"Lingka" means leisure time in woods. In Lhasa, people follow a tradition to spend "Lingka" during which people camp out and have picnics in parks or suburbs. They always bring local food like butter tea, crisp fried cakes, dried meat, desserts and fruits with them at a nearby meadow to spend the "lingka" with their family members and friends. "Lingka" usually starts from early May and goes into climax at Shoton Festival which falls from August 11 to 17 this year. (Xinhua/Wang Qingqin)
