Tiji Festival is very famous among locals of Upper Mustang and also people from the western world as it has preserved the long back Tibetan Buddhist culture and tradition alive through this event which has attracted many traveling agencies to come up with special holiday packages to observe the yearly celebration of Tiji festival at Upper Mustang. The Tiji festival also called ‘Ten-che’ means ‘’prayer for world peace’’. The three-day festival event known as “chasing of the Demons” is centered on the Tiji myth. During this festival, monks dress in traditional colorful clothing and perform the mask dance which is believed to bring good energy by defeating the evil spirits in Upper Mustang. The festival is celebrated based on two myths according to locals, the first one is about a deity called Dorje Jono. He battle against his demon father to save the Mustang from destruction and secondly tells one of the incarnations of the Lord Buddha who saved the Mustang from a devil who wanted to destruct by making drought and storm in this land.

The Mustang Tiji Festival generally occurs at the end of May/June based on the lunar calendar that is predicted by the Tibetan Buddhist calendar.
