‘Authentic Tibetan culture survives only in exile in a few places like Mustang, which has had long historical and cultural ties with Tibet.’ -HH Dalai Lama

Mustang is a unique corner of Nepal, a genuine Shangri-La. Culturally and geographically a part of Tibet, Mustang has until relatively recently been closed to the world. Tourism is still strictly limited and controlled. (partly thanks to a US$50 per day fee).

Mustang is an unspoilt medieval, Buddhist world set amongst some of the world’s most dramatic mountains, the world’s deepest valley (the Kali Gandaki Gorge, five km deep, lying between the 8000 metre Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges), and a breathtakingly beautiful high altitude desert.
