Mustang

 

Mustang is a remote region of Nepal, actually a part of the Tibetan plateau that was absorbed by Nepal in the 1700s, retaining semi-autonomous status until the end of monarchy in Nepal about a decade ago. When I first went there, almost nobody had ever been. For example, my permit to enter the region was the 64th ever issued. There were no good maps, no guidebooks. I was led by a pair of horsemen in Tibetan robes with red yarn braided into their hair, as we travelled from fortified town to fortified town. Of course, I sketched and painted as I went, in some cases, being invited to sketch where photographs were forbidden.
