The small region of Mustang closed to westerners until 1992, is an enchanting land of windswept vistas, red-walled monasteries, and feudal towns. This tiny kingdom was not only a major corridor of the trade from the 1400’s to before the Chinese occupation of Tibet but also figured importantly into early Buddhism in Tibet. Local legend tells the tale of the great founder of Tibetan Buddhism, Padmasambhava, who before building Samye (the oldest monastery in Tibet) came to Mustang to stand guard against and do battle with the evil powers out to destroy Buddhism. The temple of Lo Gekhar in eastern Mustang was built by Padmasambhava after his triumphant battle and still stands guard today.
