This route, almost treeless barren Landscape, steep rocky trail up and down the hill and eye-catching panoramic views of Mt. Dhaulagiri, Annapurna, Nilgiri and many other beautiful peaks is a very attractive trekking Destination .

The countryside of Lo Manthang is similar to Tibetan plateau with its endless expanses of yellow and gray rolling hills. At present Mustang is a very popular trekking region in Nepal. The region of the Tibetan influence, Kaligandaki, from the Tibetan border south to Kagbeni is generally referred to as “Upper Mustang”.
