Mustang is located in the mountainous region of Nepal and is bordered with Tibet on the north. People of Mustang unlike other Nepalese share a lot more with Tibet and China than Nepal because of geographical location. On the other hand, Mustang was considered as a very strategic region even by Nepalese monarchs like King Birendra and Dipendra used to visit Mustang regularly officially or unofficially.
Mustang people have been rich economically because of their business alliances with Lhasa and China. Most of folks up there traded different goods with businessman of Tibet. Even in America, Mustangeys like Nabin Sherchan and Sonam Lama are leading that tradition. Mustangeys have a great tradition of respect and honor to the King of Nepal which they carry to this day and if you visit homes of Mustang people in America, you will find the picture of King Birendra hanging at their living room.
Mustang is rich economically though undiscovered. A recent research team from America has found uranium ore in the Mustang region which is one of the most expensive resource in the world today. Uranium costs over $100 per pound. There is definitely no scarcity of other natural resources in the Mustang region.
Mustang has a system of their own local King that looks over the local affairs. Even during the reign of Shah dynasty in Mustang, they had their own King. This tradition continues to this day.
Mustangeys of America mostly live in Brooklyn area of New York. They follow Buddist religion and eat beef momo very often. Mustang people in America are among the most skilled blue collared workers especially in the area of construction and renovation. Many Mustangeys now own homes in different part of America and this is increasing the demand of skilled construction laborers everyday. Few Mustang people in America are well trained union laborers too working for the New York City.
