Housing the only naturally preserved mummy of India, Gue is also known as the 'Village of the Lama Mummy'.

The locals have now shut the mummy from public viewing due to fear of theft, but if you're lucky, you can enter the chamber and take a close look at Sangha Tenzin, who has been resting peacefully in a squatting position for 600 years..
