Gangtey Goenpa Tshechu

September 16 - September 18

The 2024 Gangtey Tshechu festival in Bhutan will take place over three days in the serene courtyard of Gangtey Monastery. Nestled in a quaint spur, the monastery offers a breathtaking view of the picturesque Phobjikha Valley, known as the winter sanctuary for rare black-necked cranes. The festival showcases traditional mask dances rooted in the rich Peling tradition, alongside vibrant folk performances by local residents. Culminating in “Needup Langwa,” a spiritual ritual for bestowing wisdom and strength, the festival embodies Bhutan’s cultural heritage and spiritual essence. The last day will witness the unfurling of the Thongdroel
