The “Royal Highlander Festival” is being organized at Laya, Gasa District to sensitize the highlanders on decline of yak farming with increased vulnerability from instantly short term income generating activities that seem to be challenging the sustainability of livelihoods in future in the highlands. The festival is also aimed to enlighten stakeholders on the importance of their spirited participation in enhancing the economic opportunity of the highlanders.
Dochula Festival or Tshechu, Druk Wangyel Tshechu, is commissioned by the Queen Mother Ashi Dorji Wangmo Wangchuck in 2011. This is a unique festival as the festival is fully performed by the Royal Bhutan Army rather than the monastery. The soldiers have been given three months training in folk and mask dance.
The 3-day festival gathers the largest audience of all the festivals in Bhutan. The tshechu is preceded by days and nights of prayers and rituals to invoke the gods. Monks prepare themselves with meditation and prayer for weeks ahead of the festival. The carnival-like atmosphere is a great opportunity for you to learn about Bhutan's rich cultural traditions.
