Upper Mustang Trekking name Mustang refers to the arid region like Tibet, at the northern end of the Kali Gandaki. Mustang is official the name of the district along the Kali Gandaki from the Tibetan border south to Ghasa. Mustang is district of Jomsom in the region of Tibetan influence north of Kagbeni, generally referred to as Upper Mustang. Trek to Lo-Manthan is through almost treeless barren scenery. Upper Mustang has always strong wind in the afternoon, generally subsiding at night. Being in the rain shadow of Himalaya, Lo-Manthan has less rain than rest of Nepal. During the monsoon the skies are hazy and some rain. In winter there is usually snow, sometimes as much as 30 or 40 cm accumulate on the ground.
Upper Mustang Trek has highly preserved Tibetan culture and unspoiled nature. Upper Mustang is called kingdom behind the Himalaya. Trek has unique varieties of Landscape and Geographics. Mustang (from Tibetan Mun Tan (Wylie smon-thang) which means fertile plain) is the former Kingdom of Lo and now part of Nepal, in the north-central part of that country, bordering Tibet on the Central Asian plateau between the Nepalese provinces of Dolpo and Manang. The Kingdom of Lo, the traditional Mustang region, and "Upper Mustang" are one and the same, comprising the northern two-thirds of the present-day Nepalese Mustang District, and are well marked by official "Mustang" border signs just north of Kagbeni where a police post checks permits for non-Nepalese seeking to enter the region, and at Gyu La (pass) east of Kagbeni. Mutangis People follow Tibetan Buddhism as well.
Tibetan plateau with its endless expanses of yellow and grey rolling hills is eroded by wind. There is more rain in the lower part of upper Mustang and the hills tend to be great red fluted cliffs of tiny round stones cemented together by mud. Villages are several hours apart and appear in the distance almost as mirages during the summer season, after the crops are planted, they are green oases in the desert-like landscape. Because of the cold and snow, most of the population departs from Lo on trading expeditions during the winter. The trekking season, therefore, is from late March until early November. The trek does not go to extremely high elevations, but the cold, dust and unrelenting afternoon winds can make the trek less pleasant than other treks in Nepal. Tiji Festival one of the most sacred and colorful festivals in this whole region. Festival features a three day ritual known as the "chasing of demons". Monks donning masks and colorful costumes enact the story of Dorje Jono who fought against his demon father to save the Kingdom of Mustang from falling apart.
