Mustang Tiji Festival Trek 18 Days

The Mustang Tiji Festival Trek is one of the unique treks that should be scheduled well ahead of time. If you take too long to make a decision, you will miss the year's deadline. Unlike other Nepal treks, the Mustang Tiji Festival Trek is a pre-planned tour with set departure dates. We are unable to hold the Tiji walk twice or three times a year since the festival does not wait for anyone.
Mustang Tiji Festival Trek, as the name suggests, is a rewarding trek to Nepal's Mustang district during the Tiji festival celebration. It allows you to roam through Upper Mustang's captivating scenery and participate in the Tiji Festival, one of the region's most important celebrations.
