Mustang is an ancient Himalayan Kingdom which lies in the northern central part of Nepal and at the top of the Kaligandaki River. Upper Mustang consists of two distinct regions: the southern part and the northern, where the languages,culture and traditions are similar to those of the Tibetan people. This area is consider as one of the most interesting and picturesque places in Nepal.The entire area has an isolated and mystical feel to it, enchanting and inspiring visitors to this region.

The trek to Lo- Manthang is through high altitude desert country climbing in and out of the huge sided valley of the Kali Gandaki. In places, the gorge, which the Kali Gandaki River runs through is the deepest in the world. This region is full of some of Nepal's oldest Buddhist Monasteries, ancient and isolated villages with quaint white washed houses.

Luri Gompa and Yara/Ghara village is lies East South of Lo-Manthang,Luri Gompa (Cave monastery) sits high above the crumbling landscape like an eagle's nest. It is some of the last cave monasteries in Lo and Tibet. No written record exists for the construction of Luri Gompa. Luri Gompa and some other monasteries are affiliated with the Kagyu sect (one of the sect of Buddhism). The style of painting suggests they were done by Nepalese (Newari) artists working for Tibetan patrons. The cave temple dates from the 13th - 14th century. The central chamber of the Gompa is carved out of the rock creating a domed ceiling on which are painted a series of Mahasiddha, Sakyamuni Buddha and Chenrezig figures etc, which are the true masterpieces. Lining the walls are series of 14th century paintings, which depict India Mahasiddahs. Some are real individual and other mythical.

    Just a few lines of comment on an incredible trekking in the Upper Mustang region in Nepal during 2 weeks in Oct 2012. The journey, led by our Tour leader Man Kumar Tamang, was a memorable experience. The scenery in this region is of the utmost beauty. This trek is exceptional in its kind because of the variety; You come across ancient Tibetan villages, Buddhist arts all in the surroundings of the beautiful Himalayan mountains. We were led by Man Kumar and his team, who are top professionals and have the expertise and experience to give every tourist a wonderful time in their amazing country!!

    I had the chance to meet Man Kumar Tamang in October 2009. At that time he guided our Langtang - Gosainkunde trekking. It turned out to be an unforgettable experience. Not only because of the beauty of Nepal as a country, but also because of the excellent mountain guiding skills of Man Kumar. Driven by the positive experience we decided to come back to Nepal this year 2012 for a trekking in Upper Mustang. Again guided by Man Kumar Tamang and again it turned out to be an experience to cherish for life. Man Kumar not only guided our trip but also took care of the full organization - planning - booking - team selection. He is not only a reliable, highly experienced guide but also a very friendly and honest person. Even in stress situations he manages to stay focussed and does whatever is in his power to come up with the best possible solution. If you consider to travel in Nepal I would highly recommend his services. You will be surprised by the warm & personal approach. Not only by Man Kumar himself but also by the selection of team members that might join you on your trip.
