Yi Peng Festival – Loy Krathong Chiang Mai – 2012
The amazing Yi Peng Sky Lantern festival takes place in November every year across Thailand. But without a doubt the most concentrated amount of lanterns is released behind Mae Jo University in Chiang Mai.
Over 10,000 ‘Khom Loy’ Sky Lanterns are lit in unison after a Buddhist ceremony performed by respected monks. When the moment is announced the lanterns are launched and rise to unbelievable heights. Creating a stream of glittering jewels in the night sky.
