Mongar Tsechu Festival

Mongar is the fastest growing district in eastern Bhutan with the Tshanglas and Kurtoeps mainly inhabiting it. The ruins of the Zhongar Dzong, one of the oldest monuments in the country, can be seen on the Mongar-Bumthang highway.

The new Mongar Dzong was built in 1953 at the command of the third King, His Majesty Jigme Dorji Wangchuck.

The annual three-day Mongar Tsechu is held every November at the Mongar Dzong and people from as far as Trashigang and Lhuentse come to take part in it.
