The Tibetan culture is unique in the world. A Tibet tour is certain to be one of the most unforgettable experiences of your life. Below we have listed the major traditional Tibetan festivals, so that you may better plan your tour, as well as learn more about the Tibetan people.

Deeply influenced by Tibetan Buddhism, Tibetan festivals either have strong religious aroma or they are completely religious. Throughout history, under the harsh natural environment and hard working conditions, the people living on the snowy land yearned for a better life through their own efforts, with the God’s mercy and with the Buddha’s protection. It is the festivals that offer opportunities for them to express their prayer to deities, Buddha and nature, during which they amuse the Gods and themselves as well.
