Manang and Mustang, the dream of every people. Manang and Mustang are the most famous and tourism place of Nepal which lies in the Gandaki Province of Nepal. When the adventure word comes, with that the word ‘Manang and Mustang’ also comes together. Every people want to visit manang and mustang but the question comes with that, that is ‘How much it cost?‘ and ‘can we complete our journey?
So here I gave your all the required information related to this journey in brief.
There are two ways to start journey, one is from Kathmandu to Manang and again Manang-Pokhara-Mustang. But it takes long time and money. So another way is from Kathmandu-Manang-Thorang la Pass-Mustang. But remember that, thorang la pass is situated on the high altitude so, you have to walk more than 20km. But you can reach Mustang from 15km rout.
