Lo Manthang, is the capital of the former kingdom. Only in 1950 was it officially declared part of Nepal. The years following the Chinese invasion of Tibet proved to be some of the most difficult ones in Mustang’s history. Large numbers of Tibetan freedom fighters set up their camps there and attacked the nearby Chinese troops, putting Nepal in a delicate situation. In the 1970s the Dalai Lama asked the guerillas to stop their fighting, the Nepalese government arrested and sentenced some of the leaders. It takes some effort to discover the scenic and cultural beauties and mysteries of such an area. One route is to follow the Kali Gandaki from Jomosom northwards for two days, then taking the west route to the capital Lo Manthang and from there back to Jomosom over the holy site of Muktinath.
