Tiji Festival

If you are looking for a discovery of ancient monasteries, caves in remote areas and amazing landscapes, this trek is yours! Since 1992, the Mustang’s forbidden Kingdom and ancient Wall City is open to trekkers. The Tiji Festival is very pleasant because of its remoteness and peacefulness. Here, the inhabitants still believe that the soul of a man is as real as oneself. Despite the hardness of the almost treeless landscapes, with a countryside alike Tibetan plateau, beauty and happiness flourishes within the inhabitants and villages.

The Tiji annual Festival lasts three days, and focus on the Tiji myth: the story of the deity Dorje jono who battled against his demon’s father to save the Mustang’s Kingdom from its doom. His father wreaks havoc on Mustang through water shortage. In this arid land, water was the most precious treasure one may have. Dorje Jono defeated the beast and banished him from the Mustang.
