Mustang is an ancient Himalayan Kingdom, the former Kingdom of Lo which lies in the north-east of Nepal and bordering with China. It is roughly 80 km long (north-south) and 45 km at it’s widest and is at an elevation of over 2500 m. Mustang is also known as a “Tibet outside the Tibetan border” and hence it fosters the original Tibetan culture, although it is now politically part of Nepal. Upper Mustang consists of two distinct regions: the southern part and the northern where language, culture and traditions are similar to those of the Tibetan people.
The Upper Mustang area is considered one of the most interesting and picturesque places in Nepal. Nepal is a land of Festivals. For the Nepalese, festivals are not merely the annual spectacles, but also are the living part of their rich cultural heritage. In Upper Mustang you will get many insights on culture, religion and the Mustang people's local way of doing things.
On this trek you will see the ancient city of Lo Manthang, ancient caves, barren landscapes, monuments and many other things. Upper Mustang is a great trek, and the right trek if you are looking for a great trekking experience combined with lots of cultural inputs.
