Mustang region is surrounded by many mountains including Annapurna and Dhaulagiri. The inhabitants of this region are not influenced by modernity, but it is touched with the Tibetan border, so the lifestyles in Upper Mustang are homogenous with the Tibetans. They still maintain their traditional culture which is unique. Almost all the residences of this area are Buddhists.
It has almost barren landscape. This is the only one least rainfall place of Nepal. The key attractions of Mustang Trekking in Nepal are Lo-Manthang (capital city of Mustang) and Tiji Festival influenced by Tibetan culture.
Basically, the Mustang Trekking Nepal starts from Jomsom after a short flight from the beautiful valley Pokhara. Around the Mustang trekking route, moraine valleys and craggy cliffs and deserted landscape prevail. Passing through the Himalayan ethnic settlements and some of the passes, the trekkers reach to the enticing range of Lo-Manthang. The communities are still living the primitive life standard. Ancient monasteries, palaces, houses made from mud and stonewalled city are some of the key features of the Lomanthang.
The bushy flower range in this region is colorful. Local people are motivated to celebrate festivals and perform different rituals. The trekkers may be busy exploring the very oldest monasteries, caves and other things like the culture and costumes of the ethnic tribe (mainly influenced by the Tibetan tradition) of Nepal as well as the beautiful landscapes.
Nowadays, this region has the accessibility of roadways. So, visitors can choose this option too. In addition, there are different Mustang Trek packages such as Lower Mustang Trek and Upper Mustang Trek. After accomplishing the Mustang Adventure Trek and returning to Jomsom, you fly back to Pokhara through the mid-range of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri massifs.
