Lower Mustang Photography Trek
11 days, Grade B
A taste of Nepal with an introductory trek in the Himalayas … This is a well chosen and very thoughtfully written itinerary for photographers looking to capture the magnificent landscape and the different cultures that have evolved in the varying climate zones of this Himalayan Region. After a tour of Kathmandu including the Hindu pilgrimage site of Pashupatinath and the Buddhist Stupa of Boudha, you will head west to Pokhara for a five day trek in the Annapurna Region. A beautiful mountain flight lands you in Jomsom on the lap of the Himalayas where you are surrounded by some of the worlds tallest mountains. Though in the middle of these giants the terrain you trek on is surpprisingly gentle for average walkers. The trekking trail follows the Kali Gandaki Valley up to Muktinath, passing through some of the outlying villages with magnificent scenery. The Muktinath Temple at 3800m is amongst the holiest pilgrimages for Hindus, the landscape , the culture and the scenery that surrounds it is amongst the major highlights of this trip.
Back in Kathmandu, you have a couple of free full days to take an optional Everest view flight , additional sightseeing of UNESCO sites or shop and relax.
The aspirational imagery of temples, mountains and people you encounter on this journey provides unlimited opportunity for photographic exploration. There are opportunities for beginners and experts alike to develop and apply your skills and return home with enviable set of images.
