The Mustang Region was popular as the Mustang kingdom and closed for foreigners. Even after it was Nepalese territory, entry was tightly restricted for foreigners. Consequently, it drew much attention as a prohibited Kingdom. Mustang is a most remote area. It is a geographic extension of the Tibetan plateau. And Mustang is also well-known as windswept land of mountains preserving the last authentic remains of Tibetan culture. This area was completely isolated from the rest of the world and only opened to trekking groups in 1991.
Barley, potatoes, and buckwheat are growing in this region. And these are the staple diet of the villages through which our trek passes to reach the ancient walled fortress city of Lo Manthang. From here the border of Tibet is just a stone’s throw away. From Lo Manthang we can either return along from the same trail or head back to Jomsom by way of the sacred pilgrimage site of Muktinath. This region offers amazing scenery of the hidden and forbidden part of the remote mountainous zone.
In short, the trip provides you the chance to see the beautiful river valley of Kaligandaki. Similarly, you also will get a chance to an eyecatching marvelous view of the panoramic mountains over 8000 meters. Furthermore, the elegant settlement of the beautiful villages rich in Tibetan-Nepalese culture. This always makes the bikers a deep feel of enchanting driving through.
