Located in the western district of Nepal, there is more to the Upper Mustang trek than meets the eye. This great place has its own history of hundreds of years in terms of Asian history. This place has been a strategic ground where the rulers of Tibet and Nepal stood to shake their common interests, so it does a remarkable job of playing its strategic approaches.
Upper Mustang is accessible via the Motorway as it is in the upper belt of the Mustang and is characterized by layers similar to Tibet. The Upper Mustang Trek course has been used by dealers and the armed forces for hundreds of years. However; We will presently be talking about the five principle features of the Upper Mustang Trek or generally known as Lo-Manthang. Right away, let us begin check
The highlight of the Upper Mustang trek is Lo Manthang. Lo Manthang is the capital of Mustang.

Despite the apparent seriousness from a visitor’s point of view, the Lobas are a people of immense wealth.
In Lo Manthang, there are a few destinations to visit for a week. There are about four notable sanctuaries within Lo Manthang town. The first is the three-storied Jampa (Champa) Lhakhang, which means place of divine beings and dates back to 1387. The second is the fifteenth-century red Thubchen Gompa, located near the heart of the city. The third owner of the Mustang did this. The third is Chode Gompa, which was worked on in 1710. Further, the fourth is Choprang Gompa, which is another gompa meant for meditation.
Similarly, the King’s Palace at Lo Manthang is another marvel of the city. King Jigme of Mustang is very strong now. Although the king’s duties are generally stylized, the common people of Upper Mustang consult him on every matter related to Mustang. From here you can buy ponies and visit some of the towns in the region. East of Lo Manthang are the Chosar, Garphu and Niphu Gompas and fascinating cave dwellings. Similarly, towards the north, you will see two slopes where there are remains of a fort which is currently Akash Samadhi.
After reaching Chuksang, you will see three clusters of whitewashed stones. To the south is the Mensunkhang Cave Gompa in the settlement. You have to pay NR 130 for confirmation. Finding the man with the key is doubtful, on the off chance that you find him, at that point you can slowly walk through the dilapidated steps and have the opportunity to see extraordinarily old, untouched statues.

Mani Wall is another great site that you will see during your trek in Upper Mustang. These gem dividers. As you plunge through the Tsarang Track into the steel scaffolding of Tangmar Chu, you’ll be focused on the longest gem wall in all of Nepal.
The common people of Upper Mustang consider themselves Lobas (people of the land). Their way of life is particularly similar to that of the Tibetans. The Lobas, for the most part, live in an open two-story open focal yard where the ground floor is their troop of ponies and farm implements. As you visit their homes, you will see spirit nets produced using the horns of sheep and goats in the shape of a cross with strings in five colors woven into the shape of precious stones. These spirit traps, otherwise known as jors, are believed to catch evil spirits and save them.
Town of Tsarang:
Located at an altitude of 3575 meters, Tsarang is an authentic site with five storied White Dzong and Geru Gompa. The former royal residence, which dates back to 1378, was once Mustang’s finest library. However, despite everything, it holds a gold-leafed pleading book. You will see a collection of protected snow panthers there, driving away the evil spirits.
