Secrets Of Shangri-LaStreaming Video - 2013
Explore sacred Buddhist caves and uncover centuries-old manuscripts and stunning wall paintings that have remained undisturbed for years. We begin with breathtaking images of an enchanted world set in a remote and sacred landscape. Palaces emerge from ochre plains alive with yellow mustard and swaying wheat. Colorful monasteries stand against a backdrop of the highest mountains on Earth. This is the Kingdom of Mustang, a hidden corner of the Himalayas previously off-limits to outsiders. Hundreds of caves punctuate the sacred landscape and little is known about why they were carved out, how they have been used, and what lies inside the mysterious caves. For years, adventurers from all over the world have searched for the mythic paradise of Shangri-La and have found little - until now. Has the real Shangri-La finally been discovered? Will it survive the erosion and visitors that the future is bound to bring?
