Jharkot is nestled in a valley just below the holy town of Muktinath in Mustang.

At 3200 meters (12,500 feet) above sea level, the terraced farmlands and the rolling pastures filled with wildflowers are a sight not to miss.

Thorung La Pass from Jharkot.  The white fence of Muktinath is in the distance.

The New Hotel Plaza.   Our home away from home in Jharkot.   The hotel is our base of operations for 4 or 5 days while we explore the area from Muktinath to Jhong and beyond.

And the Danger Dog Blog wouldn't be complete with at least one cute Nepali Dog doing what they do best - sleep!

More tomorrow.

I wish I could have posted all the spectacular photos from this area. The views were magnificent. And this was considered their off-season.
