During the next several days in Rebkong, you will attend the Shamans’ Festival. This is a Bon religious festival with different 
rituals and activities that vary widely from town to town. All 
activities are presided over by one or more Lhawas or shamans, 
who will go into trances. Many different dances are performed, all with their own meanings and intents. There is also drum & beating, and the ritual piercing of cheeks, tongues and backs, as a sacrifice to the God and as a show of strength by the young men of the villages. One important aspect of the festival is the offering of 
group prayers through the dances for peace, good harvests, and
plentiful water. Another aspect is the commemoration of past 
battles and the resolution of the war between the Tang Dynasty 
and the Tibetan warlords. These festivals are also occasions for the village shaman to demonstrate a show of his power, and remind the villagers of their duty to their temple and their community, as well as to scold those who have strayed from the religious path.
The festivities begin, and you’ll see the most famous shaman performances and trances of the festival. The shamans have practiced and perfected their art and religion with more than 15 years of practice and devotion. Each night you will return to Rebgong.
