The early visitor of Mustang- Lo Manthang was Michel Peissel a well renown writer of popular book “Tiger for Breakfast” is also known as the first westerner to witness the Tiji festival in 1964. He had explained in his book “Mustang” A lost Tibetan Kingdom "We found ourselves in the midst of a festival in which over a thousand men, women and children were taking part. Before us spread a sea of weather-beaten brown faces that contrasted with those of the beaming, dirty little children who clung like grapes upon the rooftops of the houses." He also furthered describes as  "The scenes I witnessed were so extraordinary and so unexpected that I dared not believe my eyes and even today I have some trouble in believing in the reality of what I saw that day."
