festival is held in November on the same day as the national
festival Loi Krathong. Mae Hong Son's Loi Krathong is locally
called Yi Peng, and takes place around Chong Kum pool at Wat
Phra That Doi Kong Mu. People bring their own "Krathong,"
a lotus-shaped basket traditionally made of banana leaves
and stem containing flowers, a candle and incense, and release
it into the pool. In addition to the ceremony, there is a
wide variety of entertainment available.
