Shoton Festival

Shoton Festival

The Shoton (Sour Milk Drinking) Festival takes place in the early days of the 7th Tibetan month. This turns out to be the most lively festival of the year. During celebrations, the Lhasans visit lingka woods. On the 30th day of the 6th Tibetan month, the Buddha Painting Displaying Festival is held in the Zhaibung Monastery. Wearing white and blue facial masks, Tibetan opera troupes hailing from various parts of Tibet come to perform for the occasion. On the first day of the 7th Tibetan month, the Lhasans gather in the Norbu Lingka, where they drink sour milk and watch the Tibetan opera performance. This festival lasts for several days in a row.
