Gomphu Kora Tshechu,held in early spring, is very popular festival in the eastern region of Bhutan.Gomphu means “Meditation Cave” and Kora means “Circumambulation”. The biggest attraction of Gomphu Kora is the Circumambulation. The name is derived from a cave formed out of a rock- face next to a temple that has been built as a tribute to this scared site.

The place comes alive, once every year in early spring when people all over eastern Bhutan descend upon the narrow valley, dressed in their finery, to take part in the festivity, to worship and to reaffirm their connection with the past.
