The name Mustang refers to the arid Tibet –like region at the northern end of the Kali Gandaki, lying beyond the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri. Mustang is the land of barley fields, pastures for grazing herds. Upper Mustang consists of two distinct regions-the southern region with five villages inhabited by people related to the Manangis and the northern region (the ancient kingdom of Lo) where the language culture and traditions are almost purely Tibetan.
Mustangs being a restricted area there are certain formalities required by the government of Nepal in obtaining a special permit with liaison officer.The long forbidden region of upper Mustang is now open to limited number of trekkers. After an exciting flight through the Kali Gandaki, we land in Jomson and begin trekking north towards the kingdom of Mustang. Hiking past the villages with multi-storied houses, monasteries and crumbing castles we reach (4100 m.) Lho-Monthang, the walled capital of this kingdom. Mustang trek can be done during the summer months when the people are most active in the fields, villages and monasteries.The trek ends at Jomsom from where we fly back to Kathmandu via Pokhara.
