Lower Mustang – a wide valley of the Kali Gandaki river, squeezed on one side by the eight-thousander Dhaulagiri and on the other by the Annapurna mountains. It is not for nothing that this valley is said to be the deepest in the world. Here you will see interesting Buddhist culture in the form of distinctive villages and local monasteries – gomps.
