This Magical Retreat in the Forbidden Kingdom is the ultimate reward for hip travelers

what to expect



Moksha Mustang perches high above the town of Jomsom at the gateway of Mustang, an isolated kingdom in Nepal, forbidden to outsiders for centuries. 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.

Environmentally-friendly guest rooms are designed in local materials—stone, slate and wood—based on traditional Tibetan homes, and adorned with locally-sourced, soft natural fabrics. Both standard and deluxe rooms come with indulgent en suite bathrooms and huge floor-to-ceiling windows delivering panoramic views, and Nilgiri mountain as the backdrop to your stay.


Outside In

Cool reigns at this exclusive and intimate boutique resort, comprising spa, restaurant, bar, library and conference hall, in a modern complex that effortlessly evokes the landscape and the rich design heritage of the Forbidden Kingdom. Glass walls throughout tempt occupants outdoors, but the outside comes inside, too. Moksha’s Fossil bar takes inspiration from the black ammonites natural occurring on the nearby riverbed, dating from the upper Jurassic period. Picture wide couches, low music, and excellent cocktails served in direct view of the 8000m peaks. The organic restaurant, Jomsom, named for the Mustang district capital, serves up healthful dishes, local and international, while the Lowa Spa brings all the secrets of the Forbidden Kingdom to your body.

As well as the great dining on offer at Mala Lodge, one of the programs available here is engaging with the community with a meal at the house of a local villager.
