OverviewOverview

One of the most fascinating features of mustang is literally thousands of cliffs dwellings, some of which look completely in accessible. the most recent theory is that they may date 8-10,00 BC when mustang was a much greener land. Mustang is the old kingdom of lo. Actually the capital of the mustang district is Jomsom, but the real Tibetan style districts lie in north of kagbeni and are usually referred to as upper mustang. Mustang has an average elevation of 13000 ft and is located to the north of mountain giants of Dhaulagiri and Annapurna and is therefore north of the main Himalaya range and geographically is part of the highlands of the place called Tibet. this is a vast high valley, arid and dry, characterized by eroded canyons, colorful stratified rock formations and has barren, dessert like appearances.
Naturally, most of the history is now a matter of legend rather than recorded fact. but it seems clear that lo was once part of Ngari, part of Tibet and rather loose collection of feudal domins. it was incorporated into the Tibet empire under the most Tibetan kings Songtsengompo. it was an important means of crossing the Himalaya from Tibet to Nepal and many of the old salt caravans passed through Mustang. by 14 centenary much of ngari become part of malla empire,whose capital was sinja in western Nepal. Really, it becomes an independent kingdom in its own right under the rule of Ame pal, the founder king of lo in 1380. The present royal family can trace its history 25 generations back to Ame pal and the city of lomanthan which we will visit was the centre of the power. Recognizing the special nature of this old, tiny, kingdom, the Nepalese have imposed a surcharge for anyone wishing to trek past Kagbeni, the border of Upper mustang. With legal trekking
groups only being allowed in for the first time in March 1992, you would be part of small privileged minority to visit this remote outpost of Nepal. Now Magic Himalaya Treks and expeditions provide you the chances to explore on this area.
