One of the smallest districts in the country adjoins Paro, Chukha and Samtse with an area of 1706 sq.km. People of the valley once had the belief that all natural things, such as plants, animals, rocks, thunder and earthquakes, have spirits and can influence human events. Still some events of that tradition exist and demonstrated during the festivals and rituals.
