Why we have a building also in Pokhara? Because of the extremely cold Winter in Upper Mustang.

We are a Mustanghi Monastery, but, due to the School, we have another building in Pokhara (the one so close to the new airport).

We have both Mutanghi kids and kids from other ethnic groups: Tamang and Gurung.

Many of them are not used to extreme cold Winter in Upper Mustang.

Plus, you have to think that in Mustang there is no way to have a heating system. Traditionally the cooking fuel was, and still is, yak's dung.

If you want a gas cylinder for cooking you have to bring it all the way from Pokhara. So it costs a lot!

The land we want to buy to move the Pokhara situation has to be in the Pokhara area for two reasons:

1) to guest the kids in the cold seasons

2) to grow crops to feed our people both in Mustang and in Pokhara.

If you ask yourself what happen to the Pokhara building and the ancient Sun Cave Monastery when the kids are not there, the answer is: one or two of us stay and live in the, otherwise, empty buildings. That's why we have Mustanghi Mastiffs!
