Mongar Tsechu

November 28, 2025 - November 30, 2025

Mongar, situated in eastern Bhutan, earns its moniker as the “Bastion of the Zhongarps,” paying homage to the influential Dzongpons of Zhongar who left an indelible mark on the nation’s history. Evidence of Zhongar’s legacy endures in the form of ruins adjacent to the Lingmethang highway, a precursor to reaching Mongar.

The predominant inhabitants of this locale are the Tshanglas and the Kurtoeps, distinguished by their respective languages, Tshanglakha and Kurtoepaikha. Renowned for its masterful wood carvings, the region boasts a rich artistic tradition.

Initiated by the visionary third King Jigme Dorji Wangchuck in 1953, the construction of the new Dzong in Mongar now serves as the epicenter of administration, housing pivotal decision-making processes.

An eagerly anticipated local affair is the annual three-day Tshechu, held every November, attracting attendees from far-flung regions like Trashigang and Lhuentse. Additionally, the region hosts various Tshechus throughout the year, each with its own distinctive dances and customs, promising visitors a vibrant and captivating local festival experience whenever they choose to visit.
