Ura under Bumthang district is a secluded village about 50 kilometers away from Bumthang town en route to eastern region of Mongar district. A cluster of approximately 40 households encloses their community Lhakhang (temple). The village also has a central school where students from across the central region of Bhutan come to study. Owing to its high altitude, locals mostly raise yaks and sheep. The idyllic village comes to life on a local festival known as the Ura Yakchoe.
