The Jhomolhari Mountain Festival is one of the ecotourism initiatives undertaken by the Community Based Snow Leopard Conservation Committee which was formed during our founder's tenure with the Ecotourism Division of the Forestry and Parks Services in 2014 and since then has become a successful yearly program.

He will have more to relate to as he basically has done intensive socio-economic studies across all sections of the community (including all the highland communities) of Bhutan.

This initiative was the joint collaboration of the Bhutan Foundation and Jigme Dorji National Park involving the local community to promote the co-existence of humans and nature.

This festival is held every year in mid-October, and during the festival, you will be witnessing camera traps being set up by the local community apart from seeing the mask dances, folk dances, and various highland produce being displayed.
