For the mountain views, Naurikot couldn't have been positioned any better. To
the west is the towering Dhaulagiri along with its awe-inspiring icefall and
to the east is the Nilgiri range. So you can have your morning breakfast with
gorgeous views of Dhaulagiri while a contemplative evening tea can be had with
the sun gently fading away from the Nilgiri slopes.
The village is also interesting as a gateway to one of the holiest places in
Lower Mustang, the caves of Guru Sampo. This natural cave is revered as a
place where Guru Rimpoche meditated just as he did in at least a million other
places along the Himalayas and in Tibet. Even though you aren't particularly
religious, you should nevertheless consider paying the cave a visit for the
gorgeous flowers of spring and amazing mountain views of fall.
Naurikot also has a Bonpo Monastery which the caretaker claims is older than
the one at Lubra which is dated at around 1200 AD.
