Vibrant and colorful, Chinese festivals are illustrative of this
vast country's many cultures, religious traditions, seasonal
celebrations and secular customs.
At the Gyalthang Horse Festival, ethnic Tibetans from the most
remote areas of Yunnan gather for a special annual event to
participate in horse races and a show of traditional acrobatics on
horseback. This spectacle recalls a way of life that has existed
for centuries in this area and on the Tibetan plateau. Expert
horsemen from the Kingdom of Kham in Eastern Tibet compete for
prizes and glory, while locals in heavy turquoise and colorful
hand-woven brocade create a scene of timeless splendor.
