Horse racing festivalsDuring the month of August over 10,000 people will cross high passes of more than 4000m by foot, horse and jeep to make their way to Nakchu Racecourse, to run their horses, eat, drink and enjoy themselves during the annual horse festival holiday. This racecourse, at 4500 m, is undoubtedly the highest located racecourse in the world. Crowded along the hillsides are white tents housing monks, pilgrims, nomads, and city dwellers who come from Lhasa and all over the urban and farming communities of northern Tibet. During this time of festivities and dance, everyone dresses in their finest and most colorful clothing and adorns themselves with chunks of gold and turquoise jewelry. After the races, we will camp by Lake Namtso, Tibet's largest saltwater lake, which is also considered one of its most sacred.
