Mustang is located in the hinterland of Nepal, along the border with Tibet, and full of rugged barren mountains, deep canyons, eroded cliffs and Moraine valleys. On this hike, you'll experience a stupendous wilderness, one with pristine high desert mountain scenery, snow capped peaks, spectacular 16th century monasteries and many other unique sights. The view of wind swept Kali-Gandaki valley, vast spaces around Kagbeni and vast ridges that straggle high mountains provide a mind-blowing experience.
Nepal's Mustang region preserves a life almost unchanged for centuries. It lies hidden behind the Himalayan giants of Dhaulagiri and Annapurna at the very roof of Asia on the arid Tibetan plateau. It has long been isolated from the outside world (and only opened to trekking groups since 1992!). As you make your way through this secluded land, you'll pass brightly painted chortens (Buddhist shrines) and tiny villages guarded by enormous monasteries.
