Upper Mustang Adventure
Lho Manthang, the ancient Buddhist Kingdom
The Upper Mustang unveils the hidden world of Mustang – the Legendary Buddhist Kingdom in the hidden valley amidst Himalayas bordering Tibet.
Among several scattered Himalayan community, Lho- Manthang, situated at the elevation of 3840m, is one of the major attraction of this trip.
The region remained restricted to the tourist until 1991, an still requires a special permit for the visit. The whitewashed settlements, surrounded by fields of barley, filled with several impressive small monasteries and colorful prayer flags reflecting the abiding Buddhist culture of the village can be accessed only after passing through incredibly fierce wind and mystical barren landscape.
Jhong cave in Upper Mustang is an outstanding cave with 5 story high built into a cliff. There are more than 40 different rooms inside the cave. To enter this cave trekkers have to climb up steep stairs. Inside the cave there are many ladders to go from one floor to another. From the window of Jhong Cave you can see the stunning landscape of Chhoser valley.
