The Tiji festival, which locals call Tenchi Festival is a monk dance festival celebrated every year in Upper Mustang, Lo Manthang. According to Tempa Chhirim, Tenji: commonly pronounced Teeji or Tiji means “ Prayer for World Peace” Upper Mustang, is a place highly influenced by Tibetan- Buddhism and the only untouched preserved safe zone for Tibetan Buddhism. According to His Highness Dalai Lama, “Authentic Tibetan culture survives only in exile in a few places like Mustang, which has had long historical and cultural ties with Tibet.” The main priest of the Tiji Festival is one of the Top 10 Buddhist priests in the World.

The festival is only celebrated in indigenous Lo-Manthang, Upper Mustang. Over the Mustang during the Tiji festival time, monks dressed in elaborate costumes and masks perform dances and rituals that are supposed to drive away evil spirits. The Tiji festival dances are all organized by the Choedhe Monastery and led by the monks, which belong to the Sakya sect of Buddhism. The monastery is headed by a Rimpoche, the Top 10 Buddhist priests in the World. About 65 monks from Lo Manthang, Nhenyul, and Chhosyer reside in this monastery. They practice religious and traditional dances for months just to perform at the Tiji Festival.

The Tiji Festival begins with the opening of the 400-year-old banner of the respective Lord who conquered the demons and brought peace. The Tiji Festival is held in the town’s main square. On the first day, monks integrate the dances and complex ceremonies to lead the world towards peace, evoke God, and purify the ground for further days of the Tiji Festival. The second day is lit as different dances are performed with drums, masks, attitude, swords, and the ragging of demons. The king of Lo comes to the town’s main square and settles on the throne for the ongoing Tiji Festival. The third day is all about winning over demons and destruction and welcoming peace.

Kali Gandaki Gorge, the Deepest Gorge in the World

Kali Gandaki Gorge is the narrow valley between Mt Dhaulagiri, the 7th-highest mountain in the world, and Mt.Annapurna I, the 10th-highest mountain in the world. Kali Gandaki Gorge separates the major peaks of Dhaulagiri (8,167m / 26,795ft) on the west and Annapurna I (8,091m / 26,545 ft) on the east. When one measures the depth of the canyon by the difference between the river height and the heights of the peaks on either side, the gorge is the world’s deepest.

During the 19th century, it was termed Kora La (La means pass) which was highly used as a Tibet-India Trade Route. Besides, Kali Gandaki Gorge is within the Annapurna Conservation Area and part of Annapurna Circuit, the famous trekking route. Kali Gandaki River source coincides with the Tibetan border and the Ganges-Brahmaputra watershed divide. It flows through a deep canyon south of Lo Manthang and widens up as it approaches Kagbeni. Then, continues southward passing Jomsom, Marpha, and Tukuche to the deepest part of the gorge about 7km south of the Tukuche peak around Lete. Further, the Kali Gandaki River flows through Dana and Tatopani toward Beni. You can also find the valuable Saligram fossils in the bank of Kali Gandaki which is regarded as Lord Vishnu per Hindu mythology. Tiji Festival Jeep Ride Tour enables you to encounter and observe the deepest gorge in the world.

Dumba Lake at (2900 m/9515 ft)

Dumba Lake reflects the pureness and beauty of nature and its surroundings through its crystal clear and pristine water. The lake is fenced with prayer flags and the water of the lake is used by the local stupa as a religious offering. Some myth is related to Dumba Lake which makes it religiously valuable along with its natural attractiveness. It is believed the lake turned red and after religious ceremonies by Tibetan Buddhists, it returned to be as greenish and clear as it was. Locals do not fish at the lake and come for prayers whereas travelers visit Dumba Lake to enjoy the tranquility as well as a view of the mountains and Jomsom Bazaar. 

Explore Apple Garden at Marpha, Thakali Village

Marpha village made Mustang widely famous by supplying apples and apricot products in Nepal. Though Mustang widely practices apple and apricot farming and produces products like juice, wine, and dry fruit, Marpha is solely famous for its Apple and Apricot garden along with its typical Thakali culture. Marpha village took the hype due to the beautiful mixture of culture and nature. Marpha is the residence of the Thakali (one of the indigenous communities of Nepal) community which showcases the ancient traditions yet managed to introduce the apple business in the Mustang Region.  When you choose Tiji Festival Jeep Ride Tour, you grab the opportunity to explore the famous Apple Garden of Nepal on the way to Upper Mustang/Lo-Manthang. Not just at Marpha village but as you enter the Mustang district you can observe the apple garden on the roadside till you reach Kagbeni.

Muktinath Temple at (3800 m/12,468 ft)

When you pick the Tiji Festival Jeep Ride Tour, the package ensures you the tour of Muktinath Temple situated at an elevation of 3800m/ 12,468 ft. Whereas, in the Tiji Festival Trekking you may not be able to explore Muktinath Temple as it requires much time and energy to climb up the hill and visit Muktinath Temple.

Muktinath Temple is a Lord Vishnu temple sacred to both Hindus and Buddhists. Muktinath means a place of liberation. Muktinath Temple is situated on the lap of the Himalayas offering a heart-pleasing view of mountains, hills, and settlements. It has 108 holy water streams and two holy ponds and bathing in them is believed to be blissful, valuable, a blessing, and a way of salvation. Pilgrims believe it makes them pure. The temple's surroundings are peacefully decorated with streams and trees which showcase the unique spot of religious belief and nature’s creation.

The jeep rides on unsurfaced roads or tracks made of materials such as sand, gravel, riverbeds, mud, rocks, and other natural terrains.

    Cultural and Scenic Adventure!!!!

    The Upper Mustang Tiji Festival Jeep Ride Tour was an extraordinary blend of cultural immersion and breathtaking landscapes. The journey through the remote Mustang region was an adventure in itself, with rugged terrains and stunning mountain views. The highlight, of course, was the Tiji Festival, where we witnessed vibrant traditional dances, colorful costumes, and ancient rituals in the medieval town of Lo Manthang. Our guide was exceptional, providing rich historical context and ensuring our comfort throughout the trip. The local food we enjoyed along the way was delicious and added to the authentic experience. This tour offered a unique glimpse into the fascinating culture of Upper Mustang, making it a truly unforgettable journey.

    The Upper Mustang Tiji Festival Jeep Ride Tour was an amazing experience! The comfortable jeep ride made it easy to navigate route. Witnessing the vibrant Tiji Festival in Lo Manthang was a cultural highlight, with colorful dances and rituals that left us in awe. Our guide was knowledgeable and made sure we didn't miss any important details about the festival or the region.
