According to Guy Shachar on his itinerary of Manaslu:

Lho is dominated by a large Gompa, that includes a home for more than 150 children that get their education here. The Gompa and its dormitories are located on the slopes of a hill above the village. The top of the hill is a recommended viewpoint to first (and some would say best) view of Mount Manaslu. Manaslu is seen here at its best, with its “fishtail” twin peaks. It is highly recommended to view Manaslu as it fades during sunset, but better during sunrise, when the morning glow shines on its top. You don’t have to climb all the way to the hill top – the area above the Gompa gate is a perfect viewpoint.

There are several camp sites and lodges in Lho.
