An unprecedented number of people attended the concluding day of the Trakhar Kuchoe, gathering at the festival to be doubly blessed by the presence of His Majesty The King.

His Majesty yesterday, graced the Kuchoe held annually at Trakhar Nagtshang in Chumey, Bumthang, and granted Tokha to the gathering who had congregated from neighbouring valleys for the special event.

His Majesty also granted a Thongdrol of Thuksey Dawa Gyaltshen to the Nagtshang for the community. Thuksey Dawa Gyaltshen, who is one of Terton Pema Lingpa’s sons, established the Nagtshang and the Trakhar Zhelgno lineage.

The Trakhar Kuchoe was celebrated with various dances of the Peling tradition.

Earlier in the morning, His Majesty offered prayers at the Jambay Lhakhang, where the annual Jambay Lhakhang Drup is ongoing.
