Losar is the biggest holiday for Tibetans. Losar (Tibetan New Year) takes place sometime between mid-January and mid-February each year. Many Tibetans make a pilgrimmage to the capital city of Lhasa. The picture above is taken from the roof of the famous Jokhang Temple. During Losar, tens of thousands of Tibetans walk around the Jokhang and prostrate in front of it. Many other Tibetans will walk koras around holy lakes and mountains while others will go and seek blessings from lama's. Losar is a great time of year to be in Lhasa. Pilgrims from all areas of Tibet can be found walking the streets. For most of the year Lhasa is overrun with Chinese and foreign tourists. Losar is the only time of year when Lhasa actually feels like it is in Tibet.
