Dochula Druk Wangyel Festival

Established to commemorate the rule of Jigme Singye Wangchuck, the fourth king of Bhutan, who reigned from 1972-2006, the Dochula Druk Wangyel Festival is a cultural event held annually at the 3100-metre Dochula Pass in the Eastern Himalayan mountains. Offering views of the scenic snow-covered mountain range, the festival sees royal family and ministers join local and foreign spectators to watch a series of Bhutanese folk and mask dance performances by the Royal Bhutan Army. Visit the iconic Druk Wangyal Lhakhang temple and the 108 chortens before you check the festival off your list.
