15:43, January 28, 2010  

As the traditional Tibetan New Year which falls on February 14, 2010, is coming, Tibet Tourism Bureau has arranged travel routes to attract tourists from home and abroad to experience a special Tibetan New Year on the plateau.

As the largest festival in Tibet, Tibetan New Year has heavy Tibetan flavor. At four or five o'clock on the morning of the first day of the new year, locals get up to carry water from the river for best wishes towards the new year.

According to the tradition, Tibetans will visit relatives and friends in the whole month of January. Tourism departments have prepared to welcome travellers coming to Tibetan family to enjoy Gutu, a kind of Tibetan food and attend the activities such as evil-driving and worshiping mammon.
