From Beni, we follow the Kali Gandaki River upstream to Kaagbeni. it's quite hard to find stores above Kaagbeni so, trekkers need to be completely independent. The rough leave landscape of Upper Mustang is complimented by sprinkles of green vegetation. The course, for the most part, takes after the Kali Gandaki valley and at times moves high over the valley dividers. Lo Manthang, the old capital, can be reached within four days and no less than one additional day ought to be spent here to get the sights and sound of this interesting walled settlement. Horses are accessible for you to quench your thirst for entertainment. The rerouting trail can either take a similar course while entering or, as an option course; the eastern bank of the Kali Gandaki might be taken after.
