7 Days Yunnan Minority Festival Tour - Torch Festival

Includes: Kunming, Dali & Lijiang

    During the festival, torches are erected in front of houses. At the entrance to the villages, a grand "torch tower," made of pine branches and dry firewood and standing more than 20 meters high, is decorated with fresh flowers and fruits. At last, the long-awaited moment comes. After dinner, as darkness casts its shadow, young and old, wearing their most ceremonial attire, rush excitedly to the "torch tower" square. Cheers and screams of delight burst from the lips of the excited crowd, while the soaring flames brighten the darkness of the night and warm everyone's heart. It really is an amazing sight the torches are as numerous as there are stars in the sky. On such a brilliant night, all the participants are intoxicated by the grand spectacle and the atmosphere of celebration. Dressed in splendid costumes bedecked with sparkling ornaments, young men and women sing and dance hand in hand around the bonfire to express their gratitude for a life of plenty and good wishes for the coming year.
