Upper Mustang with Tiji Festival Trek is held in the historical remote Mustang, a land where the soul of man is still considered to be as real as the feet he walks on a land said to be "barren as a dead deer" but where beauty and happiness abound in spite of hardship, was a part of the Tibetan Kingdom of Gungthang until 1830's. The wall city of Lo- Manthang, unofficial capital of Mustang still remains a kingdom within a kingdom. The early history to Lo-Manthang is embellished in myth and legend rather than the recorded fact. Mustang has maintained its status as a separate principality until 1951.
