View of Upper Mustang from Kagbeni, Nepal

The magnificent view towards the remote kingdom of Upper Mustang shot from the village of Kabeni. Upper Mustang is still a very isolated area located in the himalayas.

I would have loved to visit but the permit is difficult to obtain and costs 500 US$. Unfortunately (in my view at least) the Chinese government is building a highway through the region which will totally change one of these last untouched kingdoms in the world.
