The name translates to Moses’ Mat which has different stories associated with it. While some believe it to be named after a local shepherd with the name of Musa who used to pray at the peak here, On a clear day, the summit offers exciting panoramic views of the entire area and surroundings.Its a very beautiful hiking spot and life time experience. This hiking tour is an extravaganza of nature painted with crystal clear streams, flowering meadows, cascading glaciers and dense forest.

Village Manda Gucha Mansehra
It is village name MUNDA GUCHA where we started our journey for very beautiful Mussa ka Mussala. The road from Shankiari ends here.

Accommodation is a difficult question in this area. It is the total natural area where you cannot find luxurious hotels. In the beginning of trek you can find some Food points where locals eat food if you want you can stay there for night on hard benches. most fit option is your Tents, camps.you have to come in this area with camps for night stay so camping is the best option.

As discussed earlier you can find some food point in beggining of trek near village called Munda Gucha and Hadhur(A place name) after that you have to arrange all food. you should take good amount of food.
