Punakha festival is the perfect occasion to closely witness Bhutan’s unique culture and traditions, history, legend and religion.
In the past Bhutan had used various means of defense strategies to protect its sovereignty from the Tibetan invaders. On the last day, the Punakha Festival portrays one of such defenses with a grand procession of Bhutanese troops marching into the battlefield and commemorating the great victory over the Tibetan invaders in the 17th century.
