Lo Manthang is the only one living walled city of Nepal guarded by armed policemen to defend the town from the enemies where the 22nd king of Mustang, Jhigmi Palber Bista is ruling in the present. We arrange the special visit with the king. There are many chortens, Mani walls and monasteries. About 4000 Lobas people are in upper Mustang, most of them temporarily migrate to lower land Pokhara and Kathmandu during the winter time but very few people stay there to take care of their livestock and houses. Tichi is the popular festival of Lo Manthang that usually occurs in May and the festival is celebrated for over three days on the occasion of killing damon's son by Dorje Sonnu.

His Majesty the Government of Nepal issues the limited number of permits with special fee for the trekkers to protect the fragile ecosystem of Mustang. There must be at least 2 persons in a group. The trail is very gentle with scenic view. Maximum highest point of the hiking trail is only 3950m so any healthy person can easily make it but requires the sunglasses. There are seasonal trails along the river valley that may vary the standard itinerary plus minus one or two days.
