Sichuan Festival Tours

Sichuan Festival ToursHistoric and abundant Sichuan is also a harmonious land with plenty of ethnic minorities living; it boasts China’ only habitat for the Qiang People in northern Sichuan, as well as the largest habitat for the Yi People in Liangshan Yi Autonomous Prefecture plus the second largest habitat for the Tibetan People in Garze Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture. Rich and characteristic ethnic minority cultures brought up a diversified Sichuan with many interesting and fascinating folk festivals which comprehensively showcases Sichuan people’s wisdom on life, religion, diet, costume and etc.

There are lots of authentic festivals and ceremonies all year around, no matter in the hot summer or freezing winter, you can find a festival to experience. What we recommend you are not some sponsored commercial festivals popularized in recent years but some authentic folk festivals that have been in history for at least hundreds of years, such as, the Water-Releasing Festival at Dujiangyan Irrigation Project, the Litang Horse Racing Festival in western Sichuan Tibetan area, Mountain Worship Festival at Mt. Siguniang, Buddha Exhibition Festival at Langmusi and Jiarong Tibetan Festival in Danba County.
