19 Days of Travel - 11 Days of Trekking - 04 Flights Within Nepal

This is a journey/expedition through the ancient kingdom of Upper Mustang, a sum of settlements on the border between Nepal and Tibet, one of the last winds of preservation of Tibetan ancestral culture in the world.

To visit this kingdom, at almost 4 thousand meters of altitude in the Himalayan mountain range, is like entering an ancient book of mythical tales and legends, to talk with its characters.

The region is considered by scholars and religious leaders, Buddhists and Hindus, as the most sacred of Nepal. A valley that enchants not only by the peculiarities and beauty of its landscapes, but also by the cultural and social learning it provides. The villages of Mustang still follow, faithfully, traditions such as the marriage of a woman with several men.

In medicine, the belief that illnesses are related to the influences of evil spirits is preserved. Transiting through this culture brings the possibility of relativizing the truth, our beliefs and the way we face life.

This is a journey for all those who are interested in a journey that allows not only the discovery of a new landscape, but the emergence of a new look.

The itinerary thrills!

A long 11-day trekking circuit, surrounded by mountains of all kinds of colors and formations, which includes: passing through barley fields, Buddhist chortens adorned with prayer flags, passing through rivers, bridges, glaciers, the oldest Buddhist monasteries of the Himalayas, until reaching the capital of the kingdom, 'the walled city of lo'.

Observing and taking care of your own body, which is indispensable in any walk, becomes even more relevant when it comes to a long trekking of 11 days through this immense, arid and wonderful area of the Himalayan mountain range.

Naturally, the moments of silence extend, opening space for listening to oneself, and for possible 'insights'. At the same time, the sensation of effort, concentration, balance and rhythm of the steps, guided by breath and heartbeat, make this journey a meditation in itself.

A journey surrounded by mountains of over 7 thousand meters, with all the safety and lightness of being in a group produced, operated and accompanied by the trip to grow, which brings the necessary support in this journey internally solitary.

About Mustang:

Around the capital Lo Manthang, a wall of more than 6 meters high was built, as protection of the kingdom. Nowadays, the wall symbolically protects a millenary culture from the influence of the modern world.

Despite being located in Nepalese lands, Mustang became a refuge for Tibetans who escaped the Chinese invasion in 1950.

All expeditions to the region must be authorized in advance by the Nepalese government. casual tourists do not enter the kingdom.

    ‘’ Gente, passando pra dizer que esses dias nepaleses seguem reverberando em mim e acredito que reverberará para sempre…

    Como o mundo é grande, complexo e lindo.

    Caminhar cercado pelas maiores montanhas do mundo, sem pressa e aprendendo a respeitar meu ritmo, mostrou como somos pequenos e grandes ao mesmo tempo…. ficou mais fácil respirar, depois da viagem…

    Muito grata pela atenção de vocês, de maneira tão natural, em cada passo - da ansiedade e organização na pré viagem, até a despedida no aeroporto… om mani padme hum :)"
