Mustang Region Treks

Mustang trekking region has a lot to offer every trekker. One of the few regions which could escape foreigners was Mustang, a Buddhist kingdom in the Himalayas. This region is perfectly a blend of ancient history and nature as renowned to be the mysterious and least known kingdom around all.Only a handful of Westerners had visited the area in western Nepal before it was opened to tourism in 1992. They brought back reports of a culturally highly developed, thriving medieval society and a landscape almost beyond description. It lies north of the two 8'000 meter 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 canyons and over plains. Erosion has left its marks in bizarre rock formations.

 

According to the history, humans have lived in this hostile environment for centuries. They have built their settlements along rivers and creeks, the villages of whitewashed houses appear like oases in a huge desert. People work as farmers on their fields, sowing and harvesting 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 thousand years ago. Much later, the region came under the influence of the Tibetan Yarlung dynasty. It takes some effort to discover the scenic and cultural beauties and mysteries of such an area.

 

Though this trekking area has a huge history behind it, one can explore and sense the beauty and importance of this region. A meaningful trekking route to plunge into is something we recommend to every trekker.
