Mustang: A Trekking Guide (With Maps)
Mustang: A Trekking Guide (With Maps)
Description
INTRODUCTION

In October 1991 the Nepalese government announced that all of Nepal was open to trekking groups (but not to individuals), allowing us the long awaited opportunity to visit the upper reaches of the Kali Gandaki valley known as Mustang. Only a handful of foreigners have ever visited this isolated region. It is to be hoped that the limited number of trekkers allowed into Mustang will also limit the amount of adverse change.

The ancient Kingdom of Mustang was attached to Tibet in the 14th century although it remained an autonomous dynasty. Later it was annexed by Nepal, but the people still remain predominantly Tibetan. Untouched by the outside world or the remain active to preserve this magnificent trans-himalayan kingdom, with their unrivalled thankas, mandalas and deities.

In this wild lunar landscape of unreal colour and beauty, ruggedly carved mountains reach up to deep blue skies, while icy peaks glimmer majestically to the south. Vast and barren ridges extend to the northern horizon making one feel like an insignificant dot on a timeless landscape. A journey to Mustang is a journey of remarkable contrasts. Stark Tibetan landscapes contrast with lush rice fields and Hindu shrines with cliff hanging monasteries.

For our journey we must extend our warmest thanks to Ravi Chandra, the staff and crew of Ama Dablam Trekking who made our adventure truly outstanding.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
My marble statue of Durga arrived today in perfect condition, it's such a beautiful statue. Thanks again for giving me a discount on it, I'm always very pleased with the items I order from you. You always have the best quality items.
