Overview of Tiji Festival Trek

Tiji Festival Trek is a trip program to experience the trans-Himalaya culture along with Tiji Festival in Upper Mustang. Tiji Festival is a Tibetan Buddhist Festival that Lho-Manthang of Upper Mustang celebrates. The festival of Tiji consists of three-day of Tibetan rituals.

The celebration of Tiji is based on a myth of a deity called Dorje Jono who must fight against his devil father to save the Kingdom of Mustang from destruction. The word Tiji comes in existence from two terms “ten che” which means the hope of Buddha Dharma prevailing in all worlds. Hence, one should go for this trek since Tiji Festival is effectively a spring renewal festival.

Highlights of Tiji Festival Trek

  • Trek along the Kali Gandaki River valley in the shadows of Dhaulagiri and Annapurna
  • Pass through white-washed mountain villages
  • Walk alongside colorful Buddhist shrines and temples
  • Experience life of the fabled walled city of Mustang – Lo Manthang
  • Experience vibrant Buddhist celebration of the Tiji Festival with dancing and traditional music at Lho-Manthang for 3 days.

The trekking trail to Upper Mustang is a spectacular walk through Himalayan terrain. It wildly contrasts with the lush fertile green hills and several river valleys located to the south of the Annapurna range. Mustang is a barren landscape locates at the rain shadow region behind the Himalayas. Furthermore, it has few patches of green fields dotting a lunar landscape but boasts a remarkable spiritual heritage.

The trail passes through the world’s deepest gorge at Dana. Furthermore,  it follows the shadows of the Himalayas’ most iconic mountains, before arriving at the fabled walled city of Lo-Manthang.  The ultimate goal of the trek is 3 days of dancing at the Tiji Festival. During the festival, the town square fills with characters clad as demons in flamboyant robes and hideous masks dancing about, slashing at the air with their swords and intoning spells over onlookers.

The landscape is tough and rough, the weather is windy and the altitude can be hard going. But Oriental Journey’s will take care you fully by the expert hands of its team. The team includes Mountain Leader, Sherpa, and very helpful porters.
