Horse Racing is quite popular in Tibetan Area. Yushu Horse Racing Festival is one of the top three horse racing festivals in Tibetan area. The other two are Ngachu Horse Racing Festival and Litang Horse Racing Festival. The Yushu Horse Race Festival takes advantage of the warm weather, so the valley floor has lush green grass suitable for long-distance horse races and tent camping.
