Blog of the Week – Wangduephodrang District Tshechu

Vicky Chartres is currently teaching English & Geography at Samtengang MSS in Wangdue, and was able to attend the Wangduephodrang Tshechu.

“Tshechu” is the annual event of the year in every district and though it is billed as a religious festival it is much more than that, as evidenced by Vicky’s experience and her colourful pictures from her latest blog post!

Unfortunately in June 2012 the Wangduephodrang Dzongkhag Dzong was burnt to the ground in a fire. As plans are underway to re-build, the Tencholing Army ground is where the Tschechu was held this year.
