From the end of July to the beginning of August is the harvest season of Xizang, and the Wangkor Festival is usually held before the harvesting. Carbanang Village, Chushur County, Lhasa City, capital of southwest China's Xizang Autonomous Region, has well preserved the traditional ceremonies of the Wangkor Festival, and has held related activities for many years.


The annual Wangkor Festival was held from July 24 to 27 in Carbanang Village. During the festival, villagers gathered together to celebrate and pray for good harvest.


This year's festival included traditional equestrian performances, archery on horseback, Hada collection on horseback, speed horse racing and local opera. The villagers dressed in holiday costumes, prepared barley wine, butter tea, and sweet tea. They sang and danced, having a very jolly time.


Over 20 participants and their horses took part in the event. Their superb performances were followed by waves of applause. After the race, Carbanang Village awarded prizes to the best riders.
