Your journey to the medieval settlement of Upper Mustang on the trans-Himalayan desert will always be full of surprises. You will spot ancient caves, centuries-old monasteries, archaeological sites and mystical holes in the walls of the hills. Not to forget, you will be savouring local delicacies over the different stops as well. Don’t forget to taste nationally-renowned apple, apple pie and apple wines of Mustang.
