Discovering Traditional Sports in Bhutan

Known for its awe-inspiring natural scenery and rich culture, Bhutan also has fascinating sporting traditions that are worth witnessing while on your stay. Finding a centrally located Bhutan hotel is always helpful and Uma Bhutan which features luxurious private villas is an ideal option. This Paro hotel looks out across the Paro Valley and makes a great base for your adventures. Those interested in local recreation should definitely try and witness archery, the country’s national sport. Traditional archery competitions generally take place in the villages and these events are usually marked with much singing, dancing and sharing of food. An interesting element of these competitions is the fact that opponents use a variety of techniques to try and distract the shooter! ‘Khuru’ which is a form of darts and ‘Digor’ which is a form of shot put are among the other traditional sports in Bhutan, while more modern recreational pursuits such as cricket and football are also gaining popularity.
