Xang Khan Festival is the happy day of Muong village in general and of the relatives of shamans in particular. Xang Khan Festival is a holiday for people in all over the village to acknowledge and requite the shamans’ favour for teaching them to heal the diseases for the family. This is also a day for the couples to meet, make friend and even some get married thanks to this festival. This is not a festival for a family, or for the village only, but also for tourists from everywhere to take part in the festival. Previously, Xang Khan festival was taken place in 2-3 days, but now it is held in only 1 day and 1 night.
