Tibetan New Year-Losar

No Trips in your shortlist

Back

In ancient times when the peach tree blossom, it was considered as the starting of a new year. Since the systematization of the Tibetan calendar in 1027 A.D., the first day of the first month became fixed as the new year or Losar. On the Tibetan New Year's Day, each home will open its door with prayers and fetch the first bucket of water of the year. People will greet each other with well-meaning wishes- "Tashi Deleg". Losar is a colorful week of activities including Tibetan drama, pilgrims making incense offerings and other folk activities such as wrestling, weight throwing, tug-of-war and horse-racing. Tibetans dressed in their finest crowding the streets. It brings together family from far & near for prayer and celebration.
