Mustang Tiji Festival

Mustang has lured trekkers for many years, and has only recently been opened. In March 1992, the 'forbidden' kingdom of Mustang was opened to the outside world. Tiji comes from the words "Ten Che" meaning "the hope of Buddha Dharma prevailing in all worlds" and is a spring renewal festival that also celebrates the triumph of good over evil. Tiji festival is a three-day ritual as well as “The chasing of the Demons” that centers on the Tiji myth. The myth tells of a deity named Dorje Jono who must battle against his demon father to save the Kingdom of Mustang from destruction. The demon father wreaked havoc on Mustang by bringing a shortage of water (a highly precious resource in this very dry land) and causing many resulting disasters from famine to animal loss. Dorje Jono eventually beats the demon and banishes him from the land. Tiji is a celebration and reaffirmation of this myth and throughout the festival the various scenes of the myth will be enacted It is a time of prayer, chants and dance. Donned with colorful costumes and masks, lamas perform about 50 different religious dances. Visitors and devotees gather from throughout the region to view the spectacle and tourists are always welcome. The festival normally held’s at the need of dry winter/spring season effectively a spring renewal festival and will usher in the wetter monsoon season (the growing season for Mustang). The story and event of the myth are reenacted during the festival to celebrate the triumph of good over evil.
