Time to harvest highland barley in Tibet

As autumn approaches in Tibet, it is time to harvest highland barley again. With the farmlands gradually becoming dyed by the golden barley, it is a busy but happy season for Tibetan people on the plateau.

After being harvested, highland barley stacks queuing in the farmlands lend more enchantment to the season. Tibetan people would sit around and enjoy the newly brewed highland barley wine, worshiping the heaven and earth and toasting each other, to decelerate the good harvest of this year and look forward to that of the coming year.
