For all Tibetan-speaking populations, Tibetan New Year is a major holiday. It is celebrated for 15 days, but the main celebrations occur during the first three days. During the first day of the festival, changkol is made. Changkol is a special New Year dish based on pastry and dried cheese. On the second and third-day folk dances by people in creepy masks are performed as well as other traditional celebrations. Join the festival to see the wide and overwhelming Tibetan culture!
