Tiji festival Upper mustang in Nepal

Mustang is an ancient Himalayan Kingdom which lies in the northern central part of Nepal and at the top of the Kaligandaki River. Upper Mustang consists of two distinct regions: the southern part and the northern where the languages, culture and traditions are alike to those of the Tibetan people. Mustang’s culture has descended in its pure form from the Red Hat sect of Tibetan Buddhism (contrasting to the Yellow Hat sect to which the Dalai Lama belongs.) and it remains one of the only spots on earth where Tibetans live according to their own unimpeded traditions. We will walk amidst stunning sculpted rock formations backed by snow-capped peaks. We will visit homes, villages and active monasteries, and the welcome will be warm.
The Tiji Festival in Mustang's ancient walled capitol city of Lo Manthang will be the highlight. 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 our 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.
On the 9th and 10th days of the fourth lunar month the lama dances of the grade practice of the Sabdun Phurba are performed.
When the ministers of the king Uddayan try to burn Guru Rinpoche and his consort alive he transform the flames of the pyre in to a lake.The form he anumed when he emerged in the centre of a lotus with mandrava is known as Guru Pema Dorje Tsal-the Guru with lotus and Vajra.
