Long ago I just packed off my back pack for the mustang trekking with two french seeking journey to wonderful( The Land of Loba )Lomanthang and upper mustang. journeys started from Kathmandu on bus to Pokhara. we were four all together Bayeux, Jean, Adarsha and I. we were supposed to fly in to Jomsom but we had to go by bus due to bad weather condition.

Kagbeni : Kagbeni is a ancient town still its ancientness is existing but the modern development though of people is helping to disappeared soon within some years, they wont be erected with the status of ancient properties and prestige of Society. but it will carry the prospects of Sakyapa a doctrine of Buddhism, enrich in local custom and culture. if you visit there you can see more than I wrote here.

Loghyakar gumba is only one Ningmapa sect (doctrine )in upper Mustang or Loba zone. after loghyakar we passed the 4185 m and reached to Lo-manthang by enjoying the barren landscapes
The walled medieval capital of Upper Mustang has a name Lo Manthang. Venturing through the town entryway into the capital offers a vista of tight rear ways, long dividers of delightful petition wheels. What’s more, groups of cultivating creatures in the ‘Lost Kingdom’ is a stunning incredible sight.
The engineering luxury in Lo Manthang shows the four-story regal castle. What’s more, the delightful religious communities like the Thugchen Gompa worked in the fifteenth century. Or on the other hand, the city divider itself. . the Architect over the monastery were so gorgeous because in barren land structure were made by giant wooden logs . after exploring Lo-manthang we visited to Namgyal monastery and villages on beside. that moment also we visited to private school . we enjoyed a lot there and especially Bayeux did. jean was giving the company to see birds around the barren zone. after exploring Lomanthang and around we went Lurigumba we had to go via Lurigumba , Tange and Chhusang and Muktinath . so our steps headed to Luri gumba . during that moment we met a group led by khadka. some time we led trip some time we waited for rest. during the journey so many feeling aroused like we were walking on the surface of any other planet. we reache to Luri gumba explore around and next day we headed to Tange on the eway to Tange spontaneously Bea said Jaya!” I am feeling walking on the moon” she added . “The moon on the Earth ” in literature. my mind was glorying as we were walking on the surface of moon,there was just amazing landscape views and feelings were just in illusion of journeys along the different universe, just fabulous.whole trip was hypnotizing till to Muktinath even we had to walk a long and hard trail. it was just like journeys before reaching in paradise. some time with semi spiritual mood and some time fully spiritual mood we just walk to Jomsom and fly back to Pokhara and came to kathmandu.
