Chhukha Dzong, CHHUKHA
Chhukha is a hot, wet region of dense Sub-Tropical forests located in South Western Bhutan. The region is home to many important plant and animal species.
There are two main ethnic groups present in Chhukha, the Ngalops and the Lhotshampas. The Lhotshampas are Southern Bhutanese with Nepalese origins and this creates wealth of cultural diversity in the region with various non-Buddhist festivals and practices being carried out.
