Gamba County Festivals and Activities

Most Tibetan festivals are full of the color of  religion. In addition to annual large-scale worship rituals to Buddha and Buddhist masters, Tibetan people will also hold a series of festivities associated with religious life and agricultural production consisting of religious festivals and folk ones. There are almost a hundred festivals in a year, some of which even last for ten days.

  • The Ongkor Festival(望果节): Ongkor festival is usually in the end of summer. Meaning of the festival is "good wish for harvest", literally "make circle around the field". During this festival, one person from each family in village participate on kora in the fields. People in procession dress traditional clothes and play different roles - warriors, riders, drummers and prayers or monks. You can enjoy many different disciplines of traditional Tibetan singing, dancing, art of debate, dressing and praying in this festival. Recently this festival might be known as "Horse race festival".
