Kagbeni, a medieval mud village

The century old village of Kagbeni is the gateway between Lower and Upper Mustang and as far North it is possible to go on the Annapurna Circuit without a permit. Atmospheric, with mud houses clinging onto each other, the main income is trade to and from Tibet as well as cattle.

The absolute limit to where one is allowed to go without a permit is the village of Tiri, about an hours walk north of Kagbeni. In 2014 a major road construction project was ongoing almost cutting the village, which may otherwise have been atmospheric, in half.
