An Upper Mustang trek is same as to trekking in Tibet, as in nature it is a division of the Tibetan highland . The area of Mustang was until 1950, a disconnect kingdom within boundaries of Nepal .
The remote and half-hidden cave murals of Kochok Ling make up one of the most exciting excursions from Lo Manthang. First you need to walk or drive up a side valley north of Lo Manthang, climb a ridge, then pick your way through this fantastically eroded series of gullies... 1/4 #naturallynepal#nepalnow#visitnepal2020#uppermustang
Деревня Прок располагается в стороне от основого трека вокруг Манаслу 🏔 Дорога сюда трудна, карабкается круто вверх, но очень живописна 🏡 Подавляющее большинство трекеров экономит силы, и идут из Бихи прямо, нижней тропой и многое теряют ⛺️ The village of Prok is located away from the main trail around Manaslu 🏔 The road here is difficult, climbs steeply up, but very picturesque 🏡 The vast majority of trekkers save power, and go from Bihi straight, the lower path and lose a lot ☺
Verso Regno di Lo Matang region Upper Mustang Nepal.
Anche qui la modernità è arrivata con una via di comunicazione che attraversa tutta le regione fino al confine cinese.
Ma se si sceglie di visitare questo luogo entrando come un tempo con andare lento, i cavalli che portano tende e il necessario per un trekking di diverse settimane è un'esperienza che nella vita sarà ricordata..memorie
Towards Kingdom of Lo Matang region Upper Mustang Nepal.
Here too, modernity has arrived with a communication route that crosses the entire region to the Chinese border.
But if you choose to visit this place by entering as a time with going slow, the horses that bring tents and the necessary for a trek of several weeks is an experience that in life will be remembered
Three of our favourite directors show us what they can do this week.. The Coen Brothers with 'Burn After Reading' and 'The Big Lebowski', Wes Anderson with 'Rushmore' and we re-visit Quentin Tarantino's first ever screenplay in 'True Romance'. It's going to be a good few days!
Bar and kitchen open from 6pm Mon-Wed, and 5pm Thurs-Sun, and as always there are blankets and hot drinks to keep you warm throughout the evening.
See you soon!
Pictured here are the rooftops of Lo Manthang, the capital of Mustang and ancestral seat of the kings of Mustang. The core is a compact walled inner town that holds three stunning 15th-century monasteries and some of the most beautiful Buddhist murals in the Tibetan world. #naturallynepal#nepalnow#visitnepal2020#uppermustang
Лангтанг - удивительно красивый трек с уникальным сочетанием ландшафтов: высокогорные пейзажи, ледяные бирюзовые озера, рододендроновые рощи, заросли папоротников, экзотические птицы, вечные снежники. Тут богатая тибетская культура и самобытный уклад жизни коренных народностей гурунги и таманги 🏔🇳🇵 Langtang is an amazingly beautiful track with a unique combination of scenery: alpine landscapes, icy turquoise lakes, rhododendron groves, ferns, exotic birds, eternal snowfields. There is a rich Tibetan culture and distinctive way of life of indigenous peoples of Gurungs and Tamangs 🏔🇳🇵
Upper Mustang is peppered with hundreds of man-made caves. Possibly early dwellings, places of refuge, Buddhist retreats or burial sites for the dead, many are painted with murals, mandalas and Buddha images. This little-visited cave sits above the village of Choser, a couple of hours' walk north of Lo Manthang. The village also boasts a four-storey cave complex, two small monasteries and a couple of comfortable family-run guesthouses. Stay the night here and you’ll have these enigmatic sites all to yourself - a real treat. #naturallynepal#nepalnow#visitnepal2020#uppermustang

Ghemi is one of Mustang’s most charming villages, full of shrines, mani walls and chortens, along with several excellent guesthouses. The autumn colours of the Ghemi Khola offer a much-needed splash of colour in the arid khaki landscape here, while caves pepper the eroded cliff face above. #naturallynepal#nepalnow#visitnepal2020#uppermustang

For the next week or so I'll be posting photos from my recent trek through upper Mustang in Nepal. One of the most fascinating enclaves of Tibetan Himalayan culture, upper Mustang is changing fast, with new roads linking it north to Tibet/China and south to the rest of Nepal. In this picture chortens (stupas) mark a pilgrimage spot connected to Buddhist saint Guru Rinpoche along the trail between Ghemi and Drakmar. #naturallynepal l #nepalnow#visitnepal2020#uppermustang

Image by @valles.marineris "Chosar (and the upper Mustang all together), to me, is one of the most beautiful places of Nepal. It has plenty to offer, from the beauty of Himalayas to the desert vegetation, from the grazing horses, sheeps to the Himalayan yaks, from the feelings of being on Tibetan plateau to the true Tibetan traditions, and from the numerous ancient caves, a beautiful Gumba (monastery) to the mind boggling Shija Jhong Cave.
Jhong Cave is a cave complex 5 stories high and has more than 40 rooms. It is said to be about 2500 years old and have been inhabited at different times.
Though the cave was empty and dark, I managed to get to the 3rd floor from where the picture was taken through the cave window." #UpperMustang
