Tiji Festival Trek 2020

The fascinating annual three-day Tiji Festival is the biggest and the most auspicious festival in Upper Mustang region of Nepal. This three days festival celebrates to mark the victory of good over evil. This festival commemorates the victory of Lord Buddha's incarnation Dorjee Sonnu over a demon called Man Tam Ru a vicious creature feeding on human beings and causing storms and droughts. The Tiji festival usually takes place around mid May and lasts for 3 days and during the festival the monks from Lo Manthang's "Choedhe" monastery perform ritual dances during the celebration. And also we can see an ancient Thangka painting of Guru Rimpoche Padmasambhava during the festival. Tiji festival is the only time when this painting is on public display.

Trekking to Upper Mustang during the Tiji festival trek is the best for you if you are looking for some spiritual experience along with trek. There is no fixed date for this festival but as mentioned above that this 3 days festival normally happens in May and festival dates are chosen on the basis of Tibetan Calendar. The festival is held on the premises of the king’s palace in Lo Manthang.
