In March 1992, the ‘forbidden’ kingdom of Mustang was opened to the outside world. Now, for the first time in recent history, foreign travelers are able to visit Lo Manthang, the seat of an ancient kingdom dating back to the 15th century.
The people of Upper Mustang are called Bhotias and those from Lo are called Lobas. They speak various dialects of Tibetan. Historically, their art and culture flourished due to contact with traders, monks and religious masters passing between Tibet and India, or between Ladakh and Bhutan.
The walled city lies in the remote Himalayan desert behind the massive Annapurna and Dhaulagiri Himalayan range, it still stands as a testimony to Lo-Mangtang’s prosperity and rich cultural heritage the area is part of the Tibetan plateau, and is high, dry and beautiful. It is only possible to enter with an organized group.
