Follow the ancient trade route once dominated by the Kingdom of Lo. Few regions offer this spectacular mix of cultural and geographic treasures. The spectacular eroded canyons of the trans-Himalayan landscape are a kaleidoscope of colors set beneath the distant snow-clad peaks of the Annapurna Range. Throughout this arid colorful landscape are the shrines, monasteries, caves and villages built by the devout Buddhist population. The highlight of the region are the monasteries and caves around the fortified walled city of Lo Manthang.
