Development of Tibetan Traditional Sports

5,000 years ago, there were human beings living on the Tibetan plateau. Those founded frescos about horseracing, wrestling and archery could show Tibetan's sports activities in ancient times vividly.
Tibet's Traditional Sports

Tibet's traditional sports are the product of the autonomous region's particular natural environment and the people's customs.
Outdoor Sports Popular in Lhasa

Summer as the wonderful season in Lhasa with humid air and increased oxygen content is the best season for outdoor sports.
Sport in Lhokha

Sport activities among the Yarlung ethnic group have a long history. As early as 1,000 years ago, there were sports meets involving mountain climbing, stone throwing, yak and horse racing, and shooting.
Hua'er Meeting

Hua'er, ("flower" in English), is a kind of folksong that Tibetans enjoy very much. It is resonant, exuberant, and very tuneful, full of rich local flavor and the simple pleasures of life.
Horse Race and Archery

Horseracing and archery, popular all over Southwest China's Tibet autonomous region, began in 1408, when the king of Gyangtse gave a decree marking the period from April 10th through 27th of every year for prayers and a sacrificial ceremony for his grandfather, with entertainment offered on the 28th.
