The Royal Bhutan Army hosts the Druk Wangyel Tshechu Festival to commemorate the victories of Bhutan’s heroic Fourth King. Enjoy panoramic Himalayan views from the scenic Dochula Pass – one of Bhutan’s most stunning natural treasures.
The Druk Wangyel Festival was established in 2011 in commemoration of His Majesty the Fourth Druk Gyalpo and the Armed Forces’ victory over Indian insurgent forces residing in southern Bhutan in 2003. The Tsechu takes place every December 13th at the Druk Wangyel Lhakhang Festival Ground located at Dochula Pass around 22km from the capital city Thimphu. The Druk Wangyal Tshechu is a unique festival in that it is performed by the Royal Bhutan Army rather than monks or lay people.
It is a tribute to the wise leadership of His Majesty Jigme Singye Wangchuck, the Fourth King of Bhutan. It also celebrates the continuous efforts of the Royal Bhutan Army in protecting the sovereignty and the stability of the country.
