If you are interested in exploring Tibetan Buddhist culture in the hidden Upper Mustang valley, take the Upper Mustang Heli Tour and Trek, which provides a fast platform for you, and you don’t have to worry about your time limit.

North of Kagbeni, generally known as upper Mustang, looks similar to the Tibetan plateau with its yellow and gray rolling hills eroded by violent winds. It lies beyond the Annapurna massif and bordered on three sides by Tibet lies the ancient Kingdom of Lo, better known as Mustang. In the local language, the name Mustang refers to the barren Tibet like region at the north end of the Kali Gandaki, which is known to its inhabitants as Lo. Upper Mustang is the last of the untouched and ageless lands in the Himalaya, and here you will find Lo-Manathang, the only walled city in Nepal.
