"Mustang is one of only a handful few places in the Himalayan locale that has possessed the capacity to hold its conventional Tibetan culture unmolested...authentic Tibetan culture now survives just in a state of banishment and a couple places like Mustang, which have had long verifiable and social ties with Tibet."- The Dalai Lama

Upper Mustang is found is an old Himalayan Kingdom which lies in the northern focal piece of Nepal and at the highest point of the Kaligandaki River. Amid the Upper Mustang Trek, you enter the limited region of an antiquated land with its own particular unmistakable history and convention.

The Upper Mustang trek starts from Jomsom where is an airstrip. It is 150 km to achieve Mustang. The sparkling snow pinnacles, for example, Nilgiri, Muktinath and Tukche is covering the Mustang arrive. Nilgiri, Muktinath and Tukche are the popular holy place of Hindus.

The scene of Mustang is unmatched flawless view, dynamite ferocity, marvelous sixteenth century religious communities, snow topped pinnacles and numerous other one of a kind attractions. The trekking in straggle high mountains offers a remarkable affair.

Upper Mustang stays one of only a handful couple of ranges in Tibet's unique authoritative reach where Tibetan culture keeps on surviving. The test we confront today is to enhance our living conditions, and in the meantime to reinforce and keep alive our one of a kind culture. The Mustang locale is dry, destroy and blustery, and is a heaven like no other on earth. Solid winds exploding between the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountains have made a dry betray scene dusty and uncovered in all its excellence. As a result of dry atmosphere found here farming is unthinkable without water system and agro-beneficial land is additionally extremely ostensible. Polyandry, marriage of one lady with at least two siblings, is still by and by to maintain a strategic distance from the part of the family's farmland. In any case, similar to all customary ways, these are evolving as well. Mustang was an illegal land for a considerable length of time and little was known about this Trans Himalayan valley which has brilliant assortment of its legacy, enthusiastic Tibetan culture and intriguing scene. Early guests investigated the quiet elements of this one of a kind shrouded arrive, its incredible stronghold, antiquated religious communities, desolate seclusion and remote towns.

Upper Mustang comprises of two predetermine areas: the south locale with five towns occupied by individuals identified with the Managis; and the northern district (the antiquated kingdom of Lo), where the dialect, culture and customs are simply Tibetan, the capital of Lo is named manthang, which interprets from the Tibetan as 'plain of yearning' numerous writings allude to the capital as Lo Manthang, yet this is not entirely right, Other writings spell the name of the kingdom as Lho, however this is a transliteration of the Tibetan word for "south" and is likewise inaccurate. Along these lines the segment of the upper Mustang region north of Samar is Lo and its capital is Mustang the lord of Lo is the Lo Gyelbu, however I utilize the Nepali expression raja here. To maintain a strategic distance from aggregate disarray with existing Maps and messages, there are numerous mind boggling issues identifying with the improvement of upper Mustang and the techniques under which trekkers are permitted to visit the region.
