Mustang (the forbidden kingdom) is the isolated region of the Kali Gandaki valley known as upper Mustang, This small medieval kingdom in the vast desert is ruled by a local king; only in 1950 it was officially declared part of Nepal, although it’s closely tied by language and culture to Tibet. It lies in the north of the two peaks between Annapurna and Dhaulagiri of 8,000 meters. The people of Mustang have built their own settlements along rivers and creeks, the villages of whitewashed houses appear like oasis in a huge desert, this place is almost tree-less barren landscape. Due to its sensitive location next to the Tibetan border, since 1992 it has been allowed to foreign visitors, tourism to Upper Mustang is regulated. Mustang is a place where beauty and happiness flourishes despite of hardships and obstacles. Mustang has a long, rich and complex history that makes it one of the most interesting parts of Nepal. However mustang is geographically difficult to live but beauty of this place is more difficult to explain in words. While one visits this isolated and mystic region once, one feels enchanting and inspired. Buddhist monasteries and nunneries are built into forbidding cliffs. There are many monasteries form the 14th century, Buddhist shrines, Thankas, Mandalas, and deities in and around the cliff. It is believed that there are many caves where Tibetan monks have meditated.The starkly beautiful, windy, arid Tibetan plateau is unbroken for many hours of trekking or riding on, horseback are also other exciting parts of mustang. As you know geographically it’s hard to live your life here but the people of Mustang have their own way of family life. The people of Mustang have their own culture which is quite surprising to outsiders; People of this region mostly grow potatoes, buckwheat and barley. In the mustang region, houses are made of stone and sun baked mud bricks. The city wall palace has kept the culture; lifestyle and heritage remain unchanged for centuries. Mustang is one of the few place in the world that has long-lived a very close-niche life and that region is still untouched, inaccessible to outsiders. Trek to upper mustang leads through an almost tree-less barren landscape panoramic views of Nilgiri, Annapurna, Dhaulagiri and several other peaks. July to November and March to June are the best months for this trip.
