Lo Manthang was founded around 1450 by the son of the legendary Ame Pal, who conquered and united the small kingdoms in Upper Mustang. A high wall, 300 m long and 150 m wide in the shape of an L, has served as protection against bandits, warriors and the ferocious winds. It's never been extended, archaeologists see this as a prove that the village hasn't changed much in the last 500 years. 1'200 people live in the 140 houses which are connected by narrow alleys which go beneath houses at a few spots. Most houses are two-storied, houses of upper class can be higher but by far the biggest buildings are the monasteries and the palace.
