The last king of Mustang still has his home in the prehistoric capital known as Lho Mathang. Upper Mustang is highly restricted. To enter Upper Mustang, that is to travel supplementary north of Kagbeni trekkers need a special trekking permit and must be accompanied by a government appointed official. Upper Mustang, being in the Himalayan rain shadow, is one of the regions in the country suitable for trekking even during the monsoons. During this time, the upper Kali Ghandaki valley is still quite dry with only occasional rainfall.
To trek in Upper Mustang is an atypical privilege. Here you will experience a way of life of true mountain people, who used for hundreds of years, had very little contact with the rest of Nepal and retained their rich cultural heritage. Until recent times their king was officially recognized by the Government of Nepal.
