Created by the His Majesty, the king of Bhutan to display the culture of the Highlanders of the Himalayan Mountains, the Royal Highland Festival brings together tribes from all over the country. He actually shows up to the festival and greets guests walking down a procession to say hello to visitors. And we had a short conversation with him. Bit no cameras allowed.
To get to the festival it is a two day trek it is a several hour drive from Thimpu where our buses parked near Gasa to start a two day trek to Laya through. The treks takes you through the beautiful valleys of the Himalayas. The high Himalayan Mountain range can be seen in the distance. It's a tough and rugged climb, but the festival is worth every minute.
