Mustang – The Walled Forbidden Kingdom , is the quite fascinating destination for all surrounded by northern snowy mountains,  dotted with ancient forts, walled medieval villages and monasteries rich in Buddhist art, offers its few visitors a year a fascinating glimpse into this remote enclave of Tibetan Culture. A deliberate policy of cultural and environmental preservation has meant that Mustang remains one of the world’s most special trekking destinations. Entry is limited and special trekking permits are required. 12 to 15 days should be allowed for Upper Mustang and it may also be combined with the Jomsom trek. Best time to visit is late March to November. A reasonable fitness level is required.

Although it was open for the tourists in 1990, the tourist arrival here started only in 1992. Speedily blowing gushy air, barren desert, mound, and settlement inside the rocky cave, celestial houses made of local design & Buddhist Stupa and houses fluttering with its religious standards are the special peculiarities of Mustang.

Lomanthang was the fort inhabited by 181 houses. Lomanthang has been encircled by 856- meter long wall. This fort was encircled in this way to defend from the frequent attack of the then Jumla state by that time.

Tiji, the special festival

TheTiji festival a three-day ritual known as “The Chasing of the Demons”, centered on the Tiji myth. Tiji tells the story of a deity named Dorje Jono who must battle against his demon father to save the Kingdom of Mustang from destruction. The demon father wreaks havoc on Mustang by creating a water shortage which, in this extremely arid land, is the most precious life-sustaining resource. Dorje Jono eventually defeats the demon and banishes him from the land.

Tiji is a celebration and reaffirmation of this myth. Throughout the festival the events and story of the myth are re-enacted. The festival is timed to coincide with the end of the dry season (late spring) and ushers in the wetter monsoon season. 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.

Being in one of the most restricted place on earth is so unreal. I had a great time over there. Meeting local people and getting to know their living style, culture and warm food in local homestay was really exceptional experience. I will surely come back to Nepal. Thank you Sisne for your great service and excellent Nepal experience.

I am glad I chose Sisne Rover Trekking for my trip to Upper Mustang. I went to Nepal with my wife and found Sisne via Lonely planet. We really enjoyed the trekking route and the facilities provided by the company. Thank you for making this trip memorable.A+++
