The legend of Mustang goes back to Guru Rimpoche when he slain down a demon who had been plaguing Mustang after a rigorous fight over the mountains and hills of Mustang, of course at last, Guru Rimpoche prevailed. The landmarks in Mustang are filled with a distinctive red color stressing that those were the blood marks of the demon after he was slain by Guru Rimpoche.
