Tibet Festival Tour

Tibet is an enormous region, as large as Western Europe and it has hundreds of thousands years of history with a very rich culture, tradition and an extremely deep believe in Buddhist religion thus Tibet has various different kinds of festivals according to the Tibetan lunar calendar. The Tibetan lunar calendar is calculated each year by astrologers from the Mentsikang ( Tibetan traditional medicine hospital ) in Lhasa. It is based on a cycle of 60 years, each of which is named after one of 12 animals and one of five elements in combination. A calendrical year normally contains 12 months, but the addition of an extra intercalary month for astrological reasons is not uncommon. In General Tibetan lunar month runs about two months behind the western calendar. If you can not arrange your time during our Tibet festival tour program, We can customize your Tibet trip with another festival. Many festivals are traditionally held throughout the Tibetan calendar.
