The Lower Mustang Trek offers a mesmerizing journey through the southern region of the Mustang district in Nepal, a land steeped in rich culture and natural beauty. Commencing from the picturesque city of Pokhara, this trek takes trekkers through charming villages, terraced fields, and dense rhododendron forests. The lower part of Mustang, known as Thak, is home to the distinctive Thakali people, and their unique Thakali culture is woven into the fabric of this trekking experience.

As trekkers ascend through the lower reaches of Mustang, they encounter the vibrant local lifestyle, characterized by traditional stone houses, prayer wheels, and intricately carved wooden windows and doors. The trail offers panoramic views of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountain ranges, creating a stunning backdrop to the cultural immersion. The trek typically includes stops in culturally rich villages like Jomsom, Kagbeni, and Marpha, known for their ancient monasteries, charming alleyways, and warm hospitality. With comfortable teahouse accommodations along the way, the Lower Mustang Trek provides a delightful blend of nature, culture, and warm encounters with the local Thakali communities.
