Ura Yachoe Festival – 20 to 24 April, 2024

Ura Valley | Bumthang

  • The Ura Yakchoe festival was celebrated to appease and make offerings to the god of yak. It was a practice emerging from bonism, which was common before the advent of Buddhism in the 18th Century.
  • The festival continues to be named Yakchoe but it took a turn in terms of significance and practice. A similar practice called Yakla, which also appeases and celebrated the god of yak is celebrated each year in Ura in the seventh month of the Bhutanese calendar.
