This is a fully supported camping trek including all camping equipment, food and meals. The Tiji Festival in Lo Manthang is one of the most important and colorful in Mustang. Held annually to chase away demons, it is a time of prayer and dance as monks don colorful costumes and masks and perform ritual dances watched by spectators (dressed in their best clothes and jewelry) who have gathered from throughout the region.
The long forbidden Kingdom of Mustang has always exuded an air of romance.
Mustang is the arid region at the end of the Kali Gandaki, beyond the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges. Lower Mustang is inhabited by people related to the Manangis whilst in northern Mustang (the ancient Kingdom of Lo ), language and traditions are almost purely Tibetan. With a rich and complex history with written records dating back to the 8th century Lo, like Dolpo, was once a part of the western Tibetan region of Ngari and maintained its status as a separate principality until 1951.
It is a land of barley fields and pasture and vast expanses of gray and yellow rolling hills eroded by the wind that howl across the area most afternoons. Sun baked bricks of pale mud are used for almost all construction, including the walls and palace of Manthang .
