Summary

Mustang formerly kingdom of lo, is a remote and isolated region of the Nepalese Himalayas.The upper Mustang was the demilitarized area until 1992 which makes it one of the most preserved regions in the world. Lo Manthang was the walled capital of the kingdom of lo from its founding in 1380 by Anne Pal who over saw construction of the city wall and many of the still standing structure.

Overview

It is one of the Nepal’s most mysterious and least identified kingdoms. It is easy moderately easy trekking along with the acceptable route to Lo Manthang, which lies in the heart of Mustang. The trekking here in Mustang is generally done in the barer landscape with the strong winds blowing in the afternoon. As it is in the rain shadows of the Himalaya, Mustang has much less rain then the rest of the Nepal.

This trek gives an individual a great opportunity to know about the unique culture and tradition of this locality, as it is remote and forbidden kingdom to the rest of the world. Polyandry marriage and sky burial are still a common practice in the part of the region. As everywhere in the Himalayas, this area also provides stunning mountain scenary.

    This is one of the hardest treks and gives you a sense of joy when you complete it. The team was wonderful and helped us all the way to complete it. The food was very nice looking on the conditions. The team made sure that we enjoyed the difficult terrain and motivated us to move.
