Mustang, formerly Kingdom of Lo, is a remote and isolated region of the Nepalese Himalayas. Lo used to be part of the Tibetan empire and is therefore closely tied to Tibet in culture, language and geography. Trekking through this region offers spectacular views and a glimpse at an area rich in Buddhist culture and history. The trail follows the ancient salt caravan route through which the people of Mustang traded Tibetan salt for grain from the lowlands.
