Nepal’s Mustang is often compared to the fabled Himalayan valley of Shangri-La. Cut off from the rest of the world on the edge of the Tibetan Plateau, Mustang is a high altitude desert of rich red and ocher land, deep gorges, and the world’s highest peaks set against an infinite blue sky.

Mustang is home to an endless network of ancient trails that were once used by caravans carrying salt from the Tibetan plateau to the great plains of India. In the heart of the Mustang lies the world’s deepest valley, carved by the wild waters of the Kali Gandaki river between the two giant mountains Annapurna and Dhaulagiri.

Follow Rob J Heran as he explores the solitary trails of Mustang through magical villages and mystical monasteries.
