Trekkers to Mustang records twofold growth

The number of trekkers visiting upper Mustang has doubled compared to last year.

Thanks to reduced royalty and Tibet being closed to foreign tourists that helped to boost the trek there.

The beginning of the tourist season has already seen 1,850 visitors entering upper Mustang, whereas the number of foreign tourists permitted by the government is 1,000 individuals per year, according to the Annapurna Conservation Area Project (ACAP) data.upper-mustang

Tourism entrepreneurs estimate tourist arrivals in the region will reach 3,000 individuals by December.

The royalty to visit the area has been decreased this year to US$ 500 per person from US$ 700.

The natural beauty and rich cultural heritage of upper Mustang which reflects ancient Tibetan tradition attracts tourists to the tiny trans-Himalayan district.
