Upper Mustang has been declared third best tourist destination of the world

Upper Mustang known for its typical Nature, has been placed as top third tourist destination of the world on the name of Little Tibet – The lost Forbidden kingdom. Nepal’s trans himalayan district, Mustang has succeeded to be the third best tourist destination across the world. 
    Of the best ten tourist destinations across the world, Mustang was picked for its untarnished natural beauty and scenarios by the Lonely Planet. Tagged as “Little Tibet” and “The Last Forbiddent Kingdom”, the organisation said that one should visit Mustang before breathing his/her last breath on this planet. 

     The agency has said that though being a part of Nepal, the Mustang territory shares culture, language with Tibet and that its topography and climate has similarities. 
     The list which has picked top ten destinations for tourist for the year, Mustang is preceded by France’s Korsik, and Israel’s The Negyam. 
Presently the Nepal government has imposed restrictions on tourist visit to Mustang. Since 1992 a limited number of tourists are allowed to visit this reclusive territory by paying 500 hundred dollars for ten day tour. 
Clara Marullo has a perfect description of Upper Mustang in the book The Last Forbidden Kingdom Mustang - Land Of Tibetan Buddhism: 
Upper Mustang

Although politically part of Nepal, Upper Mustang is linked by religion, culture, and history to Tibet – and now stands alone as one of the last truly pure Tibetan cultures existing today. With its untouched temples, colorful festivals and red-robed lamas, the kingdom preserves not only the daily vernacular of Buddhist ethics, but a unique heritage of Tibetan religious art. ... In 1992 restrictions were eased, and the long-forbidden kingdom was cautiously unlocked.

Nestling like the missing piece of a jigsaw puzzle into the borders of Western Tibet, the tiny kingdom of Mustang occupies 780 square miles in the upper valley of the Kali Ghandaki River, to the north of the Himalayan massif.
