Owner description: Gue village lies along the Reckong Peo-Kinnaur to Kaza route. After a few kilometres from Sumdo, on the right hand-side a road goes towards the Gue Village, 8kms off the main track & Gue to Kaza is 80kms.A SUV or a Bullet would best do the job. There is no place/hotel to stay at Gue, so its an enroute Kaza trip off the track. The mummy found at Gue is 550 years old. It was found by the I.T.B.P. at Gue village while digging for a border post along china.I suppose its the only mummy found and kept in India & open for public visits.

The mummy of monk Sangha Tenzin, was found inside a tomb at Gue village about 6000 metres above sea level. Gue villagers have known about the mummy since 1975, when an earthquake struck the region and brought down a part of the tomb. It is in sitting position.
It was later discovered by ITBP forces working on Indo China Border and then only it was public.

Local Gue villagers are very nice people and ready to help you any time.

When we reached there and found the room to be locked, then a little boy and his little friends helped us to the key man.



A must see MUMMY.

The mummy, identified as that of monk Sangha Tenzin, was found inside a tomb at Gue village in the cold and remote Spiti district of Himachal Pradesh, India about 6000 metres above sea level.
Gue villagers have known about the mummy since 1975, when an earthquake struck the region and brought down a part of the tomb.
However due to the remoteness of Gue, in a desolate mountainous area close to India's border with China – restricted to the public and under the control of the paramilitary Indo-Tibetan Border Police – the mummy's existence has remained under wraps.

The localsl of the Gue Village are really nice people & they go beyond their duty to help U. When we reached Gue at the Temple where the Mummy is kep,we found it locked !...after travelling for 3 hours from Lhanza to the Village that too on such dangerous roads reached Gue, we could not find the person who held the keys to the Mummy-house. Upon knowing our situation the village men came together to find that person who held the keys and eventually found him around the corner of the village in a matter of minutes...after that we were offered tea-snacks by the village men at their houses even though we were strangers to each other...the kids were very happy when I gave them the Mango Flavoured sweets I took from Kolkata...their smile genuine and we were able to have a good look of the Mummy because of them
Immemorial Journey & the villagemen of Spiti Valley :)

i was on a biking trip and visited gue from sumdo on way to tabo, pin valley and kaza.

the mummy is the only one i know of which is in sitting position and is kept enclosed in a glass box in a tiny white room......it was discovered in the village of gue by the ITBP ( indo tibetan border police )...the restoration is in progress and once completed the mummy will move to a larger display hall....the view from the hill top is breath taking.

the care taker is a helpful man - he opened the room and waited for as long as we were there ( 20 minutes ) while patiently answering all our questions.

After living Nako, we took a most dangerous detour of 12 km one way to Gue for that famous Mummy, a bigger temple kind of structure is being built by "eTV" there where mummy would be kept, saw the hair of Mummy but not sure if they are still growing as claimed by many.
Just thrilled after visiting this. Kids were too much curious about this mummy.
Want to visit again this thrilling place.
