I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and to everyone who works at The Mountain Company for enabling us to have such an amazing and unforgettable trek to Everest Base Camp.
Joanna Stray (UK) | Everest Base Camp, Nepal
This is an adventurous trek from Naar village through a very remote region following the Great Himalaya Trail to the semi-independent Kingdom of Upper Mustang near the Tibet border.
Our leader Adrian Summers successfully trekked Naar to Mustang GHT over Teri La in 2013 and has posted his superb photos in a slideshow online on Adobe Spark at Back Road to Mustang
After leaving the Annapurna Circuit at Chame we walk to the isolated village of Nar then from there crossing the rarely travelled Teri La pass (5,595m) to enter Upper Mustang.
The valleys of Naar and Upper Mustang are arid and dry with colourful rock formations containing many cave dwellings high up in the cliffs. The first trekking parties were allowed into Upper Mustang in 1992 and there are still few people visiting Upper Mustang as a result it is one of the few places left where one can see undisturbed Tibetan culture.
