DATE: 20-24 March 2023
TOUR: Fixed Departure

The festival takes place on the ground of Punakha Dzong. It is a Buddhist festival in honor of Guru Rinpoche the saint who brought Buddhism to Bhutan. The unfurling of the Thongdrol (large tapestry) of Guru Rinpoche is the main attraction of the festival. It is believed that a mere sight of the Thongdrol liberates an onlooker and cleanses his of her sins. This festival is also a commemoration of the Bhutanese victory over the Tibetan army in the 17th century. The ‘Pazaps’ or local militia men, dressed in battle gear with a fierce war cry imitate the battle fought to safeguard this Dzong from the Tibetan invaders.
During festival, People from all corners of the country attend festivities in their finest attires decorated with valuable jewels and ornaments. Families gather and feast on elaborate packed lunches, picnicking in circles splayed out around the monasteries.
