Munsiari, as Pangtey elucidates, was a checkpoint to reach Tibet and Nepal. It was the main trade hub for all sorts of goods starting from rock salt, jaggery, cotton wool to aluminium to motorbikes. Tibet was the main benefiter and year after year the Indian- Tibet relationship grew stronger. East India Company had a major role in uplifting Munsiari as a trade market and saw ways to bring it to the limelight:1. Education for kids2. Road to Tibet for trade.In 1962, when China invaded Tibet the borders were seized and the business of trade barred. So, the government of India provided the people of Munsiari with reservation quotas. This made them leave the city to live a modernized life. Upon realising the emigrating population and culture loss, he took the initiative and efforts of collecting the artworks and what he thought was a diminishing reflection of their roots and decided to collect and make a museum of all such artworks and cultural heritage.Mr. Pangtey also highlighted how Munsiari got highlighted due to its beautiful spots and scenic landscapes when no government officials cared about and helped in developing the town. He also highlighted the main places of attraction in the town and the people from where I can get the correct information of the places too.Places Of Attraction
