In the ancient times, this was a place for trade between Nepal and Tibet, especially for trading salt. It was the restricted place until 1991 and from then was reopened by the government for the tourists.  The place still preserves the ancient monasteries and caves.  The ancient architecture and craft have been well preserved in these monasteries and caves. The four-storey palace of the ancient king is the highlight of this place. The population here still speaks the Tibetan language. People also follow the traditional cultural practices of Tibetan religion. The place is also popularly known as “The Forbidden Kingdom”.
