Ancient caves

The ancient caves found on the Upper Mustang resemble the time when there were no houses for settlement. Those caves were used back in time by our forefathers to defend themselves from attacks and used as settlement places until houses were built after decades.
During the time of the Tibetan war, it is believed that people stayed under the cave for so long that it was impossible to capture them.
