Mustang - New, exciting road adventures in the "Forbidden" Kingdom launched

Unique and Innovative Tours exploring the fabled, ancient lands beyond the Himalayas to Lo Manthang
Aug. 29, 2023 - PRLog -- Exclusive custom Nepal tour and trek operator Snow Cat Travel has launched a brand new range of overland tours to explore the rarely visited, restricted access area of the former "Forbidden" Kingdom of Mustang in Nepal.

For centuries Mustang was "off limits" to visitors and it's only as recent as 1992 that tourists were allowed to enter the high altitude, wilderness lands that lie on the "roof the world". Even now a special permit is required to enter Mustang.

As a result Mustang and its royal capital, the ancient "walled city" of Lo Manthang has near mythical status and has long captured the romantic imagination of intrepid travellers.

But, until recently to reach Lo Manthang required many days of arduous trekking at relentless high altitude with only meagre accommodation or wild camping the only options available.

Nowadays Mustang and Lo Manthang can be reached by road and be explored by those who could once only dream of visiting, but were deterred by the physical challenges of hiking.

As well as welcoming, cosy, family run guest houses providing the creature comforts of private en suite bedrooms, there's even a couple of upmarket boutique heritage hotels in Mustang too.

Manager of Snow Cat Travel, Mark Knowles, explains, "We wanted our clients to be able to experience Mustang off the beaten track as much as possible. So, we sought the expertise of the people who know Mustang best, the local people and with the additional input of our specialist Mustang guides too. As a result we've created a series of unique, customisable tours that visit almost medieval traditional villages, remote ancient monasteries and explore mysterious sky caves. You can walk along trails that are rarely used and venture into some really wild landscapes on a day hike as well as meet the friendly people of Mustang themselves to appreciate their unique culture and lifestyle. But, most of all we wanted our clients to be able to enjoy a Mustang experience their way."

"At certain times of year you might even be able to visit a nomadic tribe that make the perilous journey across the Himalayas from the isolated Dolpo region too", Mark added.
