Mustang. A Trek to the Kingdom of Lo A bunch of friends decided to explore the remote kingdom of Lo, and climbing the Pisang Peak in Nepal in October 2010. And.. this journal will record our adventures :))

How it all began. Why Mustang?

Why Mustang?

Well.. why not? :)

To be honest, Mustang has been a dream of mine since I heard a photographer and friend talking about his expedition in the region, something he did way back in the seventies. The area was still close to visitors, and he was escorted for the whole trek up to Lo Mantang by police officers. It all sounded very adventurous to me. Borders between Nepal and Tibet are now much less sensitive, but the area opened officially to tourism
only in 1992.

Still, it's a quite remote and therefore less travelled zone, with special permits needed.
Landscapes are wonderful. It hosts important sanctuaries and caves that alone are worth the visit. And: it has a beautiful name.

Enough reasons to pay a visit to the Kingdom, I would say.
