"It is a scared (sic) place for pilgrimage...Enjoy your visit and please be extra cautious on the trail."
The latter is extremely good advice...
Back at Day 3 of the festival:
Delicious fried barley momos (a speciality from the western Haa valley in Bhutan) with the inevitable chilli sauce /
We enjoy another glass or three of Bhutanese Druk 11000 beer (8%)
The climax of the festival - the arrivalof the Lord of Death / Scamble to receive his blessing
For the local people, the festival is the major religious & social event of the year
We met this little girl at the festival & then chanced upon her
when we ate that evening in her parents' restaurant in Jakar /
Karma & Sheila with our car, before setting out from the house to head back west
