Yoghourt is one of the most favorite foods for Tibetans. The renowned "Shoton Festival" is actually a festival to "eat Tibetan yoghourt", with "sho" means "white yoghourt" and "ton" means "eat" in Tibetan language.

In Lhasa, the capital city of Tibet Autonomous Region, people can easily find snack bars or stalls selling Tibetan yoghourt filled in bamboo tubes.

In Beijing, you can find this specialty in many Tibetan restaurants such as Makye-ame and Paltadunokar Tibetan restaurant.
