Chortens, Tangbe

It did not take long after we entered in Upper Mustang before we discovered our first large chorten decorated with playful red and white clay colors so typical of Mustang. This chorten was standing with clusters of other structures and ruins high above the Kali Gandaki river in Tangbe. Its bulged dome was protected by a roof supported by pillars which is charasteristic of Mustang and Dolpo, a neighbouring region. We discovered this group of chortens by surprise, after a walk within the narrow streets of Tangbe. This was a wonderful experience, a gift of the local spirits to welcome us in Upper Mustang.
