Nimalung Tsechu Festival

A 15-minute drive from the road point that branches off from Chumey, Dasho Gonpo Dorji and Doring Trulku Jamyang Kunzang founded the lhakhang in 1935. The two-storied temple houses a magnificent statue of Guru Rinpoche.

The local Tsechu is held once a year in the 5th month of the Bhutanese calendar. During the Tsechu a Thongdrol (gigantic scroll painting) of Guru Rinpoche, 9 meters long and 12 meters wide is unfurled.
