Mustang: Lives and Landscape of the Lost Tibetan Kingdom

Hidden in the rain shadow of the Himalaya in one of the most remote corners of Nepal lies Mustang, or the former Kingdom of Lo. Hemmed in by the world's highest mountain range to the south and an occupied and shuttered Tibet to the north, this tiny Tibetan kingdom has remained virtually unchanged since the 15th century. Today, Mustang is arguably the best preserved example of traditional Tibetan life left in the world.

This essay features a selection of images from the book, Mustang: Lives and Landscape of the Lost Tibetan Kingdom with a foreword by His Holiness the Dalai Lama, and is sold by the Vanishing Cultures Project. Proceeds go towards supporting cultural initiatives in Mustang.
