  • Enjoy a unique trek in the Himalaya mountains.
  • Take part of the vibrant and colorful Tiji Festival.
  • Discover the Upper Mustang Region of Nepal.
  • Explore Buddhist shrines, temples and traditions.


Would you like to enjoy one of the most beautiful treks in Nepal and participate in one of its most colorful festivals? Then join us on this Upper Mustang Trek during the Tiji Festival in May 2023 and discover the full color of the Himalayas.

Upper Mustang is a special place in Nepal that preserves many Tibetan traditions and lies on the border with China. Every year, visitors trek to this unique location to experience the local Buddhist culture and visit monasteries, pilgrimage sites, and local towns on the way. Furthermore, the mountain views and culture are also one of a kind. Every year, the Tiji Festival, a special 3-day Buddhist ceremony that reenacts the chasing out of demons from the sacred land of Lo Manthang, takes place in the region.

On this trek, we will get to both explore Upper Mustang and participate in the unique festivities of the Tiji Festival. Furthermore, we will spend 1 night in a local home, 1 night in a monastery guest house, and one night at a tea house, which will give us a real feel of the local culture. Of course, you will need to be physically fit, as we will be hiking for 4 to 5 hours a day. The Tiji festival of 2023 will take place on the 16th, 17th, and 18th of May of 2023.

So, are you ready for an exciting Upper Mustang trek and Tiji Festival? Then book your place now and join us!

Or, if you prefer, you can join us on a shorter Pikey Peak trek in the Everest region and get a taste of the Himalayan way of life.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
