It will a long, tiring drive, and along the way we passed Tsarang and Ghar Gumba to visit the oldest monastery in Mustang. The Tiji Festival Jeep Tour for 13 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.

Upper Mustang known as Lo is a remote Himalayan province situated north of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges which is being surrounded by the Tibetan plateau on all sides expect the south which links with Nepal.

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.

We used Nepal Tours for our 13 days Upper Mustang Jeep Tour during the Tiji festival 2018. Kulendra, the company owner was very accommodating and managed all of our arrangements from Kathmandu brilliantly. On the 4wd jeep drive from Jomsom to Lo Manthang and back to Jomsom, our guide Raju was also superb and every day on the drive went extremely smoothly. I would highly recommend Kulendra to anyone thinking of any professional trip to Nepal.
