Mustang is subdivided into two names as Lower and Upper Mustang. Upper Mustang is a sacred area in Nepal hidden in the Himalayan ranges of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri. It is a somewhat restricted area for the outsiders because it has the unique historical & religious monuments and natural geographical features. So one has to get special permission from the Government of Nepal for trekking in this area.
Upper Mustang is a valley renowned with many beautiful names like a mystical valley, the last forbidden Himalayan Kingdom valley or the mini Tibet of Nepal. The Lo-Manthang is the capital of Upper Mustang. It is an antique Tibetan Village, with rare medieval Buddhist arts and exotic culture. The trek to this area is through an almost treeless barren landscape, a steep rocky trail with up and down hill, unbelievable panorama of Nilgiri, Annapurna, Dhaulagiri and several other peaks.
So the trekking tour to Lo-Manthang is incredibly satisfying one for those who want to experience the hospitality and warmth of the locals living in this remote area. It was able to evolve its own unique culture and tradition that is so rich & unique since it has been known to this world not so long ago. Lo-Mustang, the capital is a walled city ruled by a religious king who has the honorary rank of the Colonel in the Nepalese army. Life in Mustang goes on as it has for centuries at a leisurely pace.
