The Buddhist Caves in Upper Mustang offer a truly unique trekking experience in a remote area of Nepal, far away from the beaten path. The trek takes you into the hidden Buddhist kingdom of Upper Mustang and ventures deep into the world of 'sky-caves', including the famous Luri Gompa and Tashi Kabum, which are adorned with some of the most exquisite murals of the Tibetan Buddhist world and dating back to antiquity.
Nepal 17-Day Tours & Itineraries
More time means you can enjoy a more immersive holiday experience in Nepal. 17 days, for example, is enough to make the Upper Mustang Trek, in north of the country. On this excursion you’ll not only pass by a network of thousands of caves carved into mountain walls—the “sky caves”—but you’ll also meet the inhabitants of the Lost Kingdom of Mustang, a settlement that harkens back to a traditional way of Tibetan life. Or you could go cross country trekking through the Langtang Valley, north of Kathmandu, to sacred Gosaikunda Lake and the indigenous villages of Helambu.
