Manang District is a 2.250 Km2 high lands territory situated northwards of Annapurnas massif, between this and Chinese border.
Except the forested southern side of Manang Valley (northern slopes of Annapurnas), the region is out of monsoon climate and is very dry and desolated but with amazing landscapes.
Central and northern zones of Manang District are the old Mustang kingdom, very like to Tibet.

Except crystalline Precambrian basement, granitic intrusions and associated high grade metamorphic rocks in Dharapani and Chame areas, whole region is conformed by Tetyan Paleozoic and Mesozoic low grade meta-sedimentary rocks, mostly limestones and fine-grained clastic rocks.
Muscovite-Schorl-Garnet pegmatites are easily found in Dharapani and Chame. Complex gem-bearing pegmatite dykes are noticed in Naje, Dharapani county.
