If you want to see some really incredible archery practice, this is the place! Archers hitting the target at 145m under the full moonlight, the highlight of my Thimphu trip.

We had the pleasure spectating the league competition. I must say the skills required is high as the archers were aiming at 150 yards. We also witnessed the song and dance when the archer hit the target.

It’s a short stop but very cool to watch the enthusiasm of the archers enjoying the national sport. These guys are guide good but it seems a little unsafe to sit so close to where they are shooting. We were lucky to watch the old...More

It's a good place to hangout with friends and families during weekends. You can watch football, lawn tennis, compound bow archery and traditional bow archery matches. The ways Bhutanese cheers their team members especially in archery matches and how they celebrate every shot is something...More
