Forbidden Kingdom ( 18 Days / 17 Nights )
 
Nifug Gumpa ,Lo- manthang

The land of "Lo". Remote and forbidden to travellers for centuries has now been open to trekkers for some time.

Your journey begins with a late afternoon flight to Pokhara followed, the next morning, by a flight to Jomosom.  From here the trail leads along the left bank of the Kali Gandaki river through the villages of Kagbeni, Chusang, Samochin and Charang to the walled capital of Mustang - Lomanthan.  The return is mostly via the same route, except for the detour to Muktinath which is important pilgrimage site for both the Hindus and the Buddhists.

This trip gives you the opportunity to go where few hadbeen before. Most of the trek keeps to arid, high deserts inhabited mostly by people of Tibetan stock.  The menfolk are either traders or farmers while the women mostly tend the fields.

Along with insights into the everyday lives of the people of "Lo" you will have the opportunity to witness their vibrant culture and also a chance to get a look at Lamaist Buddhism little changed by time.

The road to Jomosom from Beni is now being extended to Lomanthan and you may be passed by the occasional motorcycle, tractor or four wheel drive ferrying people, goods and travelers to or from Lomanthang along the trail which is only passable by vehicles at certain times of the year.
