Trailing Upper Mustang -Adventure/Cultural Trek

6,442 views

Published on

Upper Mustang Trek (http://bit.ly/upper-mustang) assimilates the adventure of hiking on the rugged paths and cultural immersion and learning of the greater Himalaya region of Mustang. A former independent kingdom, Upper Mustang is a restricted area in Nepal and getting a permit to enter the region can found to be bit expensive and rare.

The capital of Upper Mustang, Lo Manthang, is a center of ancient Tibetan art and culture. The greater inhabitants of Upper Mustang still do follow their former monarch "Raja Jigme Dorje Palabar Bista."

  • You came along just at the right time for me Ben. Recently retired and got my pension only to find out my savings were earning nothing. Lets just say a "small" investment in you has been the difference between scraping by each week and spoiling 5 grand kids. Well worth the investment and glad to have met you. ➤➤ http://t.cn/A6vAMkWt

  6. 6. “Stupa (Chorten) is an important religious monument in Tibetan culture expressing significant religious symbolism and presenting Buddha’s physical presence.

  10. 10. “Mustang’s status as a kingdom ended on October 7, 2008 when its suzerain Kingdom of Nepal became a republic. The influence of the outside world, especially China, is growing and contributing to rapid change in the lives of the people in the region.
  11. 11. Around 800 tourists visit Upper Mustang every year. The higher permit cost and strict regulations makes it less accessible. The permits can only be ob- tained from a registered trekking agency in Nepal. PERMIT COST = $500 (Valid for 10 Days) Additional Day = $50
  12. 12. A Living Room inside a Tea-house in Mustang Mustang was famed as a Camping trail, but now, with the establishment of lodges, Tea-house trekking is pos- sible and enjoyed by most of the trekkers in the region. Tea-house trek saves Cost!
  13. 13. “Rain-shadow ~ A rain shadow is a dry area on the lee side of a mountainous area (away from the wind). The mountains block the passage of rain-producing weather systems and cast a “shadow” of dryness behind them. Upper Mustang falls under Rain shadow areas of Nepal, along with Upper Dolpo and Jomsom. Because of the lack of rainfall in the most of the region, the land becomes dry and arid, which remains hot during the day and cold during the night, resembling Gobi desert in China/Mongolia.
  14. 14. “Tiji comes from the word “ten che” meaning the hope of Buddha Dharma prevailing in all worlds and is effectively a spring renewal festival. Tiji Festival The Tiji festival is a three-day ritual known as “The chasing of the Demons,” that centers on the Tiji myth, celebrated every year on May.
  15. 15. “We found ourselves in the midst of a festival (Tiji Festival) in which over a thousand men, women and children were taking part [...] The women looked superb in hand- woven sleeveless Chubas (a bath-robe style dress made of thick wool) over bright, loose silk blouses. Around their wastbands were tucked two aprons, a short one that hung down in front, the other caught in the belt and hanging down behind to the ground [...] Many women were literally smothered with ornaments of silver and precious stones necklaces of bright orange corralline stones alternating with turquoises ivory-white bracelets made of truncated conch shell. ~Michel Peissei
