Description:
Mustang District, a part of Dhawalagiri Zone, is one of the seventy-five districts of Nepal, a landlocked country of South Asia. The district, with Jomsom as its headquarters, covers an area of 3,573 km² and has a population (2001) of 14,981.

The district straddles the Himalayas and extends northward onto the Tibetan plateau where the former Lo Kingdom of Mustang is found, comprising the northern two-thirds of the Mustang District. This kingdom was officially abolished by the Nepalese government on October 7, 2008. In addition to trekking routes through the Lo Kingdom ("Upper Mustang") and along the Annapurna Circuit in lower Mustang, the district is famous for the springs and village of Muktinath (a popular Hindu and Buddhist pilgrimage site), apples, and Marpha brandy. Mustang was a lost kingdom of Tibet, and although it is now part of Nepal, traditions remains purely Tibetan in the former Lo Kingdom ("Upper Mustang.")
