Lingering melody of the plateau


Over 20 years ago, when there was no train to Lhasa, we traveled by truck through the Tanggula Mountain Pass into Xizang. It was then that we first heard about the Nagchu Horse Racing Festival, which is believed to be the largest event of its kind on the entire Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, attracting thousands of enthusiasts who cross mountains and rivers every summer to participate. Yet the horse-racing festival is just one of numerous fascinating traditions still kept alive by the Tibetan people. Wanting to draw a broader picture of the region's unique culture and traditions, we eventually chose as additional subjects the Jiuhe Dro dance and eagle flute.
