Tiji Festival In Mustang Nepal

The Tiji Festival of ancient city Lo Manthag is the highlight of this trip. Thousands of men, women and children participate in this annual elaborate re-enactment of the Tiji myth, telling of a deity named Dorje Jon who battles his demon father to save the kingdom from destruction. It will be our unique privilege to witness the same color, costume, dancing and ritual that were displayed by these people in this place more than six hundred years ago according to the religious mythology. Visit Himalaya treks have been organizing Mustang Tiji festival trip every year. Mustang is an ancient Himalayan Kingdom which lies in the northern central part of Nepal and at the top of the Kaligandaki River. Upper Mustang consists of two distinct regions: the southern part and the northern where the languages, culture and traditions are alike to those of the Tibetan people. Mustang's culture has descended in its pure form from the Red Hat sect of Tibetan Buddhism (contrasting to the Yellow Hat sect to where it is believed that the Dalai Lama belongs.) As well as it remains one of the only spots on earth where Tibetans live according to their own unimpeded traditions. The trail leads us towards the stunning sculpted rock formations backed by snow-capped peaks. We will visit homes, villages and active monasteries, and the welcome of locals will be warm.
