Mustang trekking is one of the most mysterious trekking. In recent days, this trekking has been one of the most popular trekking destinations. It is relatively easy trekking along the permitted route to Lo Manthang. The trekking to Mustang is all about having trekking through an almost treeless barren landscape and a barren moonscape of eroded sandstone pillars and discontinuous moraine terraces, which together present a colorful mosaic made up principally of earthen reds, yellows and brown color mosaic. The trekking to Mustang is all about exploring the less known kingdom and exploring of a weird and wonderful landscape of eroded conglomerate cliffs, colored by natural earth pigments - reds, yellows, browns and blues. Mustang is shadow of the Himalaya, therefore, it has much less rain then the rest of Nepal. Tourists require permits to visit this region.

The trekking to Mustang begins across the foothills of the Himalayas from Pokhara, whereby you can reach either by flight or bus from Kathmandu. Then, pass through the small villages, terraced hillsides, rhododendron and bamboo forests, ascending to Ghorapani and Poon Hill for splendid dawn views of Dhaulagiri and Annapurna. At Tatopani, you will have famous for its hot springs and enter the spectacular Kali Gandaki river valley, the deepest gorge in the world. The mighty Kali Gandaki River passes between the mountains of Annapurna I and Dhaulagiri, both over 8000 m high. The Kali Gandaki valley was the main trading route with Tibet and the system of lodges and tea-houses here is well developed. Thakali ethnic people who inhabit in this area are renowned for their hospitality and for being obliging hosts. Subsequently, the trail follows to the Kali Gandaki river valley, then reach at Tukche and head up to the main trail on the way,you can have superb views of the icefall and across the deep valley to Annapurna and then continue to the north and finally you will reach to the Mustang, where you make trip to the area and explore the places lying alongside and descend down to Muktinath—famous temples and make excursion to the base of Thorung La Pass and descend down to Jomsom and catch plane to Pokhara and fly back to Kathmandu.
