Mustang  falls in the west area of Nepal and mainly the source of Tibet. Remaining out of sight at the backside of gigantic peaks Dhaulagiri and Annapurna, Mustang region is a restricted region where a special permit for trip is compulsory provided by a registered trekking agency and we, Nepal Planet Treks and Expedition arrange it all for you.

 

Mustang trekking path embraces treeless desolate scenery, upright rocky path uphill and descending hilly ways and arresting views of Annapurna, Nilgiri, Mt. Dhaulagiri, Tilicho peak, Mustang Himal, Tukuche peak as well as many other massive peaks. Mustang was off the beaten track or totally restricted region for the trekkers until the year 1991. Today, it has been referred as an ideal target for tourists.

 

The inhabitants in Mustang region are recognized as Lo and they stay towards the end of Kaligandaki. Mustang is also an aged Himalayan Kingdom with quite a few biggest Tibetan Buddhist monasteries.  As soon as we reach Jomsom the entrance to Mustang trekking begin. We will walk crossing few outstanding villages and arresting high passes, view the standard of livelihood of the settlers; see the deepest ravine in the world en-route. The fascinating peaks and often changing vista, white rinsed walls of Lo Mangthang are all that adds charisma to Mustang trekking.

 

We, Nepal Planet Treks and Expedition have arranged Mustang Trekking for those trekkers who desire to experience the isolated Himalayan lifestyle and come across the unaffected and typical traditions of the people there. Trekking to this region was completely camp trekking in the past days. However, the trek today is well-liked for tea house trekking.
