Mustang Tiji Festival Trek

Tiji Festival, a three-day ritual known as "The chasing of the Demons" and it is centered on the Tiji myth. Tiji tells the story of a deity named Dorje Jono who must battle against his demon father to save the Kingdom of Mustang from destruction. The demon father wreaks havoc on Mustang by creating a water shortage which, in this extremely arid land, is the most precious life-sustaining resource. Dorje Jono eventually defeats the demon and banishes him from the land. This festival falls in the end of May. We, Wilderness Excursion Pvt. Ltd operate Tiji Festival Trekking tour in Lo Manthang of upper Mustang every year with best service and most competitive package cost. The official date of Tiji Festial 2018 will be decided after Tibetan New Year this year.
