Mustang Trekking

Mustang is one of Nepal's most mysterious and least known kingdoms. The landscape is a barren moonscape of eroded sandstone pillars and discontinuous moraine terraces, which together present a colorful mosaic made up principally of earthen reds, yellows and brown. Trekking is relatively easy along the permitted route to Lo Manthang, the capital city which lies close to the Tibetan border. The trek to Mustang is through an almost treeless barren landscape. Strong winds generally howl across the area in the afternoon, generally subsiding at night. Being in the rain shadow of the Himalaya, Mustang has much less rain than the rest of Nepal. Mustang lying in the rain shadow of the Himalayas is perhaps the last enclave of pristine Tibetan culture. Forbidden and isolated from the rest of the world for decades, it was able to evolve within its own distinctive culture and traditional which is so rich and unique. Lo Manthang, the capital city is walled and still ruled by a religious and spiritual king. Untouched by modern civilization, life in Mustang goes on as it has for centuries in unhurried pace. As everywhere in the Himalayas, this area provides spectacular mountain scenery highlighted by Dhaulagiri at 8,167 meters and Annapurna I at 8,091 meters. You will be surrounded by more than 35 mountains over 6,000 meters high.
