Mustang is an ancient Himalayan Kingdom which lies in the northern central part of Nepal and at the top of the Kaligandaki River. Upper Mustang consists of two distinct regions: the southern part and the northern, where the languages, culture and traditions are similar to those of the Tibetan people. This area is considered one of the most interesting and picturesque places in Nepal. The entire area has an isolated and mystical feel to it, enchanting and inspiring visitors to this region.
The trek to Lo-Manthang is through high altitude desert country climbing in and out of the huge sided valley of the Kali Gandaki. In places the gorge, which the Kali Gandaki River runs through, is the deepest in the world. This region is full of some of Nepal’s oldest Buddhist Monasteries, ancient and isolated villages with quaint white washed houses. Luri Gompa and Yara/Ghara village lies southeast of Lo-Manthang, Luri Gompa (Cave monastery) sits high above the crumbling landscape like an eagle’s nest. It is some of the last cave monasteries in Lo and Tibet. No written record exists for the construction of Luri Gompa. Luri Gompa and some other monasteries are affiliated with the Kagyu sect (one of the sect of Buddhism) which are the true masterpieces. Lining the walls are a series of 14th century paintings, which depict India Mahasiddahs. Some are real individuals and others are mythical.
