Lo Manthang, the old capital, can be reached within four days and no less than one additional day ought to be spent here to get the sights and sound of this interesting walled settlement. Horses are accessible for you to quench your thirst for entertainment. The rerouting trail can either take a similar course while entering or, as an option course; the eastern bank of the Kali Gandaki might be taken after.
