Central Bhutan's most popular festivals

Highlights
Jambay Lhakang is a small monastery but one of the oldest in Bhutan, built in 659, the same year the stunning Kyichu Lhakang in Paro was built. The festival staged here is one of the most visited by tourists in Bhutan, the result of which is that the tourists can outnumber the natives.  Although it is rather crowded, the setting against the backdrop of the wide Bumthang Valley and the high peaks far to the north nevertheless provides for a  fine event to witness and spending 5 days in this remarkable valley is un unforgettable experience.

Throughout essentially the same time period, in neighboring Chumey Valley is staged the rewarding Prakhar Tshechu festival. This festival is considered a village festival, where large number of plain folk gathers, a wonderful opportunity to mingle with the locals. The dancing performed by the  monks at Prakhar Tshechu is hailed among the best in Bhutan.
