Book / Enquire About Tour Package
In August, when the summer is at its height, the annual opera performances of the Shodon (Yogurt Banquet) take place in the Norbu Lingkha (the Summer Palace) in Lhasa. As day breaks over the mountain top and while filmy mists still linger upon the poplar trees, people are ready and waiting outside the brass-studded gate of the Norbulingkha. As the great gate swings open the crowd surges in, women in their sleeveless tunics, men in their long boots, and skipping children, Once the summer palace of the Dalai Lama, the Jewel Park's high surrounding walls used to keep the common folk out and the meadows, ponds, rockeries and pavilions within the park were only thrown open to all during the Shoton when everyone gathered in the park to enjoy performances of Tibetan opera. Time has passed and now Norbu Lingkha has become the "jewel" of the people, open for the enjoyment of everyone.
