Mustang trekking is one of the most mysterious trekking in Nepal. It has been one of the popular and most loved trekking destinations in the country. Mustang region lies in the western part of Nepal and is officially the name of the district having a Tibet like region. It is relatively easy trekking along the permitted route to Lo Manthang. It was open in October 1991. Mustang is situated on the head of Kali Gandaki River. The trekking to Mustang is all about having trekking through an almost treeless barren landscape and a barren moonscape of eroded sandstone pillars and discontinuous moraine terraces, which together present a colorful mosaic made up principally of earthen reds, yellows and brown color mosaic. It is accessible either on foot or by airlines. The Mustang is divided into two parts namely the Upper Mustang and the Lower Mustang. Upper Mustang is largely inhabited by Manangi people and goes up to the ancient capital of Lo Manthang. Mustang is the only district in Nepal with its own King. The people of Mustang call themselves Lobas. Their house and temple construction all over the region use stone but mostly mud bricks that are sun baked. Some beautiful architecture in this region, are the city wall and the four storey palace in Lo Manthang. The trekking to the area is basically for exploring the least known kingdom and exploring of a weird and wonderful landscape of eroded conglomerate cliffs, colored by natural earth pigments – reds, yellows, browns and blues, ancient monasteries, Tibetan plateau high place like a desert. Mustang is shadow of the Himalaya, therefore, it has much less rain then the rest of Nepal. Tourists require permits to visit this region. The team of the Alliance Adventure has long been organizing trekking to the area and is one of authorized trekking agencies.

The trekking to Mustang begins across the foothills of the Himalayas from Pokhara, whereby you can reach either by flight or bus from Kathmandu. Then, pass through the small villages, terraced hillsides, rhododendron and bamboo forests, ascending to Ghorapani and Poon Hill for splendid dawn views of Dhaulagiri and Annapurna. At Tatopani–famous for its hot springs, you then enter the spectacular Kali Gandaki river valley, the deepest gorge in the world. The mighty Kali Gandaki River passes between the mountains of Annapurna I and Dhaulagiri, both over 8000 m high. The Kali Gandaki valley was the main trading route with Tibet and the system of lodges and tea-houses here is well developed. Thakali ethnic people who inhabit in this area are renowned for their hospitality and for being obliging hosts and finally you will make excursion to the whole area and return back to Pokhara and subsequently in Kathmandu.
