Wangkor Festival

Wangkor Festival
Held before they gather in their crops, for this festival the people express their wish for a good harvest. The festival lasts for one to three days. In splendid attire and having colorful flags in their hands, the people tie highland barley and wheatears into a bumper-harvest pagoda with khatag scarves. Then they walk around their fields while beating drums and gongs and singing songs before a horse racing. After the festival they begin to harvest their crops.
