Danoe is one of the best guides I ever had in the time I travelled around the world for his excellent guide, euthusiasm and passion to service delivery. He was beyond expection for caring about our health and interest. He has shown a high level of professionalism and enthusiasm.
The driver Norbu was very cooperative and professional. The road condition was quite bad but that was for him to show his excellent skill.
We have known and gained a lot through the trip. Tibet people, culture, history...

Torch Festival in Liangshan Prefecture of Sichuan
Learn about "Corridor of Tibetan and Yi Minority"
Start on the 24th of the sixth lunar month, the Torch Festival is a major traditional festival of Minority Yi, which lasts two or three days as usual. Yi people consider that this celebration is for the blessing of the grains, so that they can come out as strong as the torch fire. From generation to generation, Yi people use the torch fire to fight against the evil things about the field and in their houses as well. Nowadays, during the carnival, dressed in the splendid costumes with sparkling ornaments, young men and women sing and dance hand in hand around the bonfire on the carnival to express their appreciation to the fire and the good wishes to the coming year. Enjoy the grand carnival of the Torch Festival, the activities traditional of Minority Yi, such as Bullfight, Horse Racing, Wrestling, etc.
