Day 6. Blumthang and Jambay Festival

Our sixth day in Bhutan is a colorful one. After a tasty breakfast of buckwheat pancakes, a local speciality, we set out to arrive early for the Jambay festival. This is a Buddhist festival that celebrates fertility. The people see these festivals as major social events and show up dressed in their finest with picnic baskets full of food and drink. Revelry is not uncommon. One of the events our guide did not take us to is a midnight naked dance. Lots to say but our tour guide is pulling us away.
