The Manang area

The Manang area lies at the foot of the spectacular Annapurna mountain range. This is a remote mountainous area in Northern Nepal, where a pure and deeply religious culture has been preserved until the present day. Travel guides compare it to paradise however, the combination of extreme weather conditions and high altitude means that life is a constant challenge to the local people.
Although the lower valleys have recently developed a some tourism, the Upper Manang Valley with its villages and its small monastery are too remote to benefit from this.
Lama Sönam Rabgye had his childhood up in the Manang Valley and this has the initial focus for Himalaya Karuna’s activities.
