Few Region of the great himalayas remain unraveled.The ancient kingdom of mustang in western nepal is one of them it is divided into two parts namely the Upper mustang and the lower mustang.Upper Mustang is largely inhanbited by manangi people and goes up to the ancient capital of Lomanthang.Whereas lower mustang covers the part of lower valley along thekaligandakiriver.Forbidden and isolated from the rest of the world.

Mustang was able to evolve its own culture and traditional which sorich and unique.This is the only district in Nepal with its ownreligios king .The people of mustang call themselves lobas.Theirhouseand temple construction all ove the region use stone but mostly mud and bricks that are sun baked .Some beautiful architectures in this region are th city wall and the four story palace in lo manthang.Untouched by modern civilization,life in mustang goes on as it has for centuries in unhurredpace.There are so many caves,Monasteries,School and hills around lomanthang where you can hike to observe tibetan border.

Upper Mustang being in the himalayan rain shadow is one of the fewparts of thecountry that are suitable for trekking during the summermonsoonperiod.Even at this time,the upper kali gandaki valley is still quite dry with only occasional rainfall.The mustang trek is not particularly difficult,the highest point reached in only 3800m.But the conditions at times can be ardeuous.Cold in einter and windy and dusty all year.Winter treks are best avoided due to the cold when many of the locals migrate to southern parts of the country and even to india.
