Eastward to Drametse Source of the Dance of Drums
A UNESCO cultural heritage
9 Nights/10 Days
The Dremetse Tshechu is one of the most important festivals in eastern Bhutan. It was here that the popular Dremetse Ngacham (Dance of the Drums from Dremetse) was born. The mask dance was selected as one of the 80 global masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity in 2005 by UNNESCO. It is a highly revered dance and performed in tshechus all over the country. The dance is a dramatization of the dance performed in Zangtopelri, the Copper Coloured Palace of Guru Rinpoche.
