2011 Upper Mustang Wild

We flew to Jomsom, and began our ascent into upper Mustang; the modern world quickly falling behind us as we took in the immense views of glaciated peaks and high, cold desert.  Our purpose was to visit the kingdom of Lo, and then explore the area between it and Dolpo, to the west.  Hence, an expedition.  An expedition is roughly defined as a journey undertaken for an exploratory purpose.  While there are maps on much of the Himalaya, the majority are a far cry from accurate. We set out to find out on each trip.
