Mustang Region Trekking

Our fascination for the unknown and the ability to explore the undiscovered have given us access to almost every corner of the world. One of the few regions which could not escape foreigners was Mustang, a Buddhist kingdom in the Himalayas. Only a handful of westerners had visited the area in western Nepal before it was opened to tourism in 1992. They bought back reports of culturally highly developed, thriving medieval society and a landscape almost beyond description. Desolate canyons and deserts define the scenery. It lies north of the two 8000meters peaks Annapurna and Dhaulagiri.

The arid place with snow capped mountains and barren hills reaches deep inside the vast Tibetan plateau. Cold winds sweep through narrow gorges and over plains. Erosion has left its mark in bizarre rocks formations. Yet humans have lived in this hostile environment for centuries. They have built their settlement along river and creeks, the village of white washed houses appear like Oasis in a huge desert. The main harvests of this region are barley and potatoes and driving cattle to relatively fertile meadows. Lo Gekar, the oldest monastery in Mustang high up in vertical cliffs are inaccessible caves where people dwelled two thousands years ago. Much later the region came under the influence of Tibetan Yarlung dynasty. Lo Manthang, capital of former kingdom is also located in this region.
