It is surrounded by the Tibetan Plateau and sheltered by some of the world’s tallest peak. The word Mustang is derived from the Tibetan word which means ‘Plain of Aspiration’. The entire district comes under the ‘Annapurna Conservation Area’, the largest protected area of Nepal. It is the deserted destination through off-the-beaten-path. The tour to Mustang with a private rental vehicle offers a beautiful and stunning view of mountains and peaks, diverse flora and fauna, local inhabitance with their unique and interesting lifestyle, culture, and tradition. This place lies behind the Dhaulagiri Mountain, which is believed as a dessert of Nepal, as very few rainfalls occur and the landscape is dry and rough throughout the year.

Muktinath Temple, Mustang

Mustang lies at the elevation of 2500 meters (13200ft) where you will find extreme weather conditions and rare kinds of vegetation. To reach this place it is quite easy through the airway but the adventure does not support airway services. To experience the adventure, you have to suffer through little pain and enjoyment of the natural beauty of that place which you can gain through the road trip. Taking this road trip will allow you to enjoy the en-route scenario and rare natural habitat throughout the journey. Since this tour with the private car starts from Kathmandu, there remains a certain change in the altitude so, it is necessary to be careful about it.
