Shoton Festival 2020
Time & Location
About The Event
Join all of Lhasa in the early morning for the annual unfurling of the giant thangka, picnic with nomads, try and a-tune your ears to Tibetan opera, and explore the markets, temples and southern towns of Tsedang, Gyantsye and Shigastse.
Our 'Shoton Festival' journey places you right in the middle of all the festivities, sharing with the locals in celebrating this week-long, ancient Buddhist festival.
And you will explore some of the Tibetan side of Kathmandu.
