Into the Forbidden Kingdom of Mustang – A Himalayan Road Trip Adventure

I'm in the Tibetan influenced village of Kagbeni, as far as you can go into Upper Mustang without a special and rather costly permit (which I have) and am heading for the fabled "city" of Lo Manthang. Mustang (formerly the Kingdom of Lo) was famously "off limits" until 1992. Lying "behind" the Himalayas on the high Tibetan Plateau, it remained culturally intact and is very different to the rest of Nepal.

Sekong Lake -The best day walk in the Nepal Himalayas

This is our favourite day walk in the entire Nepal Himalayas. When we say "day walk" we mean just that...not a continuous trek, a walk that you start and finish from the same place. This short and straightforward day walk up to sacred Sekong Lake beneath the behemoth of Dhaulagiri (26,795 feet) affords unimaginably breathtaking views across the amazing Kali Gandaki Valley to Annapurna and the Nilgiri peaks as well as Dhaulagiri and its dramatic ice fall.
