Sustainable tourism in Upper Mustang Trek: Promoting Responsible Travel with Himalaya Land Treks

Upper Mustang has witnessed a surge in tourism since it opened its doors to the outside world. While this has provided a much-needed boost to the local economy and living standards, it has also resulted in social, economic, and environmental challenges.

The Impact of Tourism in Upper Mustang

The natural environment of Upper Mustang is fragile and vulnerable to tourist pressure. The influx of visitors can cause irreversible damage to the local ecosystem. Additionally, the porters and guides who support the tourism industry are often paid low wages and work in unfavorable conditions.
