The Autumnal Equinox is regarded as the Harvest Festival of China since 2018. President Xi points out that the setup of the festival is in order to highlight the foundational position of the “three rural” work, which is a far-reaching event.
September 23, which is also the Autumnal Equinox of this year, 2000 people of different ethnic groups gathered together at Songpan Village, Songpan Town, Lhasa City, singing and dancing to celebrate the joy of harvest.
In addition to the performances, the display of agricultural and livestock products is the major highlight of the Harvest Festival. Variety of agricultural and livestock products, handicrafts and some other special products were presented in the harvest festival.

Dear Ms. Ho***,
Greetings from Helen at Budget Tibet Tour and welcome you to join our 10 days Mt. Everest & Namtso Lake group tour. For your questions: 1. Your kids are suitable for this tour. Travelling in Tibet is as safe for kids as it is for their parents. While the high Tibetan plateau may be the highest place on the planet, very often, the kids that visit this region are more adaptable and have fewer problems than their parents. We also have arranged wonderful Tibet tours for many families with kids such as a tour to EBC for a family with a 3-year-old son, a 9-year-old girl and a 11-year-old boy, they did have fun in Tibet and there is no problem for them. Or you can take some medicine under the guidance of doctor to prevent high altitude before enter Tibet. 2. If kids travel with you, we'll offer some discount for them, please check your email and find more detailed information. Thanks & Regards
