Mustang, the “fertile plain” straddles the Himalayas and extends northward onto the Tibetan plateau where the former Lo Kingdom of Mustang is found. To the east lies the Marsyangdi River and to the west lies the world’s deepest gorge, carved out by the wild waters of the Kaligandaki. Mustang is rich in Buddhist culture similar to Tibetan people. In this respect, it is an alternate way to experience the Tibetan culture. Upper Mustang trek, Jomsom Muktinath Trek, Damodar Kunda Trekking, Lower Mustang trekking are the popular trekking routes in Mustang. In addition to trekking to Lo Kingdom (“Upper Mustang”) and the Annapurna Circuit in lower Mustang, the region is also famous for Muktinath yatra and Marpha brandy.
The most convenient way to get to Upper Mustang, is to fly from Pokhara to Jomsom and start the trek from there. The flight is attractive in itself, flying through the deepest gorge in the world, between the Dhaulagiri and the Nilgiri. The trail follows the famous Kali Gandaki river upstream to Kagbeni. From Kagbeni the restricted area of Upper Mustang starts.
