Tightly sealed off to the outside world until 1992, the tiny Kingdom of Mustang preserves a culture and way of life little changed over the centuries. Its King still resides in his palace in the walled capital of Lo Manthang. Several monasteries here predate the oldest monastery in Tibet. The well-preserved Tibetan Buddhist culture here has prompted some visitors there is more Tibet here in Mustang than in today`s Tibet. On top of all this, the trekking here is fabulous, and only moderate in its difficulty.
