[edit] Information

For years, adventurers from all over the world have searched for the mythic paradise of Shangri-La and have found little...until now. In the legendary kingdom of Mustang, a remote corner of the Himalaya previously off-limits to outsiders, a team of explorers and scientists climbs for the first time into human-carved caves thousands of years old. They find priceless 14th-century wall paintings, ancient human remains and a centuries-old hidden library of sacred texts that may reveal some secrets about the mythic paradise Shangri-la. Explore sacred Buddhist caves and witness as experts look back into time as they uncover centuries-old manuscripts and stunning wall paintings that have remained undisturbed for years. Why do they exist, and what can they reveal about the history of Tibetan Buddhism? Ancient human remains, magnificent wall paintings and a hand-inked library of over 10,000 manuscript pages are among the treasures that await them. Has the real Shangri-La finally been discovered? Will it survive the erosion and visitors that the future is bound to bring? National Geographic journeys deep into Nepal in search of the real Shangri-La. A National Geographic Television production is association with France 5
