Festivals are among the top attractions in Bhutan. The Dochula Druk Wangyel Tshechu (Festival) was established in 2011 in commemoration of His Majesty the Fourth Druk Gyalpo.
The Tshechu takes place every December 13th at the Druk Wangyal Lhakhang Festival Ground located at Dochula Pass around 22km from the capital city Thimphu. Dochula Pass is one of the most scenic locations in the entire kingdom, offering a stunning panoramic view of the Himalayan mountain range. Set amidst this breathtaking backdrop, the Dochula Druk Wangyal Tsehchu is an experience unlike any other and truely exemplifies Bhutanese cultural traditions.
