Mustang Trekking

Mustang TrekkingMustang trekking is one of the most mysterious trekking in Nepal. Trekking in Mustang has been one of the popular trekking destinations in recent days. Mustang region lies in the western part of Nepal. It is relatively easy trekking as this follows through the permitted route to Lo Manthang. The trekking to this area was open only in October 1991. Mustang is situated on the head of Kali Gandaki River. The trekking to Mustang is all about having trekking through the almost treeless barren landscape and a barren moonscape of eroded sandstone pillars and discontinuous moraine terraces. It is accessible either on foot or by airlines. The Mustang is divided into two parts namely the upper Mustang and the lower Mustang. The upper Mustang is largely inhabited by Manangi people and goes up to the ancient capital of Lo Manthang. Mustang is the only district in Nepal with its own King. The people of Mustang call themselves Lobas. Their house and temple construction all over the region use stone but mostly mud bricks that are sun baked. Some beautiful architecture in this region, are the city wall and the four storey palace in Lo Manthang. The trekking to the area is basically for exploring the least known kingdom and exploring of a weird and wonderful landscape of eroded conglomerate cliffs, colored by natural earth pigments - reds, yellows, browns and blues, ancient monasteries, Tibetan plateau high place like a desert. Permission is required to be sought in order to have trekking in the region.

Trek to Mustang begins across the foothills of the Himalayas from Pokhara, whereby you can reach either by flight or bus from Kathmandu. Then, pass through the small villages, terraced hillsides, rhododendron and bamboo forests, ascending to Ghorapani and Poon Hill for splendid dawn views of Dhaulagiri and Annapurna. At Tatopani--famous for its hot springs, you then enter the spectacular Kali Gandaki river valley, the deepest gorge in the world. The mighty Kali Gandaki River passes between the mountains of Annapurna I and Dhaulagiri, both over 8000 m high. The Kali Gandaki valley was the main trading route with Tibet and the system of lodges and tea-houses here is well developed. Thakali ethnic people who inhabit in this area are renowned for their hospitality and for being obliging hosts and finally you will make excursion to the whole area and return back to Pokhara and subsequently in Kathmandu.
