Natural beauty in Mustang Nepal

Posted by Anup Baral August 9th, 2016 :
Upper Mustang is a remote region in the Himalaya sandwiched between China and Nepal. It is part of Nepal, but is culturally Tibetan Buddhist. Westerners have only been allowed to travel there, on foot or horseback, since 1992. Now a road is being constructed across the mountains all the way to the Tibet border. It will increase economic and educational opportunities, but there are fears that Mustang's unique Tibetan culture may be lost. A team from Foreign Correspondent drove the length of the road to bring back a glimpse of the place many believe is now more Tibetan than Tibet itself.
