Published on September 17th 2023


In the shadow of the mighty Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountains sits the village of Lo Manthang. This ancient walled city in Nepalโ€™s Upper Mustang region was once the capital of the Kingdom of Lo. Foreign visitors were banned until 1992 and the kingdom ended in 2008. Si and Hank went to the Himalayas on an epic adventure from Kathmandu to this forbidden kingdom.
