Mysterious Ranchung Chungsi Cave Upper Mustang, Nepal

In my spirit the Ranchung Monastery- Chungsi cave is a very important monastery in Mustang, its isolation could preserve the ancient culture. Many Buddhist devotees visit this cave to worship and meditation from around the world. Many travel trekkers well-known there is a walking trail easy find from Samar to Syangboche but worst to visit this natural cave and better make the overnight in Syangboche, naturally trek to Chungsi Cave trail is not easy lots up and down elevation. I highly recommend you better to visit this cave while going to Upper Mustang Trek Lo Manthang. Because if you have the trek itinerary thru YARA-GHARA-LURI-CAVE you will not get a chance to visit this Buddhist spiritual cave after Lo Manthang.
