Azhey Lhamo

August 12 - August 13

In the heart of Bhutan’s Bumthang District, a remarkable tradition unfolds exclusively among the women of Ura village.

Embarking on a three-day spiritual journey, these women ascend the mountain overlooking Ura, their dance steps echoing through the dawn. Their purpose: to invite the local deities to a grand celebration, seeking blessings for bountiful harvests and favorable weather.

This unique ritual, deeply rooted in Ura’s cultural tapestry, stands as a testament to the enduring power of female empowerment and spiritual devotion.
