14Days Sichuan-Yunnan Overland Tour with Litang Tibetan Horse Racing Festival
Tour Type:Private Tour
Tour Code:287
Highlights: The Litang Festival is associated with the ancient Zubirishao Festival, the festival of praying around the mountain, on the Tibetan calendar. When the wild flowers and grasses are at their peak, 10 days of horse racing and festival are held to show devotion to the sacred mountain and celebrate the harvest. This is the most important festival of the grasslands. In the 1960's, the local government fixed the dates for the festival as August 1 to 7. During the festival, people gather from all over the Maoya Grassland dressed in the finest clothing with colorful tents and their best food. The grasslands are a sea of tents as the people prepare for seven days of relaxation and festival. The races themselves include long distance, trekking, riding under the belly of the horse, standing upside down on top of the horse, shooting from horseback and other breath-taking feats! Besides horse racing, there are Tibetan operas, dancing, fashion shows and other cultural events.
