Before 1992 the region was banned to visit for foreigners.

As everywhere in the Himalayas, this area provides spectacular mountain scenery highlighted by Dhaulagiri at 8167 meters (26,795ft) and Annapurna I at 8091 meters (26,545ft). You will surround by more than 35 mountains over 6000 meters (19,680ft) high. The elevation of this trails rise from 2815 meters (9,233ft) to 3780 meters (12,398ft) above sea level. Strong winds generally howl across the area in the afternoon, generally subsiding at night. The trek to Mustang is through an almost treeless barren landscape Being in the rain shadow of the Himalaya, Mustang has much less rain then the rest of Nepal.
Trek to Mustang allows the travelers to witness heavenly beautiful Trans-Himalaya landscape, ancient Tibetan Buddhist shrines such as Stupas, Chhortens, Kaanis, Prayers walls, centuries old monasteries and isolated region is incredibly satisfying one for those who want to experience the hospitality and warmth of the locals living in this remote area.
