It needs 6 days trek to reach Lomanthang from Mustang. But the interesting is that the roofs of human civilization's developments are found here since the historical era. This place is the main hub of the Buddhist Lama culture. The world renowned Buddhist as well as the Hindu pilgrimage Muktinath is situated at the altitude of 16,000' high.

The legend is that ancestors of King Jigme Parbal Bista established the settlement here in 14th century.

Lomanthang is the fort inhabited by 181 houses. Lomanthang has been encircled by 856- meter long wall. This fort was encircled in this way to defend from the frequent attack of the then Jumla state by that time.
