5/37.- Litang Horse Festival, Tibetan skill rider


The festival takes place every year. It starts at the beginning of August, and lasts more than a week. Every five years a special festival takes place, which is even more spectacular. The last one took place in 2005, the next one will be in 2010.

The Tibetan in the picture is taking part in the skill competition. Riders have to catch one of the scarfs lying on the ground.
