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.

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!
