The third Jomolhari Mountain Festival was funded by the Tourism Council of Bhutan. We supported a health screening campaign at the festival in collaboration with the Faculty of Nursing and Public Health, Khesar Gyalpo University of Medical Sciences. The festival is a perfect time for conducting annual medical check-ups when the local residents are all gathered in one place. Normally, during other times, they are either scattered across the mountainside in their herders’ camps or traveling for trade and other business.
