Helicopter Mustang

Overview

Tour Duration: 2.30 hours

Upper Mustang is a remote desolate and extremely fascinating almost moon like region of Nepal set amongst wind eroded hills on the borders of Tibet.The region preserves a very strong traditional Tibetan Buddhist culture in Nepal.The number of tourists allowed to visit is strictly regulated and it is open to only to a few select groups each season. The whitewashed settlements are set amid fields of barley in the summer time and the many impressive chortens and simple monasteries only go to reflect the stregnth of Buddhist culture here. The terrain is striking, a semi-arid desert with deep ravines and rock shelves that are flanked by snowy peaks.Without doubt the highlight in Upper Mustang is the visit to Lo Manthang where the once king of Mustang reigns over what was his tiny kingdom until recently.And whilst he has now (only in the last few years) surrendered his title, he is still revered as a king by the regions  inhabitants. If you are considering this particular helitour you need to infor us 7 days in advance of arrival as special permits have to be issued.
