Upper Mustang, Forbidden Kingdom - Annapurna Circuit, Nepal

Looking into the "Forbidden Kingdom" of Upper Mustang from the 600-year-old Tibetan Buddhist gompa (monastery) in the village of Kagbeni. The village used to be a stop on the Tibetan trade routes. Now it's the jumping off point for treks into the restricted area of Upper Mustang (tourist permits are $700). The wind blowing up the Kali Gandaki river valley was intense. Taken on the eleventh day of the trek around the Annapurna Circuit. Read more about our Annapurna Circuit trek. © www.uncorneredmarket.com
