Tour Summary:

Gomkora Tsechu, is one of the most celebrated festivals in Eastern Bhutan, with the Dakpa tribe from Tawang, the bordering Indian state of Arunachal Pradesh, participating in the festive.

Gomkora derives its name from “Gomphu Kora” – “Gom” meaning meditation; “Phu” cave and “Kora” circumambulation.
