Upper Mustang Trek, is one of Nepal’s most mysterious and least identified kingdoms. The landscape of Mustang is an unproductive moonscape of worn sandstone pillars that are irregular moraine terraces, which presents a colorful mosaic made up mainly of earthen reds, yellows and brown.
It is moderately easy trekking along the acceptable route to Lo Manthang, which lies in the exceptional heart of Mustang. The trekking to Mustang is through a nearly treeless barren landscape. Strong winds generally blow across the area in the afternoon, generally subsiding at night. Being in the rain shadow of the Himalaya, Mustang has much less rain than the rest of Nepal. It offers a spectacular trekking experience in the remote Himalayan mountain region of Nepal.
