Monsoon is quickly approaching in our lovely Nepal. A time to wash away summer dirt, and replenish low flowing streams & rivers is a great time for Nepalis, as life is renewed. Tourism, however, seems to decline as the thought of daily rain detours tourists to drier destinations during this time.
However, what most don’t know, are there are places in Nepal that stay relatively dry during monsoon due to something we call a “rain shadow.” Mountainous areas often have rain shadows that are virtually immune to rainy seasons due to the topography of the land. The forbidden land of Mustang sits in our rain shadow of the Annapurna massif & Dhaulagiri.
Mustang means “fertile land” in Tibetan, and lives up to its name not only in sustenance, but also in substance of life & culture. A strong Tibetan feel can be felt here, but the people are very proud to be from the ancient once-Kingdom of Lo. Although the monarchy was dissolved along with the Nepali monarchy in 2008, the people here still hold their King in high regard.
During this 15 day/16 night trek you will experience not only an almost unknown society, but have views of mostly untouched terrain. You will come across numerous ancient chortens—hand painted & carved, Mani walls, prayer wheels, old castle ruins, rolling hills, mountains, streams, and rivers. The people you encounter along the way are sure to touch your heart forever.
So, if you’re itching to take a trek and you’re only free time falls during monsoon—have no fear! Mustang is here!
