Tibetan people in southwest China celebrated the Tibetan New Year, also known as the Losar Festival, on Sunday. The coincidence of the Tibetan New Year falling within days of Chinese Lunar New Year this year has created a stronger festive atmosphere in the area. The festival is celebrated with family reunions, traditional dinners, exchanges of gifts and offerings of prayers at monasteries.
