SAKTANG FESTIVAL

Location: Saktang Lhakhang, Trashigang

Sakten valley is situated in eastern Bhutan under Trashigang Dzongkhag at an altitude of 3000

meters. It is inhabited by a semi-nomadic people known as the Brokpas.

The Sakten Tshechu is held for three days each year at the Sakten Lhakhang. The festival is a

lively, colorful and jovial event as the Brokpas are all dressed in their traditional finery and enjoying

the celebration with rounds of ara (local wine). The rare Yak dance and the Ache Lhamo is the

highlight of the festival. These dances are unique to the Brokpa culture and are quite distinctive from

the usual mask dances seen in other parts of the country.
