Upper Mustang has a long, reach and complex history that makes it one of the most interesting and picturesque places in Nepal. The name Mustang refers to the arid, Tibet-like region.( known to its inhabitants as Lho) at the northern end of the Kali Gandaki. The ancient kingdom of Lho where the language, culture and traditions are almost purely Tibetan. In their tradition, when the people dead, at funeral time first chop up dead body and feed to the Vulture, which concept is the dead person’s soul easily goes to heaven. Lho is small area(2000.sq km.) with a population of about 7000.only. Economically very poor condition of Lho people so far.

Mustang is probably a Nepali mispronunciation of the town of Manthang, capital of Lho. The capital of Lho is Manthang, which translates from the Tibetan as “plain of aspiration”. The name is pronounced “Moo-stang”and has nothing to do with either the automobile or horse with a similar name. Officially Mustang is the name of district and headquarters is in Jomsom.
