Haa Summer Festival

If you wish to experience Bhutan altogether at one place, you may time your visit to attend the Haa Summer festival which his held in Haa in western Bhutan.

This is the biggest festival in the district. The festival is popular for the dance of the ox called the Raksha Mangcham. Apart from this dance, several other mask dances are also performed during the festival. On the third day of the festival, Guru Tshengye Thongdrol (large scroll painting of Guru Rinpoche and his eight manifestations) is unfurled for people to get blessings from.

This festival has it all. It gives you a wonderful insight to the lifestyle of nomadic highlanders in Bhutan. The different culture and traditions of Bhutan is displayed. An alpine flower exhibition is held and tourists can also try their hand at local sports. Several cultural programs are hosted included dances and songs.

This is also a good time to see the rare and endangered flower, White Poppy (Meconopsis superba), which grows in Haa and nowhere else in the entire world.

If you wish to attend the festival, we can combine this experience for you with several other options likes farm-stay, hot stone bath, hikes and treks.
