Rare Bon Traditions
Home to what is thought to be the last Bon monastery in Nepal, Lubra has preserved its traditional way of life and practice of the ancient Bon religion.

Lubra is a small village in one of the most beautiful locations in the world. I would have been content sitting quietly in the village or on nearby hill all day just taking it all in. My day however involved petting a few baby goats, bringing supplies to a monastery on top of a large hill, having tea with the monk's wife, visiting all the animals of my homestay just to say hi, waiting for the goats to arrive then attending to them, and last sitting by the stove waiting for the food to finish before having a standard local meal. This type of trip is not for everyone, but if prefer to experience local culture and make meaningful connections, then there could be nothing better.
Mustang is home to people from Gurung, Thakali and Thakuri ethnicities. Secluded from the world, these villagers have learnt to be self dependent, live in altitude and survive in the harsh winters.
