Mustang; A Lost Tibetan Kingdom

The Upper Mustang was a restricted demilitarized area until which makes it one of the most preserved regions in the world, with a majority of the population still speaking traditional Tibetic languages. Tibetan culture has been preserved by the relative isolation of the region from the outside world. Life in Mustang revolves around tourism, animal husbandry and trade. The southern third of the district is called Thak and is the homeland of the Thakali , who speak the Thakali language , and whose culture combines Tibetan and Nepalese elements. Mustang's status as a kingdom ended in when its suzerain Kingdom of Nepal became a republic. The influence of the outside world, especially China , is growing and contributing to rapid change in the lives of Mustang's people.
