Nepal Adventure Point offering the Tiji festival trip in Mustang every year. The Tiji Festival in Mustang's ancient walled capital city of Lo Manthang will be the highlight. A thousand men, women and children participate in the annual elaborate re-enactment of the Tiji myth, telling of a deity named Dorje Jon who battles his demon father to save the kingdom from destruction. It will be a unique privilege to witness the same color, costume, dancing and ritual that were displayed by these people in this place more than six hundred years ago. However, towards the mid 19th century, political changes in Nepal affected Mustang, and many age-old traditions were abolished including Tiji. Although the main ceremony in the city’s square no longer took place, Choede Gompa, the central monastery of Lo Manthang, continued to celebrate the festival with the monastery without economic support from the people. This has been practiced since 1963, and still continues today, despite the main festival having being revived.

All the interested clients are requested to register their trip at the Nepal Adventure Point before the 4 weeks period of the trip date. Further information contact us: nap@wlink.com.np

Kathmandu Nightlife

Tom and Jerry’s Bar is known as the best bar in town. This place is never empty and the best time to be here is from 5pm – 8pm for Happy Hour and free popcorn. With interesting memorabilia reminiscent to Hard Rock Cafes and several pool tables to play on, you can even drink cocktails here if Nepali beer isn’t your thing. Food can be ordered from Narlgila Restaurant, which is directly upstairs; and, if you wish to go someplace else to keep drinking when Tom and Jerry’s closes at midnight, Jump Club is right around the corner....
