Xaitongmoin 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.
Horse Racing Festival
Few days before the opening ceremony of Horsing Racing Festival, traditionally dressed and decorated Tibetans living on this immense grassland gather at Xaitongmoin County to set up their tents around horse racing track, hundreds of tents stand and are packed there within a few days, as if a crowed temporary city suddenly appeared on grassland.
