Each Spring, the Tiji Festival Trek takes place in Lo Manthang. The Tiji Festival is a spring-renewal party that ushers in the monsoons while celebrating the triumph of good over evil in a ritual locals call “the chasing of the demons.” Tiji comes from the words ten che, meaning the “hope of the dharma prevailing in all worlds,” the message Guru Rinpoche carried through this region over a thousand years ago. .

This three-day ceremony is lit up with colorful custom dress, dancing, music, and reenactments from the story of a deity and his demon father. According to legend, the demon father kept water from falling in the already arid land. This dark sin was answered by Dorje Jono, his deity son, who soundly destroyed the demon and banished him from the domain forever. During the Tiji 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.

I went to Nepal for several times over a period of time but never used a travel agent like this time and I am so glad I did it and made the right choice. Kulendra, the proprietor of this company personally looked after our tour ensuring our safety, comfort and requirement.

We had reasonable hotel rates but best in the locality and the rooms selected were good with views. We made friends with the team especially with Kulendra, Kumar. I felt so close. Nepal will live very close to my heart. If you are looking for a family trip something off the beaten activity and tour Nepal meaningfully, Nepal Tours, doubtlessly, is your choice.
