When it comes to the history of Mustang, much of the details are based on stories rather than reality. Mustang was once a part of Tibet known as the Ngari district, according to legend. The Malla Empire (capital Sinja in western Nepal) inherited the bulk of Nagari in the 14th century. Mustang dominated trade between the Himalayas and India from the 15th to the 17th centuries due to its strategic position. Then, in 1380, under the leadership of Ame Pal, Lo Manthang became an autonomous kingdom. Ame Pal was responsible for the majority of the founding and construction in the Lo Manthang area, but the only surviving example of his work is the Kingdom of Lo.
Mustang was conquered by King Prithvi Narayan Shah at the end of the 18th century in order to unite the smaller states to form a single body. After Nepal’s dynasty was deposed, Mustang became one of the country’s districts.
Mustang has a lot of biodiversities, particularly in the trans-Himalayan region. There are plenty of animal habitats to sample.
