The village of Kagbeni in the Kali Gandaki valley, at the base of the Annapurna mountains in the Himalayas (Nepal)

This is probably one of the most remote region I visited. It takes 2-3 days to reach this place by motorbike, from Pokhara.

The valley upstream from Kagbeni (in the back, behind the village on this photo) is part of the Mustang region, and special permits and guides are required to continue North towards the upper Mustang. Those permits are rather expensive ($500 for 10 days), and they require that you hire a local guide. This was unfortunately out of my budget.

I wanted to continue the road up to Muktinath (no special permit required), but I was sick, quite tired, and the road from Kagbeni to Muktinath is really hard (very steep with a lot of loose gravel), so we stopped at Kagbeni.
