Visit during winter and get immersed in the colours of the fall festivities or get mesmerized with some animist rituals. Sarpang district is one of the newly opened destinations when Gelephu was made feasible for entry and exit of tourists. At the moment, Gelephu is the only destination opened for cultural highlights.
