Tiji Festival Jeep Tour - 12 Days

The Tiji Festival Jeep Tour for 12 days starts from Jomsom on 4WD drive and takes you to the remote area of Nepal and almost to the border of Tibet.  With its gentle Buddhist people, medieval city centers strewn with temples, outstanding national parks offering a plethora of wildlife and some of the worlds most outstanding natural landscapes, Nepal has proven irresistible to travellers for decades.

A highlight of a visit to Lo Manthang is the Tiji Festival, a three-day ritual known as the ‘chasing of the demons’, held here during the summer. Centered on the Tiji myth, which tells the story of a deity named Dorje Jono who battles against his demon father to save the Kingdom of Mustang from destruction, Loba villagers converge on the capital to participate in masked dances, offering prayers and celebrating a new season.
