After spending the morning at the Trongsa Dzong and wandering Trongsa town, we set out on a leisurely four-hour drive to Jakar Village in Bumthang. The route crosses Yotong La (10,800 ft.) marked by a chorten and an array of prayer flags. If the weather was clear and we could see Jhomolhari (23,540 ft.) and other peaks, which marks the boundary between western and central Bhutan as well as the western border of Jigme Singye Wangchuck National Park. Passing Longte Valley where people raise sheep and yaks, we continued on to Jakar, the central town of the Bumthang district. In the evening we visited the Jambey Lakhang temple to see the fire ceremony. Tomorrow morning, we will attend the Jambey Lakhang Festival to see pilgrims doing a Kora (circumambulation) as well as various mask dances.
