Trip Overview

Trip Overview

If we think that the desert constitutes only of yellow hot sand whose ripples keep on changing in the direction of the wind, then we are completely wrong when we will come across beautiful rivers and breath-taking mountains in the desert of Upper Mustang.

As we walk on feet deeper into this desert, we reach the remotest and isolated places of the world, where the people still follow old traditions, where the people still people look happy, and where the people still live in stone houses These places have become a different place in this way, and this place is not only their home but also the driest windiest place of the world. Please contact us for the final trip quotation.
