Druk wangyel festival
The Dochula Festival, also known as the Druk Wangyel Tshechu, was established in 2011 under the patronage of Queen Mother Ashi Dorji Wangmo Wangchuck. It stands out from other festivals because it is entirely performed by the Royal Bhutan Army instead of the usual involvement of monastic figures. To prepare for this unique event, the soldiers undergo an intensive three-month training program in folk and mask dances. The festival commences at 9 am and concludes at 4:15 pm, offering a day filled with vibrant cultural performances.
Apart from the tshechu, this 7-day journey immerses you in the vibrant culture of Bhutan and experience the true spirit of the Himalayan kingdom. Explore the valleys of Thimphu, Punakha and Paro, and hike to the iconic Tiger’s Nest Monastery. This tour offers a unique blend of cultural immersion, historical exploration, and natural beauty.
