The Paper Birds of Lhasa

The Paper Birds of Lhasa
Saturday, October 8, 2011

In Tibet, especially in the city of Lhasa, the arrival of autumn signals the beginning of kite-flying season. Enjoyed by all ages, kite flying can be a pleasant pastime or a fierce competition where flyers coat their string with crushed glass in order to cut down other kites in a kind of midair battle.

Join us as we explore this hobby enjoyed by many across the Tibetan Plateau, and learn how to make your own Tibetan kite.
