The festival of “Tiji”' or 'Teechi or Teeji' is the celebration and affirmation of the myth of Teeji that stands for "The chasing of the Demons". There’s a fascinating story regarding the myth, which tells of a deity named Dorje Jono who must battle against his demon father to save the Kingdom of Mustang from destruction.
The Word Tiji has been derived from the word “ten che” meaning the hope of Buddha Dharma prevailing in all worlds and is effectively a spring renewal festival. This is the most celebrated festival in Upper Mustang that continues for three days in the late spring and early summer. This festival held in Lo-Manthang, capital of Upper Mustang, where thousands of people flock to observe and participate in the festival. Lo-Manthang is also known as “walled city” is a perfect place to visit during the spring season to observe the magnificent beauty of Upper Mustang and distinguish Tibetan Culture.
