The landscape in the Upper Mustang Area is spectacular and trail running in this trail can be a once in a lifetime experience. This trip covers the trail run, and subsequent return to Marpha.
Lo Manthang – the name itself conjures up a sense of mystique, and that is what you get. Trekking in the area, walking in the villages, meeting the inhabitants, savoring the local sights and sounds, is completely magical. Its the thinner air (above 3000 meters), the simple friendly people, the stark mesmerizing moonscape, the deeply pious mystique that emanates from deep-rooted Buddhism, or something, but its there, and you can feel it.
No photographs adequately capture what you see, and no words can really describe what you experienced on this trip. It is something that stays with you forever – your journey and yours alone. Enough said! A trip into Upper Mustang is a trip of a lifetime! You will never forget it. Period.
