Trekking in the Kingdom of Mustang
May of this year I spent 3 weeks on a rarely available, traditional Himalayan camping trek to the “Mustang,the Last Forbidden Kingdom.” There is no road (yet) through Upper Mustang, a special-permit area of Nepal. It is a 5 day trek to get to the capital city, pop. 800. This Tibetian Kingdom is stunningly beautiful, culturally rich, and provides a extraordinary backdrop for introspection.
Undergrad in the arts at Ripon College, Wisconsin. Have owned several retail businesses in San Diego, from Hardwood and woodworking supply to art galleries. Presently owner of David Alan Collection in Solana Beach, Ca. It’s worth a peep at the website: www.thedavidalancollection.com (blog and villa avail on home page.) I spend about half of each year in the Far East collecting art and antiques throughout Asia, from Bali, Indoneasia, Japan, Thailand and China for David Alan Collection, as well as designing and making one-of-a-kind furniture and art pieces. Amita and I live in the San Diego area and travel extensively together and well as working on our own international projects.
