Remarks: 

Zhemgang is one of the remote districts in the country and the annual tshechu is the biggest festival in the district.
Different mask dances are performed during the festival. The highlight of the festival is the unfurling of the huge Thongdrol (large tapestry) of Guru Rinpoche. It is believed that the mere sight of the Thongdrol cleanses one of all sins.
