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.

    Tiji Festival 2016


    I did Tiji festival trek with my friends. We were 5 in the group from Lithuania and booked this cultural tour with Wilderness Excursion. Pradip from the agency did reception and welcomed us at the airport with great smile and took us to selected hotel at Thamel (Samsara Resort) Rahul Tamang guided our group of five trekkers on the 17 days Pokhara tour - Kathmandu to Lo Manthang to experience the Tiji festival - fantastic! No any difficulty for us that our guide always went the extra miles to ensure all in our group had an enjoyable journey. A professional, organized and VERY reliable team - thank you Wilderness Excursion for making this first time trekker's journey an experience of a lifetime!
