NOVA | Lost Treasures of Tibet | PBS

Duration: 54:07 (Full Program)
Program: NOVA #3006

Mustang (moo-stahn), one of the last outposts of Tibetan culture, is so isolated and protected that no Westerner set foot inside its borders for centuries. But in the early 1990s, this untouched society set high in the Himalayas opened its borders for the first time, exposing an ancient world's dazzling sacred relics long damaged by the elements and neglect.
