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 Sights

A lot of history abides in the valley of Kathmandu. Kirtipur is an ancient township in itself. Built in 1099, this place holds a brave and proud history. Kirtipur was the very first place where Prithvi Shah ever made an attack in 1768. The primary sights in Kirtipur are the Bagh Bhairav temple and Chilamchu stupa. Charming streets lie here along with temple squares and creative houses while providing a gorgeous view of the valley. The oldest school, Tribhuvan Universtiy, can also be found at the very bottom of the hill. For a walk on the unique side, take the Heritage Walk through various historical sites that are hardly visited by tourists.... Read more »
