Mustang is located in the northern central part of Nepal near the origins of the Kali Gandaki River. It has been open for the treks since 1992. It is the most mysterious and least known region of Nepal. The landscape of Mustang resembles a barren moonscape of eroded sandstone pillars and crumbling moraine terraces. Mustang is known for its colorful layers of reds, yellows and brown earth. Mustang is often referred to as the Hidden Valley. It is relatively easy trekking for all ages. It follows the permitted route to Lo Manthang a small country under one of the few Nepalese principality titular kings, King Jigme Palwar Bista. The trek to Mustang is through an arid, desert-like landscape. Strong winds move through the area in the afternoon – subsiding in the evening. Mustang recieves much less rainfall than the rest of Nepal because it is shielded from storms by the Himalayas. Most of the population of Mustang lives near the river.
Upper Mustang consists of two distinct regions: the southern part and the northern part. The southern part is similar to the rest of Tibet. The Northern part was forbidden and isolated so the languages and traditions were able to evolve into a unique and rich culture. Mustang is perhaps the last enclave of pristine Tibetan culture. Lo-Mustang, the capital is a walled city ruled by religious king. Untouched by modern civilization, life in Mustang goes on as it has for centuries in an unhurried pace. As everywhere in the Himalayas, this area provides spectacular mountain scenery highlighted by Dhaulagiri at 8167 meters (26,795ft) and Annapurna I at 8091 meters (26,545ft). You will be surrounded by more than 35 mountains over 6000 meters (19,680ft) high. The elevation of the the trails rise from 2815 meters (9,233ft) to 3780 meters (12,398ft) above sea level.
