If you enquire about Naked Dance Festivals in Bhutan, you’ll probably be led to the annual event in Bumthang in Jambay Lhakhang but did you know that there are far more eventful performances in the east? The Mey Lhha Naked Dance Festival in Chhema, Trashiyantse is one of them.
Imagine this: you’re surrounded by snow capped mountains, dome shaped tents made of yak hair and you’re in the middle of one of Bhutan’s most popular highland festivals.
How much do we really know about ancient Bhutan? Who were the original settlers? My recent trip to the Monpa festival in Jangbi, Trongsa was a voyage into a portal of ancient Bhutan; a time when the tribes of the mountain forest existed and a time when a tribal community lived together with nature.
