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 and is the only one least rainfall place of Nepal. The key attractions of Mustang Trekking are Lo-Manthang (capital city of Mustang) and Tiji festival influenced by the Tibetan culture.
Basically, the Mustang Trekking starts from Jomsom after a short flight from the beautiful valley Pokhara. Around the trekking route, moraine valleys and craggy cliffs and deserted landscape prevail. Passing through the Himalayan ethnic settlements and some of the passes, you 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 stone walled city are some of the key features of the Lomanthang. The bushy flower range in this region is colourful. Local people are motivated to celebrate festivals and perform different rituals. The trekkers may be busy in exploring the very oldest monasteries, caves and other things like the culture and customs of the ethnic tribe (mainly influenced by the Tibetan tradition) of Nepal as well as the beautiful landscapes. But nowadays, this region has the accessibility of roadways. So, the visitors can choose this option too.In addition, there are many packages to reach at Mustang such as Lower Mustang Trek and Upper Mustang Trek. After accomplishing the trek and returning to Jomsom, you fly back to Pokhara through the mid range of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri massifs.
