Overview

Until recently, the Kingdom of Mustang was a prohibited territory, and it was only allowed to tourists in 1991. The old Kingdom of Lo is situated north of the main Himalayan chain, between the snow-capped mountains to the east and west that border Tibet. It forms a reasonably broad and level ridge to the north, with less than 4600m passes. The temperature and land are dry, making it a one-of-a-kind high-altitude desert. It is the route where you will most certainly come across critical historical landmarks, including an 800-year-old cave and religious cravings that you just found. You’ll also stop at several historic caverns along with the way, including Upper Mustang Yoga Trek.

The route includes high peaks, mountains, glaciers, and alpine valleys. Years of isolation have preserved this region’s culture, lifestyle, and traditions unaltered for centuries and to this day. Mustang houses are typically composed of stone and sun-baked mud bricks. The city wall and the four-story palace at Lo-Manthang are two of the Mustang region’s most critical ancient attractions. Tiji Festival, held annually around May in the walled city of Lo Manthang, is one of Upper Mustang’s most prominent and colourful celebrations.

Upper Mustang Yoga Trek

It’s an old legend about chasing demons out of the sacred area of Lo Manthang. Mustang’s dry season comes to a close with the festival. Devotees from all across Mustang congregate, and Buddhist monks execute centuries-old sacred ceremonies. Lama performs many sacred dances while dressed in colourful clothes and masks. Everything takes place in the courtyard of the King’s palace. The myth depicts the conflict between a divinity named Dorje Jono and his evil father.

The Mustang people have their style of life, which many outsiders find odd. All of the brothers in the family are married to a single girl, a practice known as polyandry. The Mustangs are known as Lobas, and their King or tribe leader is Jigme PalbarBista. After Nepal was declared a republic in 2007, the Nepalese government rescinded the Bista’s designation as Mustang King. However, the people of that country still see him as their King. Mustang is a vital salt trading hub in the Trans Himalayan region. As a result, it has seen its fair share of yak caravans and traders.
