QuickTime is a plug-in that allows for audio, video, and increased interactivity. If you can see
the animated boxes at left, the plugin is already installed. If you do not see
the boxes, you can install the QuickTime plugin or
take the low-tech version of the tour.
It wasn't until 1950 that the first European set foot in Mustang, a hidden Tibetan kingdom in the northwest of Nepal, and it was officially closed to other foreigners until 1992. In the map at left, click on #1 to begin a self-guided tour of this fascinating realm high in the Himalayas. All photos were shot in fall 2000 and summer 2001.
(Note: Some of the photos in this tour are panoramas that require the QuickTime plug-in.)
