Mong ethnic people
Although modern culture has been present in every corner of mountainous hamlets, the passion for melodies of Khen (panpine) has never ceased among men of the Mong ethnic group.
Gau Tao festival is the most important festival for Mong ethnic people. It is held annually in early spring to express gratitude towards gods and to pray for a prosperous and lucky year.
Mong ethnic people in the mountainous northwestern region are celebrating their traditional Tet festival, Nao Pe Chao at the end of the 11th Lunar month.
