Mustang Jeep tour is the good opportunity for those travelers who don’t have enough time and want to do a luxury tour to explore untouched Tibetan culture and topography. This formerly kingdom ranks to the top tourist destination in the world. Its surrounding area is enriched with ancient caves, 16th-century historic monasteries, and archaeological sites. It has amazing wilderness, spotless scenery with snow-capped mountains and many other exclusive attractions. Himalayan Leaders organized an unforgettable and magnificent trip with our expert team.

Lo-Mangthang city was founded in about 1450 by the son of the legendary Ame Pal, who conquered and united the small kingdoms in upper Mustang. The high wall, 300m long by 150m wide, in an ‘L’ shape, has safeguarded the town from warriors, bandits and fierce winds for hundreds of years and archaeologists say the fact that the wall has not been extended is proof that this community has remained largely unchanged for the last 500 years. Around 1200 people live in about 150 houses, connected by narrow alleyways. Most of the houses are two-storeyed, with the bigger buildings being monasteries or palaces. There are some chortens in front of the main gate, and after these, the first building we see is the 40’ high king’s palace.
There are three monasteries in Lo Manthang, but monks are only resident in the newest, Chode Lhakhang, which is about 200 years old and offers secular as well as Buddhist teachings. The other two monasteries are no longer used but are looked after by different families, who share the duties of changing the water each morning and lighting the butter-lamps when night falls. Many people here protect their homes from evil spirits by hanging ‘ghost traps’ over their doors – these are decorated goat skulls with pieces of string knotted around).
The landscape around Lo Manthang is jigsaw-like in its diversity, being composed of valleys, canyons, plains, snow-topped mountains and rivers, with the ancient city as the centerpiece.
