Kingdom between Tibet and Nepal
It is the area that used to commercially connect Tibet and India in the history. Originally a number of small kingdoms were united and the seat moved to royal town of Lo Manthang. Since 1790 is the area part of Nepal. Mustang’s autonomy was abolished in 2008. Limited tourism has begun here from the 70th of the 20th century. The need to obtain an entry permit is valid also today as well as compulsory guide who accompanies tourists. Upper Mustang officially begins with control entry point in Kagbeni. However, the tourist can get to the high upper part through this harsh and dry landscape by leaving Kali Gandaki river bed and steep ascent behind the village of Chele.
