Mustang is the Nepal’s hidden Shangri-la and the capital of weird natural wonders. [Mustang Trek]

Mustang, dubbed as 'lost kingdom' or 'the forbidden Kingdom' is one of the popular trekking destinations in Nepal, located in the western part of Nepal. Mustang is remote and mysterious village, where mostly Tibetan origin people inhibit, you will be able to observe the Tibetan culture, customs and rituals, therefore it is also known as a 'little Tibet'. Mustang no doubt is popular for having stunning views of the Annapurna Himalayan range, ancient walled city of Lo Manthang, with its palace and ancient monastery.

Mustang, the arid Tibet like region at the north end of the Kaligandagi, is the name of the capital of Lo, the city of Manthang. The capital of Lo is named as Mangthang, which translates from the Tibetan as 'Plain of aspiration'. Mustang is divided into two--upper and lower Mustang, both have a number of attractions. The former Himalayan Kingdom of Lo, now known as upper Mustang-is often depicted as Nepal’s hidden Shangri-la, a remote outpost largely isolated from the outside world. But these days, it has been one of the ultimate destinations among travelers coming to Nepal. In medieval times, upper Mustang was an independent kingdom, its location giving it control over trade between the Himalayas and India. Lo Manthang, which for centuries served as the capital, is known for its white painted buildings, built of whitewashed mud bricks and teeming with Buddhist prayer wheels and Stupas, frequently draped with colorful Buddhist prayer flags. The whole region is one of the few places in the country where traditional Tibetan culture has survived intact.

Mustang was closed to the outsiders up until 1992. Ever since it was open, Mustang has been one of the popular trekking for exploring this mysterious kingdom, blend of culture and Himalayan vista. As it remained in isolation from the outsiders for long time, this isolation helped people of Mustang to maintain their lifestyle, and heritage intact. Furthermore, Tiji festival of Lo Manthang, has been one another attraction. The festival is known as the chasing of the demons. All inhabitants of Lo Manthang take part in this three-day show of music, colorful costumes, and elaborate dancing. The celebration revolves around the story of a deity, Dorje Jono, who battles against his demon father. Eventually, good triumphs over evil and the father is banished.

Mustang is one of the most popular trekking destinations in Nepal, where you will have an opportunity to explore the weird natural wonder. Lo Manthang is located at the heart of Mustang, which is a treeless barren. Similarly, you will also explore the numerous of Buddhist monasteries and nunneries built with forbidding cliffs and no doubt visit to Kagbeni, a quaint medieval town nestled in apple orchards and encircled by majestic mountains. Located in the Himalayan shadow, rains much less in Mustang than the rest of other areas in the country, and therefore, it is possible to have trekking during the rainy season.
