Local Tibetans celebrated the annual Bathing Festival, which usually falls on the first ten days of July on Tibetan calendar, in their time-honored ways. Mass bathing starts when Venus rises to the sky and ends when the star sets. Legend goes that bathing at this period is beneficial to health. [Photo/Xinhua]
