Mustang: Land of Tibetan Buddhism
Mustang is a country frozen in time. Closed to foreigners for more than thirty years, this tiny feudal kingdom high in the Himalayas has existed in virtual isolation from the rest of the world. In 1992 restrictions were eased, and the long-forbidden kingdom was cautiously unlocked. Clara Marullo and Vanessa Boeye were among the few foreigners who made the arduous trek over the mountains to discover this fabled land. This book is a riveting account of their experience, and a unique view of the society that exists there. With a wealth of magnificent color photographs, it is also an evocative visual record of some of the most dramatic and beautiful landscapes in the world.
