The Forbidden Kingdom of Mustang, known as ‘Roof of the world’ is located in northern Nepal and is surrounded on three sides by Chinese held Tibet. Mustang is one of the oldest civilizations on earth. Here the medieval world is uniquely preserved from the influence of modern technology. A land covered with small villages, ancient monasteries, friendly people and breathtaking scenery, Mustang's wealth was derived from being a major trading hub on the Kali Gandaki / Thak Khola trade route between Tibet and Nepal, which reflects the rich Buddhist culture, history, laws and customs. The Tiji festival is a three-day ritual known as "The chasing of the Demons" and it is centered around the Tiji myth. Tiji tells the story of a deity named Dorje Jono who must battle against his demon father to save the Kingdom of Mustang from destruction. The demon father wreaks havoc on Mustang by creating a water shortage which, in this extremely arid land, is the most precious life-sustaining resource. Dorje Jono eventually defeats the demon and banishes him from the land.

Ama Dablam Expedition
Mount Ama Dablam, arguably the most beautiful mountain in the Khumbu Region (south of Mt. Everest) stands at a staggering 6,856 m. It dominates the skyline with its colossal body covered with fleece white snow and looks unforgiving because of its jagged ridges. For many trekkers, the view of Ama Dablam is more stunning than Everest itself. Needless to say, Ama Dablam is always looked upon with a biased view owing to its beauty and majesty. For many mountaineers (including the famed Sherpa climbers), an expedition to conquer Ama Dablam requires technical prowess and perfection. According to experts, almost all climbs across other parts of the Himalayas become a shade easier if you have tried your hand at Ama Dablam.
