essence of Lo Manthang.

Entering the ancient city of Lo Manthang is akin to stepping into a bygone era. Centuries-old caves, ancient monasteries, labyrinthine alleyways, and revered stupas narrate a story filled with enigma and vibrant culture.

12 Days Tour:

Our Upper Mustang Jeep Tour seamlessly transports you to Lo Manthang, traversing breathtaking trans-Himalayan landscapes and immersing you in the unique Tibetan lifestyle. With the recent extension of a dirt road, what was once only accessible on foot is now a luxurious and comfortable journey to the top.

This tour is tailor-made for travelers who wish to explore Upper Mustang but have limited time at their disposal. Not only does it save you precious time, but it also allows you to bask in the beauty of the Forbidden Kingdom in absolute comfort and serenity.
