This Region Was first of all explored by Tilman in the 1950s. Till date very few westerners have explored the virtually untouched villages of Nar & Phu or climbed the many 7000 m peaks surrounding them. Kagyud monasteries are worth a visit, though tracking down the keys from the four different caretakers can eat up a large chunk of the day. Photos of the current (16th) Karmapa are common if Nar (the Karmapa fled Tibet in 1999, traveling to India via Mustang and Manang). The Guru Choling monastery is at the top of town, the lower Samten Pelgye Ling has some remarkable old statutes, and the Kunsel Denchen a large Phallus painted on the wall and an unusual off-center floor plan.

One of the three resident ani (nuns) will show you around the main prayer hall, adorned with some fine ceremonial trumpets and photos of the current Karmapa (the monastery was founded by the 10th Karmapa.
