Mammoth Success Stories and Gratitude!!
Graced by Hon’ble Prime Minister, Dr Lotay Tshering and other Dignitaries, the fourth edition of Royal Highland Festival conducted from 23-24 October 2019 at Langothang, Laya Gewog was a grand success. The festival created awareness to tourists and Bhutanese on the yak based livelihood, existence of nomadic culture and scenic beauty of Laya. The festival also provided new economic avenues for the highlanders through home stays, packed pony services and sale of yak related products. Gasa Dzongkhag and highlanders were fortunate for being imparted a great source of pride and assurance in highland culture and livelihood sustainability.
We are overly excited to inform that with the blessings showered by Their Majesties, a two day program was great success with a varied program of admirable events from all participating Highland Dzongkhags, wonderful display of yak based products and enticing programs from celebrities. We would like to thank all of our valued participants and contributors for supporting us throughout the four editions of Royal Highland Festival. Without your support we wouldn’t have achieved thus far.
We are deeply thankful for the tireless support of the Office of Gyalpoi Zimpon and Department of Livestock, Ministry of Agriculture and Forests.
We would like to once again thank all our esteemed contributors, supporters, participants and volunteers for the festival and Laya Run. Big thank you to all the lovely audience as well.
Thank you for attending our festival and generously supporting us!!!We look forward to continued support in the future.
