Mustang Trekking: 16 Days
Mustang Trek is not like other destinations for trekking in Nepal. It is known as a mysterious kingdom of Nepal as well. The landscape of Mustang is very unique. It contains sandstone pillars and discontinuous moraine terraces which altogether gives one a colorful view of earthen red, yellow and brown colors. The trekking to mustang is the trek in which you will not even find a tree on the trails. As Mustang is on the rain shadow of the Himalayas, it gets the least rain than any other part of Nepal.
Mustang is not only different because of the unique landscape but also is identical because of the culture and tradition which is followed over there. Lo-Mustang which is the capital of Mustang is still ruled by religious king. The people living in Mustang are not affected by the modern civilization of the world. All the government works and the policies are same as that of Government of Nepal in Mustang as well but the people have not left worshiping the religious king as a god in Mustang.
Mustang is definitely a unique place to be in and trekking to Mustang will be one of the memorable things in the entire life for anyone who decides for this trek.
