Festivals, Events and Seasonal Reasons to Visit

  • 01

    June 28th - Tashi Lhunpo Thangka Display Festival: Every year, the citizens of Shigatse and beyond gather at the Tashi Lhunpo Monastery to witness the unveiling of three great Buddha thangkas. A thangka is a Buddhist painting on cotton or silk that has a strong religious significance and is often displayed on special occasions, such as festivals. There are a number of these festivals in Tibet but the one which takes place at Tashi Lhunpo is one of the most impressive as this was once the seat of the Panchen Lama.
