MUSTANG, the ancient Himalayan kingdom
The dream of every trekkers who has already hiked the Himalayan trails. This ancient himalayan kingdom opened to trekkers in 1992. Located on the Tibetan plateau to the North of the Dhaulagiri and the Annapurnas the region is barely affected by the monsoon.
GST has strong links with the region. Long before the opening in 1992 we had already trekked in the area by foot and horse and later on pioneered several itineraries.
Up to recently trekking in Mustang could only be done by camping in tents, however GST collaborated with ICIMOD to help develop homestays and lodges so that the villagers benefitted directly from the trekkers.
To this day we remodel our itineraires to include excursions like the CHungsi cave, Drakmar’s crest, Lo Gekar , the Choser valley and the hidden stupa of Lori.
Following Paulo Grobel we organised high altitude treks between the Nar valley and Mustang with expeditions close to the tibetan border.
