Hidden Treasures Discovered in Mustang

Lying on the Tibet-Nepal border, the region of Upper Mustang is a restricted area of Nepal which only a limited number of outsiders are permitted access to each year. In 2007 a team led by a local shepherd, and including seasoned mountaineer Pete Athans and US Himalayan expert Broughton Coburn, reached the caves and had some time to explore its ancient hidden treasures.
