Mustang, Nepal //
A hidden kingdom in the Himalayas of Nepal, the Shangri-La of Tibetan Buddhism and the ancient Tiji Festival

To the sound of beating drums, blowing horns, sounds of cymbals and prayers, monks in red robes marched to the palace square. This was the signal for the beginning of the Tiji Festival, which was celebrated once a year in Lumantang, the ancient capital of the Mustang Kingdom, which until recently was closed and closed to people from the West.

ThisTrek's story 11 days old in a wild land that is one of the last strongholds of Tibetan Buddhism, among villages whose houses are made of white mud bricks, whose windows are beautifully colored and whose flat roofs are arranged in a masterly order with firewood and piles of hay for the cattle. This is also the story of people who survive in some of the harshest living conditions and their faith is painfully innocent.
