Upper Mustang Cultural Heritage of Lo Tso Dhun
PDF File Size: 103 KB | Download   
In the absence of a coherent overview on the cultural heritage of Upper Mustang, the UNESCO Office in Kathmandu has prepared this study in order to provide a synopsis on what makes Upper Mustang so unique. Considering the specific nature of the region, this study tries not to see the areas’ cultural heritage and its conservation in isolation, but rather as linked to the natural environment, the need for development, and Lo’s inhabitants, who are ultimately the basis for any success or failure of conservation activities. In the light of the current period of transition (with the development of access routes from both Lhasa and Kathmandu) this study aims at defining an integrated framework for the cultural conservation and development of Upper Mustang. Acknowledging that aspects of Upper Mustang are in transition, the possibilities for conservation are defined within the context of the need for change and development. The framework proposed has been prepared based on discussions and interactions with various stakeholders, both national and international experts and local people.
