Shinta Mani Mustang

Perched high above the town of Jomsom, at the gateway of the kingdom of Mustang, awaits Shinta Mani Mustang. With dramatic landscapes and rich Buddhist culture, this property is surrounded by many monasteries and some of the highest snow-capped peaks in the world. This almost mythical region, hidden in the Kali Gandaki valley between the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountain ranges, is one of the deepest valleys and most unusual places in the world.

Comprising six private suites with one or two bedrooms each, this family-owned lodge has direct access to some of the world’s best wildlife viewing. In 2012, House on the Wild was the launch pad for Enonkishu conservancy, a pioneering rewilding project that over time has handed 2,500 hectares of intensively farmed land back to nature.

I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to you and your team for looking after us so well! Who could have foreseen electric storms and the civil unrest in Chile. You couldn’t have looked after us better if you had been on the spot! We had an AWESOME adventure – your advice and suggestions were bang on the nail every time. Each hotel was better than the next and the cruise was FANTASTIC.
