Tiji Festival of upper Mustang is a unique cultural event started centuries ago while the area was an independent kingdom of Lo people.  Tiji is celebrated to remark the victory of gods over demons. The festival showcases chasing away those demons and bad spirits from the kingdom and its walled capital Lomanthang. Tiji Festival takes place on the third month of the Tibetan lunar calendar or usually in the month of May or June.  Next year in 2020, it will be observed from 19 to 22 May.
