Mustang Region is a part of Nepal located in the north-central region encircling Tibet on the Central Asian highland between the Nepalese territory of Manang and Dolpo. The region is also known as cold desert in Nepal. The attractive Kali Gandaki River in the Mustang Region flows southward to the Terai dividing the region. The way parallel to the river was once a major business route sandwiched between Tibet and India, particularly for salt. The maximum height of long-established Mustang also known as the Lo Kingdom ranges from a low tip of 2750 m on the Kali Gandaki River to Khamjung Himal 6700 m to the southeast of Mustang. Mustang is mostly dry and waterless with annual rainfall from the range of 250 to 400 mm because of its place in the rain shadow of the Dhaulagiri Range and the Annapurna massif.
Mustang trek offers us an opportunity to visit a barren region further than the Dhaulagiri and Annapurna. The path will takes us across desert like land barren crests windswept cliffs moraine valleys and deep gorges. It is the region of barley meadow we can observe sheep grazing and horses carrying loads. The scenery of desolate Kali Gandaki Valley gigantic places around Kagbeni, extensive ridges and elevated mountains offer an amazing experience for adventure seekers.
