Hidden behind the giant peaks Dhaulagiri and Annapurna, Mustang lies in the southern border of the Tibetan highland and is one of the restricted areas which require a special trekking permit through a registered trekking company to visit.

Mustang trekking consists of treeless deserted scenery, vertical rocky tracks up and down and beautiful views of Mt. Dhaulagiri, Mt. Nilgiri, and Mt. Annapurna, including many other peaks such as Tukche peak, Mustang Himal, Tilicho peak, and Arniko Chuli.

The route to Mustang implies traveling through landscapes of arid regions, barren edges, deep gorges, and moraine valleys and eroded rock faces. Also, barley fields and grazing land where sheep are seen grazing and horses are used to carry heaps. The views of the desolate Kali Gandaki Valley, almost infinite spaces surrounding Kagbeni, rambling ridges and elevated mountains offer an amazing experience for adventure lovers.

Trekking in Mustang is really one of the most gratifying experiences you can ever acquire. You will also get a chance to explore the ancient society that has been untouched by modernization for centuries. This Mustang trek can be also referred to as the Rhododendron trek as it takes you to different varieties of rhododendron forests and it looks more beautiful during spring season because of blossoming rhododendrons.

On this trek you will also get to cross Annapurna Circuit's Thorong La Pass (5417m.) where you will enjoy some absolutely stunning high Himalaya scenery over the Kaligandaki valley through the entire Annapurna range, Mukut and Mustang Himal to the West. This trek will also take you to Mesokunda La pass (5315m) which allows you to witness the large Himalayas and the route to this pass is covered by snow almost all the time. You can go for this moderate and strenuous trek during spring, summer and autumn.
