  • I loved visiting this art school. It was great to see the students working on traditional Bhutanese art. Incredibly talented students creating incredible pieces of art. Definitely go here!
  • Oct 2017. Just a place to see the Bhutan government training the locals in Bhutanese craft skills. Nothing interesting for tourists. The training is provided free by the government and saw more talking in the classroom than learning from teachers.
  • A good oportunity to see an actual bhutanese school from the inside
  • it is important to bhutanese, but not intereting to tourist
  • Good institute on Bhutanese arts and crafts.
