Kagbeni, the Gateway to upper Mustang, lying just 10km to the north of Jomsom. The medieval look still prevails with traditional mud houses adorned with colorful prayer flags along a small dark alley with stony pavements and chortens. North to the Kagbeni lies the previously forbidden Kingdom of Lo, Upper Mustang. A very old monastery, Kagchode Thubten Sampheling Gompa, dating back to 1429 resides in Kagbeni. Kagbeni is also a famous religious side for Hindu pilgrims. Apart from being the gateway to Upper Mustang and Muktinath, a very less travelled route from Kagbeni leads to the Upper Dolpo region.
