Upper Mustang trek or Lo Manthang leads you into the hidden kingdom of Mustang district. It is
called Lo. Lo used to be a part of the Tibetan empire. Here, villages are built in Tibetan style with white washed houses. The ultimate destination of Upper Mustang Trekking is Lo-Manthang. Lo-Manthang is a capital of Upper Mustang. It is a medieval town surrounded by a huge wall. Upper Mustang trek not only offers its visitors beautiful views of the rugged landscape but also allows them to observe the Tibetan Buddhist cultures that have been practiced in this region since many centuries ago. In an around Lo-Manthang hikers will also get to see ancient monasteries, Mani walls, Buddhist shrines, Gompas and Mandalas. The Mustagi people have their own way of family life, which is quite surprising for many outsiders. All the brothers in the family are married to a single girl, what you may call a practice of polyandry.
