On This tour, we will experience the high Himalayas festival by riding to the festival destination in Nepal. On this tour, we will reach the kingdom of Lo, in a remote and isolated land hidden in the valley of mist. It is one of the most preserved regions with a restricted valley to explore and a military sign and camp to secure this precious valley of Nepal.

This place also provides another privilege of availability of Nepal- China border but still not opened for tourist till date.

With the open of 4x4 roadways since 2010 lots of riders have visited till Lower Mustang and enjoyed the beautiful nature of Muktinath. Though it was known to the world first by Annapurna Circuit trek time has changed the nature of travel and the objectives of Travel. Now we can take this opportunity to enjoy the Upper Mustang valley during Tiji Festival. We can start this ride from Kathmandu or Pokhara and later riding to Mustang Valley. We will go from Kalopani, Muktinath, Ghami, and other destinations to reach this upper valley. We will enjoy the festival for three days before we take a downhill ride to the modern city.
