Mustang Trekking

Mustang TrekkingTrekking in Mustang region is one of Nepal's most mystifying and least recognized territories. The countryside of Mustang is an unfruitful moonscape of battered sandstone pillars and irregular moraine terraces, which mutually present a colorful mixture made up mainly of earthen reds, yellows and brown. It is moderately easy trekking along the allowed route to Lo Manthang, which lies in the very heart of Mustang. The trekking to Mustang is through an almost treeless unfruitful countryside. Tough winds usually howl across the area in the afternoon, normally subsiding at night. Being in the rain shadow of the Himalaya, Mustang has much less rain then the rest of Nepal.

Mustang trek was prohibited and remote from the rest of the World fortunately it was able to develop its own unique culture and traditional which is so rich and distinctive. Lo-Manthang, the capital is walled city ruled by spiritual king. Untouched by modern culture, life in Mustang goes on as it has for centuries in leisurely speed. As universally in the Himalayas, this area offers magnificent Mountain Views decorated by Dhaulagiri at 8170 m. and Annapurna I at 8000 m. You will be bounded by more than 35 mountains over 6000 m. high. The heights of the trails ascend from 2820 meters to 3780 meters above sea level.
