Sacred Treks: Mustang Trek & Cultural Adventure
Date: Sep 6, 2013 - Sep 21, 2013
A Journey to Mustang
Join guide Cathy Ann Taylor and Cattara—Adventures with Insight for this hiking and cultural adventure. Discover the fascinating and rugged land of Nepal’s Mustang region while raising money to support the Breast Cancer Fund.
Sacred Treks offers an extraordinary opportunity to build lasting friendships with a small team of trekkers and to honor loved ones who have faced the challenge of breast cancer. As a benefit for being on the trek and meeting the minimum fundraising goal, some great sponsor gear and incentive prizes will be provided.
The itinerary offers scenic panoramas of some of the sacred peaks of the Central Nepal Himalaya, countless opportunities to meet local folk in their picturesque villages and farms, and explorations of ancient temples and monasteries lost in time.
Lying on a high and austerely beautiful plateau behind the snowy Himalayan massifs of Dhaulagiri and Annapurna, Nepal's Mustang region is an enclave of ancient Tibetan culture. The people of Mustang maintain centuries-old traditions and, indeed, this hidden kingdom was completely closed to foreigners until 1991.
A road is in the process of being built from the Tibetan border to Lo Manthang, the 500-year-old walled city and capital of the Kingdom of Mustang, which will undoubtedly have implications for the people of this land. Join Sacred Treks: Mustang and see it before it changes forever. In addition, you'll be helping to raise funds for the Breast Cancer Fund.
