Lo Manthang: The Upper Mustang Trek

The Kingdom of Lo-Manthang or Mustang situated at an altitude of 3770m is an independent kingdom within Nepal and its King having allegiance to the King of Nepal. Though the people call themselves Lobas – people from Lo, they are very much Tibetan and practice a sophisticated culture and economy. The King’s palace is an imposing 4 – storey building in the center of the walled city. It is the home of the ex-king – Jigme Parbal Bista. The Honorary title “Bist – a high caste title in Nepali” was conferred by the King of Nepal. Though his duties are largely ceremonial, he is respected by the people and consulted about many issues by villagers throughout Lo. Despite the apparent squalor of Lo Manthang, the city is prosperous and maintains a strong sense of community.

This is a restricted area. Foreign visitors have been allowed to the region since 1992, but tourism to Upper Mustang is regulated. Foreigners need to obtain a special permit to enter and costing US$ 500.00 per person for first 10 days and an additional US$ 50 per day for each additional day.

Mustang is rich in Buddhist culture similar to Tibet. So, it is an alternate way to experience the Tibetan culture and Landscape. Tiji Festival in Lo-Manthang is another attraction for tourists.
