An ethnic Miao man pounds cooked glutinous rice to make cakes, or Ciba, on the first day of the Guzang Festival in Leishan county, where most of the Miao ethnic group live, southeast Guizhou province, November 26, 2012. Guzang Festival, during which the Miao ethnic minority people commemorate their ancestors once every 13 years, is one of the biggest traditional festivals for the Miao ethnic minority people. "Gu" literally means "drum", and "zang" means "to bury". The complicated rites which take three years to complete consist of a series of great ceremonies, including the Zhaolong (inviting the dragon), Xinggu (awakening the drum), Yinggu (welcoming the drum), Shenniu (inspecting the cattle), and the white drum ritual, which is a significant sacrifice marking the end of the festival. The Miao believe wooden drums made of maple trees are where their ancestors' souls rest, so they gather under the holy maple and communicate with their ancestors through drumming and dancing, local media reported.

The village, with a branch of ethnic Miao minority of about 2,100 in population, is believed to be the last village authorized by the government to keep guns. The Basha men used to make their living as hunters with guns on their shoudles and knives on their waist. But nowadays their tradition has become a way to boost tourism, local media reported.

An ethnic Hmong man lies on the ground drunk at the Khau Vai 'love market' in Vietnam's northern Ha Giang province, 500 km (310 miles) north of Hanoi May 10, 2010. For nearly a hundred years, thousands of people from local ethnic tribes have convened a "love market" each year in the mountainous village Khau Vai in northern Vietnam on the 26th and 27th days of the third lunar month. This is no ordinary farmer's market. Flirting, courting and, hopefully, canoodling are the order of the day. Some travel days to attend. Young, dreamy singles trek to Khau Vai in hopes of finding a first love. Wayward lovers come to escape their families. Older generations might hope to bump into an old flame. (Married men and women often return to the love market to rendezvous with former lovers, and they are allowed to meet again without jealousy from their spouses during this one event of the year). Members of Giay, Nung, Tay, Dzao, San Chi, Lo Lo and Hmong hill tribes trek from across the mountainous districts of the Dong Van Plateau and as far away as nearby Cao Bang province to Khau Vai, which is in Ha Giang province near the border with China. Legend has it the market dates back to 1919. A young couple from different tribes, Nung and Giay, are said to have met at Khau Vai. The girl was so beautiful, though, that her tribe did not want to let her marry a man from another tribe. A violent conflict resulted between the two tribes. One day, as the boy watched the two tribes do battle, he ran to the girl and they decided that to stop the bloodshed they would part ways. But they made a pact: once a year, on the 26th day of the third month of the lunar year, they would meet at Khau Vai. Thereafter Khau Vai became a meeting place for lovers.
