Tharpaling Thongdrol

March 14, 2025

Tharpaling Thongdrel is a one-day celebration held in Bumthang. The festival centers around a giant thongdrel—a magnificent tapestry—depicting revered figures: Jowo Jampa and Kuenkhen Longchen Rabjam. For 10 days, the monks of Tharpaling Monastery engage in Moelam Chenmo rituals, connecting with the local community in Chumey, Bumthang. Unlike other Bhutanese festivals, Tharpaling Thongdrel doesn’t feature mask dances. Instead, it’s a serene and introspective affair, where spirituality takes center stage. Witness the intricate thongdrel, feel the ancient energy, and connect with Bhutan’s profound culture. Let the peaceful vibes of Tharpaling envelop you
