Discovery Channel - Guge: The Lost Kingdom of Tibet

NZ Television Premiere: Guge: The Lost Kingdom of Tibet

Discovery Channel – Sunday 27 May, 7.30pm

Seven days’ journey by car going west from Lhasa, Tibet is a desolate desert area known as Khyunglung Valley. It was here that the Guge Kingdom flourished for 700 years – an extraordinary Christian and Buddhist civilisation rich with art and culture – that vanished mysteriously in the 17th Century. Until now, archaeologists have not been able to solve the mystery of Guge’s demise, but a recent discovery may unlock the enigma of who the Guge people were and what happened to them 400 years ago.
