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.
