Trip Overview

Highlights

Trekking to Tiji Festival can be done during the months of May-June in the Forbidden Kingdom of Mustang, Tiji Festival of Lo-Manthang is one of the most important and colorful three days rituals known as "The Chasing of the Demons" centering on the Tiji myth. Tiji tells the story of a deity named Dorje Jono who must battle against a demon to save the Kingdom of Mustang from destruction. The demon wreaks havoc on Mustang by creating a water shortage which, in this extremely arid land, is the most precious life-sustaining resource. Dorje Jono defeats the demon and banishes him from the land. Because of this myth, Mustang is considered as a legendary destination.
