Prepare yourself for a festival unlike any you've experienced before by visiting Nepal during the Tiji Festival, a colorful adventure full of dancing, music, local food, and smiling faces. With the gorgeous mountain backdrop & friendly locals, guests will make memories that last a lifetime.

What to expect?

  • Tiji Festival is a colorful festival celebrated in the Lo Manthang region of Upper Mustang. This festival holds a significant place for the truest mountain people who follow Tibetan Buddhist culture. The Tiji Festival is celebrated for three days every year at the beginning of the harvest season. This spring- renewal festival marks the celebration of the triumph of good over evil. In a local ritual, they celebrate this festival to chase away the demons.

  • During this festival, people gather together and express themselves in different ways with traditional colorful customs with hideous masks, dance, and music. They show the drama of a deity winning over a demon, believing that the demons are chased away from their places. They chant their prayers and remember their god. Even the monks wear their traditional clothes and present themselves in vibrant colors; red, yellow, & blue, and with their multicultural flags which makes the entire ambiance appealing and lively.

  • The Upper Mustang Tiji festival trek coincides with the combination of the dramatic Himalayan desert pairing wonderfully with the magnificent views of the massive Dhaulagiri, Annapurna, and Nilgiri ranges as the backdrop. You'll love exploring the cultures & lifestyle of the people that inhabit this region.
