One of the most remote places on earth, Mustang in Nepal's Himalayas, is also one of the last places with a pure Tibetan Buddhist culture, which has hardly changed since the 14th century. The people and especially the monks of Mustang are struggling to preserve their cultural and spiritual identity.
