    Ongkor is a traditional festival for Tibetan farmers to celebrate the bumper harvest, which is popular among Lhasa, Shigatse, Lhoka and other agricultural places of Tibet Autonomous Region.

     

    Ongkor means surrounding the farmland in Tibetan. The festival has more than 1500 years of history, and it’s listed as a national intangible cultural heritage.

     

    Ongkor Festival, also known as Bumper Harvest Festival, is held annually between May and June of the Tibetan calendar. Since crops ripen in different times at different places, the exact time for celebrating the Ongkor Festival varies from place to place in Tibet.
