It also has fascinatingly colorful festivals and religious events which add a special touch to Tibet's unconventional beauty. If we go on to look at Tibet's festival and events calendar, we will be surprised to see how jammed packed the whole calendar is with a variety of events.
If you thought that all of the festivals of Tibet have religious undertones, you are mistaken. It is true that most of the events are held along those lines but, there are events that are purely dedicated to merriment, arts, and sports. This speaks volumes about the people of Tibet who know how to celebrate and enjoy life in spite of the harsh geographical conditions and labor they are exposed to. So it can safely be said that the festivals of Tibet have something for everyone.
Since there is such a long list of festivals that adorn Tibet's festival calendar, it is not possible to list all of them together. However, the greatest event in Tibet is the Tibetan New Year, a colorful affair along with religious rituals involved. Other popular festivals and events in Tibet include the Saga Dawa Festival, Shoton Festival, Ganden Festival, Litang, Nagchu and Gyantse Horse Racing and Archery event, Harvest Festival and so on.
