Caption

The Gedong Festival is one of most important events for Tibetans. Each year according to the Lunar calendar, Tibetans gather to witness these religious mask dances. Monks in colorful costumes depicting deities, ghosts and animals perform a mask dance as an offering to the gods. This dance, called Qiangmu in Tibetan, is both a mystical and festive dance the people believe can please the gods, drive away bad luck and celebrate the season.
