On the weekends there are always games being played here. It seems that a single game of archery can take almost as long as a single game of cricket! We stayed for about 45min to watch, and got to see the celebratory "dance" and song...More

If you get some time, do visit this place. You will be able to see some practice session. Archers hitting the target from a long distance. If you are lucky, you may see some competition also.

Quite an experience to witness how the two competing teams 'shooting' each other in the stadium. The range of the archery is around 120 meter (Olympic is only 50 meter) and the target is far more smaller. Athletes stand at both ends of the target...More

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.

I don't know, because their competition schedules are not online. We asked our guide to bring us to a competition if the time fits and maybe you can do the same. It is well worth spending some time to watch one!
