Dengba 登巴节

Tibetan mid-summer festival.

It is celebrated around the full moon day of the seventh lunar month in many Tibetan communities, the actual day can vary a bit. There used to be special dances on this day, but apparently they are not held any more. Villagers go to the temple or a sacred site to burn incense followed by a communal meal.

Festival held according to lunar calendar on 农历7月15.
